So my questions are
1. Is $450 for Viron 10's a good price?
2. Is the Fischer viron 10's vaccum/Boot fitting technology any good?
3. Can you buy used boots and get them fitted or is it just new boots that can get fitted?
Read through the above article (WIKI) and pay close attention to the part about "Shell check" to decide on what size boot to purchase.
Boot fitting with and after the sale is a way to end up with boots that fit well and ski to your best ability as far as equipment plays into the mix.
We estimate that about 90% of the folks who have boots purchased them too large based upon how they "Feel" when they tried them on in the store. "If my toes touch anything,I am not buying that one" is where most of the problem arises. That is not to say that the boots should be overly tight but they won't feel like slippers
So far as the Viron 10 model is concerned, a little more info would be helpful:
How much do you weigh?
Is the Viron 10 from last season?
We sell the Fischer Vacuum series of boots and they work well.
I don't sell Fischer so can't comment on the boots, but agree with Mike's opening comments. Doesn't matter if the price is good. If you are buying from a shop that doesn't provide boot fitting any money spent there is thrown away unless you are a qualified fitter.
The last on the Viron 10 is listed as 103-108 which is to say mega-wide. Unless your foot is at least an "ee" or wider with a high instep this boot can't possibly fit and ski will. It is also very soft. If it fit well it would be perfect for slow skiing on green and very easy blue runs if you are fairly light.
So no fit guarantee, no fitting included in price. You pay additional for all work. You wrote for advise were advised the boot is very wide, I've never seen a size 12 fit a 27 and you are happy with your purchase. OK I guess.
I highlighted the interesting part of your post----So, what did your foot measure in centimeters?????
Did you do a shell check in that size boot to see if it would work for you long term,. Considering this purchase is a 5 to 10 year wear cycle, if the boot is the correct size----- and a poor decision, if it is too big, is why we have posted the WIKI about "Which boot will work for you"---- and will affect you adversely, if your foot moves around inside there at all.
Over time, this shoe size / foot size / boot size, thing has proven to be the biggest problem,--- almost 90% of skiers get it WRONG and suffer through the use of this TO big or too small boot for as long as they own it. So again, how long are your feet? in centimeters?
Very tight, is a relative term, What you feel is "very tight" might just feel "snug" to me. If you use the term "comfortable" in describing a boots fit, they will usually be too big to ski in with control for more than 2-3 days they then become a sloppy connection and the ski wonders around with you playing catch up all the way down the hill.
