Tip for difficulty getting your foot into your ski boots.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I'm not a boot fitter but have a helpful hint for getting into ski boots. I put a 2 1/2 inch piece of shiny, slippery aluminum tape (used for furnace duct sealing/NOT cloth duct tape) over the arch of the footbed starting just where the ball of my foot hits the pnch point getting into the boot. The tape isn't in the heel area nor the metatarsal and toe area so my foot is still held solid once in the boot.

Great idea.  Also look for a sock with more shear.  Look for a sock with the most slippery fibers.  Bridgedale Micro Light are pretty smooth.  Go to a fancy men's shop and get a thin 100% silk sock or to a pharmacy and get a diabetic sock made out of shear polyester.  Some "medical socks" are very slick.
