Best Time to Get fitted for boots (morning or after a day of skiing)?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

So I'm going to buy a pair of boots this weekend and am wondering when is the best time to get fitted. We'll be getting in at night and skiing the next day. Is it better to get fitted that first morning or wait until after the day of skiing/the second morning? We will be skiing for 3 days.

 

I know feet swell throughout the day and didn't know if that would be a factor. Also is it better to have a day of skiing fresh on your mind before going in?

 

Thanks in advance!

It would be a good idea to check with your fitter who may have a certain time preference.   I dunno if morning or afternoon is better in regard to how feet swell or feel.  I had mine done after skiing and they turned out perfect.

ha agree. Whenever your bootfitter is the most free and ready to help you is when to go.

 

But you can bring up that question with him, and perhaps he'll say put on your slightly thicker or thinner pair of socks to account for that in the fitting.

I got my first pair of fitted boots yesterday. I decided about mid day I'd had enough pain that I just went right to the shop to get some new boots. Wasn't too busy, so I got quick service and a lot of attention. I would go early- mid day. I went back around 4 to pick up something I forgot and it was much busier.

 

If you're going to a good bootfitter, it should be a very involved process, so the less busy it is the more he can focus on you.

 

Love my new boots by the way, about 100 times better than what I had. I have odd feet, and it made a really big difference for me.

 

Where are you skiing?
