Hope I can get some advice - i've done a week of skiing (with private lessons), in rented boots.
I've got a problem with severe over-pronation when I run, and it also made skiing in the rented boots a real pain.
Going skiing again and have decided to commit to some of my own boots, as I really enjoyed it - but don't enjoy being in pain!!
Been to snow+rock for a fitting, and explained my VERY limited experience. I am a beginner, and i'm not very confident.
They fitted me into Atomic Hawx 90W with custom insoles. The insoles I purchased, as they're a bargain for feet as bad as mine, but I wasn't convinced on the boot. I thought I was far too inexperienced to be in a 90 flex boot? Have I misunderstood how the rating works?
I didn't want to question the guys knowledge - as he was fab, and really helpful... but I wonder if he was too ambitious with his choice? I really don't want to destroy my confidence in a boot that's too much for me.
Be interested to hear opinions on the boot if any one wears them - and if there are any fitters, whether they think it would be a good choice for me.
