First day with new boots nrg 3 pro nordics. Love/things to fix

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

overall i love them just they feel flat i need a insole and a remold. But overall i feels the deference between owning and rental already. I haven't gotten them to fit me perfectly yet. I'm 5-7 135 pounds and a size 8 shoe. they gave me the 25.5 pair.

 

any suggestions guys on how to get them perfect by next season.

Some questions.  

 

Did they do a shell fit?

 

Do you have a knowledgeable boot fitter you're working with or is it just someone in a ski shop?

 

Your shoe size is mostly irrelevant since we don't know whether it's US, UK, or something else.  Shoe size is not how you determine the correct size for a ski boot.  They should have used a Brannock device to measure both feet and then verified it with a shell fit.  If all they did was ask your shoe size, I fear your boots are too big.  It's easy, for a bootfitter, to make a boot bigger, but it is impossible to make it smaller.

 

As for footbeds, you can buy heat moldable ones and do it yourself, but if you have any sort of foot problems you should get custom footbeds from a bootfitter.

Yes they used the brannock device thing and no they did not do a shell fit. I got them at ski barn.

Where did the longest part of your foot fall on the Brannock?

 

Go to the "Ask the Boot Guys" forum and read the wikis about fitting, then, with someone's help, check the shell fit yourself.
