New boots

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Should I spend hours/days/weeks wearing my new boots around the house to "brake them in" or should I just leave them until I go sking? :

A proper fitting at the store should allow you to go skiing right away without having to break them in and without any discomfort.

I was dreading the new-boot pain, but I had the best (for sure in this region, probably in the world) fitters do the work, and after that initial hour, I have had to do nothing.

I normally recommend that people wear their boots around the house a few times before going skiing.
The two main reasons are:
1. To get their feet used to being in boots.
2. To make sure there aren't any niggles/pains that they didn't notice when in the shop.

The problem with wearing your boots around the house is you are not in the same position/movements as when you are skiing so the liners if they do get some forming will not be proper. Get to a good fitter and work with them. The other option is to put some skis done on the carpet and step in. then work your boots like you were skiing. (with poles for balance in front of the TV?)

Walking, sitting, whatever will only point out the problem with that boot for when you are walking and sitting..

Just my opinion...
