So we're talking millimeters here. widths of pencils, heck twice the gap of my Volvo's spark plug. Its hard to imagine that my foot wouldnt swell or the thickness of a sock couldnt take up a little extra space. Oh and get this I was surfing the subject and found on eHow they were saying just toss your boot liner into the oven for 10min at 225 degrees then stick it into the shell and wallah perfect fitting liner. :)
Im not skiing black diamonds or laying train tracks down the north face. Im just carving up the corduroy listening to Axl whine about Mr.Brownstone.
However the time I skiied Zugspitze in Germany on rental equipment I had the burning quads and always felt like I was in the back seat. I chalked it up to dehydration and poor skills, but good to know that a pooly fitting ski boot will do that as well. Ive also had the 10,000 leagues under the sea tight & stiff boot that I would unbuckle before even getting to the bottom of the run, cold toes, numbness, no fun.
Im going to use up a Saturday getting fitted for ski boots arent I, crap.
No no, its for the best, one afternoon dedicated to getting the perfect fitting ski boot will make the whole season awesome. I just never gave it this much thought before.
It was fun chatting with you guys, thanks for your time.
