Can a good boot fitter work with these?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I can get a good deal on some Dalbello Avanti v10 boots that shell fit properly according to the guides I have seen.  My questions is can a good boot fitter work with these boots in order to fine tune for my feet?  My right leg requires a 3/8" lift due to a broken leg in high school and I walk a little on the outside of that foot.  Would I be better off saving the money and putting it toward a new pair of boots in a month or so?  The deal on the boots is almost too good to pass up.

if you need some kind of external lift added, the avanti is limited because it has screwed in sole plates that make it difficult to ad lift and then router the top ledge of the toe and heel. ( 3/8" is not that big a lift)  a creative boot fitter may be able to work out your problem with that model.

 

for adding additional height to the short leg, your fitter would have an easier time with a solid soled boot. ( bummer for you is they tend to be more expensive, higher performing boots )

Thank you for the reply.  Can you give me an idea of models that have a solid soled boot?  I am trying to get a better idea of what I am looking at for price so I make sure I am covered before making the drive to a fitter.

is it possible for you to post the measurements of your feet, as well a photo of what they look like. and details of age, height, weight, level of fitness, other sports that you do.

 

also a bit about your skiing story, what, where, when, how often, goals and aspirations, etc...

 

without specific info, having us throw out boot model suggestions would be like playing chess blind folded.

Will do, thank you for your time.  I understand I am asking a lot with little information, I just want to make sure I have the information and funds necessary before making a 5+ hour trip to Tahoe to see you guys. :)
