Vintage Scott Ski Boots SIZE (????)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hello!

 

I just bought these Vintage Scott Ski Boots and I was wondering if any of you could size them for me.

Thanks!

If you're still w/o an answer to your sizing query, measure the sole of the boot. If under 11 3/4", it's a "small" shell. This would be a sizing from approx., a 5 or 6 to a size 9. If it's 11 3/4 " it's a medium shell. I can tell from the pic that it's definitely not a large shell.

 

The interior of these boots came with a variety of closed cell foam linings that were designed to accomodate various foot sizes. These linings could then be trimmed and/or custom modified to the idiosyncrasies of your feet.

 

On the back on the upper portion of the boot there will be a either an A or a B. This indicates what size the upper is. Big calves = a B, smaller calves = an A.

 

I trust this helps.

Put your hand in and feel the insole. Does it fully extend to each end? Then pull it out, compare to insoles of your own or the insole stand at your local drug store. Remember some of them might be trimmable. Now you've got the shoe size. Go online looking for a shoe to mondo conversion. Rip out the loner and see if you can find something on the liner that looks like it says that.

I wouldn't use those boots, by the way. Plastic is ancient. Who knows how they've been stored? Nice planters.

Hi,

Little late answer. I had a pair off these boots in the 80th . Best boot ever . I have tried lot off boots after this but never found anything like this. 

They are very narrow in with , I have Eur 42 (8)in size but I hade to have 43 (9). The inner shoe You could mold as You wish .

Then there was a lot off plastic pieces to put under the inner shoe to get the right fit too. 

But what I liked was the ease to change angle and flex. And I always where barefooted , so warm was the inner shoe.

The down side...Uggly as hell and the hard plastic broke easily around the buckle.

 

If Scott would would build these again in modern material I would by theme again.
