New Boots [Texas]

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Alright so here's the deal, I'm a pretty good skier from the park to back bowls to groomers etc. I ride some 167 Dynastar Distorters with marker griffons. My boots... Some old 28.5 tecnicas that I bought used, I don't even know the name. I'm 5'8" and weigh 130lbs and am looking for some new boots. Honestly I don't know what to look for in a boot for performance and comfort. So, I'm very open I any suggestions anyone might have. Thanks.

Get thee to a qualified bootfitter!

 

Seriously.  Any advice I would give you would be worthless as your feet are not mine.  

 

The only real way to get a quality fit for ski boots is to be evaluated by a quality bootfitter and then try his recommendations.  Once you have the shell and liner fit nailed, you can discuss custom footbeds and modifications.

Cold enough for snow down there this week.  :)

 

Depending on where you ski, you may want to take an extra day on your next trip and get fitted on the mountain.  The nice thing about doing it there is that you can try them and then have them tweaked on the spot.
