Help me decide which ski boots to get

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I just ordered a pair of k2 press skis and I am now in need of boots. I've been skiing for a while but always used rentals for convenience. I'm trying to get in the park a little more and need the right boot for the job. Now the real problem is price. I only have $150. I know that's a super low budget. I also am not going to a boot fitter I just want to order them online. I know I seem lazy and cheap but I can't drive to a boot fitter. thanks for any help.

Do you even have any options with that budget?  Give us what you found so far, and we can at least pick the best out of all your bad choices for you.

 

Measure your foot.  the mondo is the centimeters measurement.  It you crossreference with your shoesize it maybe .5 to 1 size smaller than what you regularly wear.  Get that right, then the rest is just rolling the dice

You should look at lightly used. What size are you?

Where do you live ?

The local mt's and shop around here are having ski swaps, you can go there and there may be someone in the ski boot section that might be able to help you find the right boot.

FWIW I'm dropping off two pair of Tecnica boots this weekend at Okemo for the swap next weekend.

You might want to look into the ski clubs in your area, you can get discounts on lift tickets and other deals.
