Buying Boots Online - Bootfitting in Vail

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hello,

First time skier in US. Mainly on piste, almost never power. i'd say level 7 type skier.
I am going to spend a week in Vail in December. Since my gear is back in Europe (and is pretty outdated too honestly) was planning to buy at least new boots, since I hate demoing boots.

I have pretty narrow and flat feet (yeh, I need orthotics) and has been looking to pruchase Salomon Falcon boots couple years ago since somebody recommended for my type of feet, but they do not seem to be producing it anymore...

My question is, what can be a good boot I could purchase online, since I do care about the price, and where in Vail I can get proper bootfitting (including orthotics) to make them comfortable? I was looking at Surefoot but the price is way too high for me. Maybe I can go with their footbeds only?

Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Gio

or buy the falcons (they are older boots, and should be on sale)

 

or just buy the red boots,   they are the best this year..

Honestly you have a golden opportunity here to visit one of the best fitters on earth while you are in Vail.  Check out SBF Ski Boot Fitting and Greg Hoffman a board certified pedorthist.  You will get it done right and be very happy with your skiing and comfort!
