Are rear entry boots still available to buy new?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

 I seriously struggle to get ski boots on my feet, I have herniated discs in my back and the associated nerve damage to match.

 My toes point upwards naturally and I have virtually no feeling in them. (I thought I'd just stubbed my toe turned out it had been dislocated for hours)

 Just the act of attempting to point my toes then stuffing them in my boot and pushing my foot down is often enough to screw my back for the day.

 I am determined to keep skiing so there has to be another way?

 I am wondering if rear entry boots would provide the solution?

 I would need to get proffesionally fit as I have very flat wide (eee) feet and would far prefer new rather than playing russian roulette on ebay!

 I'd be looking to do this in the UK.

 Would appreciate your advice re an alternative solution if this just not feasible. Cheers.

some of the 3 prt designs (full tilt, krypton, hell and back) are VERY easy to get on, and are still adjustable for extra width as needed.   plus they ski well too.

 

as you said, find a boot fitter.

The Lange Delight series offers a cuff that opens pretty generously and it is a wider last boot.

 Thank you folks, I shall have a ring round to see whats in stock around the UK and make an appointment for a fitting. I have a feeling I'll be ending up having a trip to Bicester or Fulham in the near future as they seem to have the best reputation with awkward buggers!
