Hello there, I'm a new member here, an avid alpine skier, and an employee at Stratton Mountain.
To put my issue quite frankly, my feet hate me with a burning passion.
My foot size is about a Mens 14 4E, I have no arch, and a high instep.
On top of that, there are various orthotic problems.
So, to the point, skiing has always been a labor of love, and has always consisted of moderate to excruciating pain.
I'm sick and tired of suffering in my ski boots daily as I now spend my days on snow, teaching.
Hence why I've decided to bite the bullet and get a pair of entirely custom ski boots.
The question being: Which One?
Surefoot is out of the question as they are entirely unsuited to my feet, and I've heard nothing but bad things about them.
Salomon, Fischer, Atomic, and a few others have limited customizability.
I've heard good things about Strolz and Daleboot, and I'm looking pretty intently at those two.
Let's talk about them:
Well, Strolz is a foam injection liner while Daleboot is heat-molded.
They both offer boots for high performance which is a must or I'd already be cruising around in Apex.
They both have full customizability to accommodate my problem feet.
I can't really see any deciding factors, so I turn to you all for guidance.
Does anyone have experience with either company, or even better, both?
If so, I'd love to know your opinions as I weigh the options and make my choice.
