Recommendations for Women's Boots

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey all.....looking for some buyers advice here. My 5 year old Dolomite Sintesi 7.5's are starting to pack out, and will need to be replaced soon.

I'm a pretty aggressive skier who skis on Volkl 724 Pros out west and on 6*'s back east....

Does anyone have any recommendations for good women's boots? I have average width size 7 feet but quite narrow heels and ankles, so heel lift can be a problem for me.

Any sage advice? Much appreciated!

See a good boot fitter, get boots that fit. That's about as sage as I can get. Atomics might work well for you and also langes junior or woman's depending on how wide your forefoot is. Both of them are quite narrow in the back.

Don't know your height, how high you arch is.... If you have a low calf muscle watch for boots coming up too high and pushing you forward.

Tough thing to do over the internet especially with very little info.

Both my Mom and my girlfriend are skiing in the Tecnica Diablo Flame Ladies boot, and they both love it. They tried them on at different shops a month apart and they both liked that boot the best. They have average width feet with small heels, one is a size 6, the other a size 8. And both of them are moderatly agressive skiers, I have seen a vast improvement in my girlfriends skiing.

Thanks Kosackthrower (interesting name), I will try those Diablos.

....and I know it's a hard thing to do over the internet, but I'm 5'5", 130 lbs, I don't have low calves, high arches or anything else out of the ordinary that I know of, but who knows, a good bootfitter may tell me otherwise.

I'm just seeing what the ladies in your life like to ski on to get some recommendations. We're going to Utah in a week and I see that the Canyon Sports in Ogden (where we're staying) has an outlet so I thought that might be a good place to look.
