What boots should I consider?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

My foot is medium width with a low instep and narrow heal. I'm looking for a high performance all mountain boot. Not a race boot. My everyday ski is a Nordica Hell & Back.

What do you see as the difference between a race or an all-mountain boot?

Hi Lou,

Race boots are generally stiffer than all-mountain boots. Although I know each comes in varying flex ranges.

You would probably have a hard time finding a boot to fit your feet that was not a race boot, but then I can't see your feet from here and who am I to say what would fit.

 

You might consider looking through this boot test data to find something that would/might work: http://www.bootfitters.com/reviews

You are right, boots are boots and they come in varying flexes.  Most boots called all-mountain are race boots in different graphics.  Find the boot that fits regardless of its label then chose the appropriate flex.
