traditional overlap vs 3-piece shell

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I've been skiing in  in Head World Cup boots with Zipfit liners for a long time, 8yrs. Last season I put a 4mm shim under my toe piece to change my stance. My skis are Icelantic Shamans that have a serious amount of sidecut. I really liked how everything felt more upright and balanced fore and aft. Before it felt old school with a lot of pressure on the tips. That made me think it is time to get new boots to work with the new style side cuts and flex patterns. I ski mostly off piste at Mammoth Mtn. After 40 years of over lap 4 buckle boot how is a 3 piece boot going to feel in comparison? I have high volume feet and a EE width according to the guys at Footloose Sports. I saw that Head has a new boot out called the Hammer that might work for me according the volume measurements on their website. I'm partial to the Head boots after so many years of comfort. I know I have to try different boots for fit. It's like eating steak for years and now I have to eat fish. What's it going to taste like?

Corty and his crew at Footloose are real good. They know your feet and they have seen your feet. Trust them.
