I just bought my husband a pair of Dolomite Rage X8 boots, along with a used demo pair of 172 cm Dynastar Legend 8000 skis. He's 6 foot, 165 lb, and pretty fit. We can return them, but they were a good price and I had read that Dolomite boots have a reasonably wide fit. I have custom fit boots (high instep, pronate), but DH was adamant that he doesn't want to spend a lot of money, since these days we are mainly skiing easy stuff with our kids. DH is a pretty good skier and skis black runs comfortably, but has always skied in rental skis and boots. We both took a break from skiing for about 8 years, but started again last year and will probably be skiing more now that we have friends with a house in Tahoe. He doesn't tend to pronate or have problems with foot pain. My husband has a moderately wide forefoot, although not wide enough to require wide shoes. I pulled the liners out so we could check the shell fit, and he can fit about two fingers behind and the instep and calf fit seem fine. The only thing that seems a bit off is that the liner seems to be a little narrow in the forefoot and is putting pressure on the side of the foot, and I'm not sure how much they will stretch. Any suggestions?
