Ability to make footbeds, grind, and blow out the boot are required. Thank you for any recommendations!
I can't tell you enough how much I recommend these two bootfitters:
1. Jim @ Sierra Ski and Snowboard (Sacramento, CA)
2. Bud Heishman, Snowind Sports (Reno, NV)
Jim has doen a TON of work to make me happy/fit my boots. It's unreal. He's doena fantastic job. I recommend him to anyone. SUPER high quality work, great selection, etc.
Bud fit my wife for boots. She has ridden with NO footpain at all for 10 days this season. That's testament to his work. They were brand new boots, bough from him too.
I'm a pretty demanding consumer, and like the best.
These two guys ARE the best.
