I am new to this forum. I have not skied for about 10 years but have now decided to take it up again. I would guess I am an advanced beginner. I can parallel turn and do short swings etc. Can't recall how comfortable on black runs I was and have only been off piste once!
Anyway I am a UK size 11 I think that equates to a US 12. I do not have access to a boot fitter which seems to be the most appropriate course of action. I need to buy a pair off the shelf really. I have been on a couple of dry slopes with exactly the same problem I had when I first skied. I have very wide feet! I measured them and across the widest part of the forefoot they are 125mm.
Can anyone recommend a boot which is either this wide or the widest boot on the market so that it requires the least expanding to make it fit. To give you some measure have used the widest pair of hire boots I could only keep them on for about 5 mins before the pain became too much.
Any recommendations regarding off the shelf models would be appreciated. I have tried looking on several manufactures websites but they do not always have such info and they all seem to be about 105mm.
