Shell Fit Question

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
After reading the boots too big thread on the general discussion forum I have a conceptual question. The front of the shell of a ski boot is rounded as opposed to comparing the bottom to the side of a box (90 degree angle).

When I touch my toe to the front of a boot for the purposes of evaluating shell fit should I stop when I feel the front begin to "round up" rather than pushing past the curve to contact the toes against the front wall ?

Thanks and given the hour of the day, Cheers !

I would stop when you feel the shell "rounding up"

Which everway you chose ( i ask my clients to elevate the foot to the position it will be in with the liner and footbed, so ask thm to raise the toe/forefoot 5mm or so) always do it the same, sock on, sock off or foot flat or foot elevated. The idea is to build a mental referance so no way is right or wrong, so long as it's always the same.
