Preparing my budget for purchasing new, custom boots

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hello again! As the heading suggests, I'm just trying to get a figure in mind of how much to expect to spend on custom boots.

 

I'm male, 22, about size 9 regular shoes. My boots are usually too loose, even after cramping my toes in and buckling the tightest it will go. So I was planning on getting a custom boot, get it fitted super well, probably some canting in the left boot as well.

 

Now I'm not looking to cheap out here, nor do I want to go all out. My goal is to spend whatever I need to to fix the issues I've had on every ski trip I've gone on.

 

In everyone's experience/expertise, could I get some help please? Thank you so much!

 

 

 

PS, if anyone knows the best place to sell boots. I bought a pair last year and won't be needing them since I now know I need custom boots. Thank you!

I don't really know what custom boots are and I have no way to determine a price tag.  What I try to do is fit boots carefully and properly and it isn't substantially more expensive than only buying boots.  By your definition I assume you mean that every punch or grind we add makes a boot custom and I guess it does but it means I must make a few thousand pair a year, so I don't define it as custom.  

 

It sounds to be by your description of buckling tightly that the stores you frequent are simply selling you boots that are too large.  Get that part right and the rest is not all that expensive.
