Figuring out boot adjustments and breaking them in.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

So I just bought a new pair, Diabello Viper 10. These are going to be the first boots I've ever owned, as I've skied rentals until now.

 

They were professionally fitted, all the stuff with the foot in the empty shell and all that. The shop I bought them from guarantees all of their new boot sales, and will do any adjustments for fit that I need for the first season. How should I go about figuring out what adjustments to make? Just wear them around the house a bunch? Or do I wait until I've actually skied on them before I do anything?

 

Also, is there any break-in stuff I can do right now? Or do I have to just deal with them for the first few times skiing on them?

ski them.   Ski boots are not made to work well walking around the house (just as house slippers dont ski well)  wait until you ski them, and see what happens,   As long as things feel better each day, and you can wear the boots for longer amounts of time each day, you are doing great...

Thanks, that's about what I was guessing. It'll be interesting to see how they break in. Can't wait for the season to start.
