Hey guys I have to admit I was one of those guys that thought a skiers main priority in getting gear was Skis but how wrong I was, as we all should know that Boots are much more important...'Great Fitting Boots' to be precise...correct? So I ask this question if you are unable to get to a ski-boot fitter can you really give your measurements to a boot-fitter with all the necessary information for them to make an informed choice on your behalf....the answer is apparently Yes and No check out this response I have....
~~Thank you for your email. The answer to your question is yes and no, yes it is possible for me to pick the best boot for your foot shape by you giving me some information (see questions below) but no it’s not possible to complete a custom boot fit without your foot. What I would suggest is you give me the information below and I can then give you the best suggestions regarding correct boots, socks, footbeds and anything else that may be needed and we can send them to you with a guide of how to fit and go from there, if not correct you can always send back.
~~Information we would need to find some boots that would fit you foot shape and ability would be the following:
Normal shoe size (please state UK or USA) Length of foot weighted and un-weighted in CM Width of foot weighted and un-weighted in MM
Fore foot profile: narrow, medium, wide
Heel profile: narrow, medium, wide Instep profile : low, medium, high (this is the height from the ground to top off your foot where your arch is)
Arch profile: low, medium, high Ability Any previous problems in ski boot Any injuries
So your thoughts, would you pursue this avenue? They have an excellent reputation regarding boot-fitting. Thanks.
