I'm currently studying in Ithaca, NY at Cornell University. I didn't get boots yet and I'm probably going to buy this year, despite the fact that my dad kept growing in college. I visited the Cayuga ski & cycling shop but they seemed to have a very limited selection and high prices. I'm nearly 5'6" and 145 pounds, so I got a pretty small foot at 24.5 and so my selection is even more limited. And my foot is a wide foot too, so that certainly doesn't help either. I will be racing on the team at Cornell but want a boot that I can use all-mountain and in the park without killing my knees, so it should be semi-stiff but not super stiff. Anyways, the shop in Ithaca is going to get back to me in a week or so as they claim that there will be a wider selection, but can anyone recommend any other shops within a reasonable drive? And what are people's experiences with ordering a boot online? Any specific boots I should look at? I don't have a hard budget, but nothing too expensive.
Sorry, first time buying a boot and I always rented boots at the same place every year in Westchester, NY. Any help would be appreciated!
