Good to hear from you. Thanks for your work on my boots. Hopefully, you won't be seeing me this season.
I also got my boots from Rick Barton at Vertical Drop. It's quite the drive (at least a full hour one way) from Chicago. I have gone back probably about 4 times for adjustments and have received excellent service. I'm very pleased with how my boots fit. They do have an very good boot fit guarantee. Call the shop for details or PM Rick.
If your friend is in Chicago and doesn't want to drive a long way Viking is probably going to be his best option. I don't have much experience with their bootfitters but they probably have a couple that are pretty good. If you do an Epicski search on Viking ski shop you may find a previous thread that gives a specific name or two.
