my 10yo Salomons shattered after getting off the slope the other day.
I had a custom orthotic in them which I inadvertently tossed as well.
I'll probably have another made as they helped my flat feets alot.
Dunno what my local emporium will have, but I'm looking for ideas.
It was my first ski in a decade as well. I'm an intermediate plus. My form is not great but I'm comfortable and confident on blue trails.
I've no interest in bumps or cliff diving.
I'm 6', 200 lbs, late 50s. US 14 aka mondo 32.
The Salomons were mid entry, but the boots I rented to replace them were a 4 buckle modern front entry Head of some kind.
They were fine, but I did miss the orthotics. I had better control with them in.
I ski on 170s or so. If I continue to get a week of skiing in a year, I'd be very happy.
I hated opening and getting into the new boots, the Salos were way easier, but I'll get use to the concept.
Any thoughts are welcome.
