Boots for solid intermediate skier with skinny ankles-heels - starting point? brands?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi everyone, 

I'm looking to buy my first pair of boots as I'm bored of having ill-fitting rental boots. 
I'm a solid intermediate skier, slightly clumsy looking on blacks but I get down ok. 

 

I'd like to push faster in a more aggressive position, and am planning to try on the boots in a store (any tips around NYC?) But would like to have a few brands/directions I can start with so I'm speaking the same language as the sales guy

 

Any tips much appreciated

Jess

Jess,

 

it is impossible for any of us to recommend a boot to you, we do not have your feet in front of us... all the brands make boots for the skier you describe, some make them wide, some narrow but most do wide, narrow and everything in between, it is a case of working with your fitter to find what is best for you, your skiing and where you want to go with your skiing, i will let someone more local give you a fitter suggestion as i don't know the area very well at all, i spent a month there in 2002 but was in a lecture room for 12+ hours a day so didn't see much

 

if you have a read at the wiki at the top of the forum "which boot will work for me" it will give you some ideas of what to expect and how to go about the fitting process... the key is finding the fitter who A) is good at the job and B) you can work with

 

good luck getting your boots sorted, it will make a massive difference to your skiing
