Thread Starter 
I am looking for a list of companies that do custom race boot fitting. I will be able to go anywhere on the east coast. I'm looking for either the nordica dobermann or the Technica diablo if anyone has any numbers and addresses i would greatly appreciate it.
please respond quickly ive got until oct 16 to get all this stuff done.

I don't race so others in NE can probably help more.

I know this place only does racing stuff.

That listing that Scalce gave you is all you need. PJ Dewey is a former WC boot tech, there is no one better for race boots in the East. They sell all kinds of race equipment if you need to buy.

go ss PJ- but get an appointment via email (see their website)-- they don't answer the phone when busy (i.e. in the fall)


if you can, go on a weekday. Weekends are CRAZY this time of year-

plan on spending some time.

he is good. ok, he is very very good

For race stuff do not go to GMOL, you would have better luck at Race Stock Sports, Or Inner Boot works in Stowe

Snow Country, Rochester NY. David Cardillo works out of there. He does a great job. They also carry a full line of race stock equipment; boots and skis. It is the best race shop in western NY. www.snowcountrysports.com

I am a bit confused here. GMO was one of the first retail shops in the country to offer race room "plug" boots. We had them long before factory race centers were in vogue . We were even accused of not knowing what we were doing for selling plugs to consumers by many folks including some forum members that can only speak about "plug this or plug that" now a days. Just trying to clear some mud and state a fact.Thanks, G

I think you might be a little bias.

Well said Oldtimer. I have had nothing but positive dealings with Greg and his staff at GMOL. If you make derogatory comments: about a shop or company on this site, please do all the readers a favor, and explain why you have made them. GMOL has lots of race room equipment and are one of the recommended boot fitting shops on this Epic site. Keep up the good work at GMOL. Thanks for a professional reply Greg.

gmo

Service I got at from GMO was good and price was less then expected. They eve shoehorned (pun intended) in my son and I during a busy Super G camp week.

Looking for the width of this boot? Was it 95mm the entire length?

I try to respond to all e-mail but sometimes things slip through the cracks. Skied yesterday at Copper with PSIA demo team and Colorado Salomon on snow pro reps. A bit of an intimidating first outing. Death cookies and blue bird skies. Off to Loveland in the a.m. and then back on the road with the western leg of the Master Fit tour.

Greg is certainly one of the best bootfitters. He knows what he is doing.

Anybody remembers gmol's old website? It had a section dedicated entirely to race room boots. Not that the actual website doesn't have one, but the old website had reviews. Brief reviews but they were outstanding. that was the first time i read that the Dobermann WC lace-up liners are the best. It's good that Tecnica modeled their boot after the Dobermann .
post #23 of 28
Greg, i wanted to ask you this: is there any change we might see some reviews posted on your current website (reviews of plugs) like you had before? I trully feel that the "Plug Boot" section is missing them. You just see the pictures without a review... Just a few lines... b/c that can make a world of difference. Some of the plugs changed. I have the reviews for the X2 and Dobermann which did not change. But the others did change.

Actually there are many in New England that are as good if not better at race foot fitting than PJ. He is highly overrated IMHO.

Yeah he is but he is the still one of the best in the east and I would bring any pair of boots to him over PJ any day. You will get more personalized service, a better footbed and someone who has a real bootfitting expertise.

Are you shure about this!!! Are they really that good? I live in Europe and I can visit their factory in Austria and have a pair of boots made fearly easily. My brother has been using a pair of strolz for many years but the design hasent been very mindblowing and he has had a lot of trouble with all the mooving parts and stuff. They have allways fixed everything free of charge but then you have to visit their factory personally. I have been using a pair of Beast boots for 2 seasons now but I really miss my old Dynafit foam boots. Nothing beats a good foam boot.

Are you implying that PJ does not have bootfitting expertise? Explain.
