When do you upgrade boots

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi all , noob here, I think I am a level 3-4 skier, skied  for ~60 hrs, and I start find the Atomic LF60 27.5 (I wear 10.5 , 6ft, 195lb ) is a tard to un-responsive and a bit wide to me, I have to crank the buckle to the second last one for it to fit properly, even that, my feet occasionally shift back and front, hence banging my toes to the boots, not to mention I could lift my ankle a bit when I put pressure on my toes.


I wonder if I should upgrade to something stiffer and narrower? or it is just normal for boots to feel like that? 

 

thx

It sounds like the boots don't fit properly and you need to invest in a boot fitter and some new boots. However, you may want to pose this question in the Ask the Boot Guys section of this forum.

Maybe something smaller, that boot is too big.  Find a skilled boot fitter and work with them on a new purchase.  A boot that doesn't fit is wasted money no matter how good a "deal" it might seem like at the time.
