So I'm an intermediate skier.
The last 2 pairs of ski boots I had were not fitted properly by a boot fitter, they were bought at a general sports store without much knowledge in that department.
I went to a boot fitter this time to get new boots and tried a few. Ended up picking the Rossignol Electra Sensor3 90s.
Now I haven't skiied in them yet, going this weekend but I've been wearing the boots around the house for a bit to let the liner mold to my foot shape.
Right now, the length feels right, toes pressing against the front when I stand straight but don't touch/barely barely touch when I bend.
My question is about the part between the toes and the ankle though. The arch part if you will.
Should it be really really tight without any space for the foot to move up and down?? From online comments I read about boots being really tight, that area of my boot right now doesn't feel that tight. I was told by the boot fitter that I shouldn't buckle the buckles really tight because that means the boot is too big? So right now buckling pretty loosely I can't exactly lift my foot but it's not really tight. Is that ok? Or does that mean the boot isn't fitting properly? Should I just buckle tighter or should I try a different model boot?
My heel cannot move up, and I definitely cannot slide my foot front and back at all or side to side.
