My wife is 5'5" (163cm) tall and only 105lbs. I am try to get her a HEAD 2007 Monster M72 (156cm) for her. Am I crazy?
She is never skiing before. So, she is pretty entry level.
I understand that.
What I am saying is :
Take your current boot budget, whatever it is, and add the ski money to it.
So your new boot budget = old boot budget + $LiteThang.
Do _not_ buy skis before she skis her first time no matter how good the deal is.
She will be happier in the long run, and a better skier faster.
