We are reopening Ask the Boot Guys.  It was hoped that the automatic permissions would be completed, but it could be a month until we get that change completed from the development team.  Meanwhile, ski season is just around the corner and you may direct your boot related questions to the pros here today.

Please be aware of the posting rules below.  We will make an exception and allow replies to this thread if you have questions, suggestions or input.

 What Not to Ask in Ask the Boot Guys


Before you post a thread to the boot guys asking some variation of "Which Boot will work for me", or "can you suggest some brands", please stop. The boot guys cannot see your feet over the internet. The recommendation of a boot requires an evaluation of your foot shape, stance and other mysteries of the bootfitting art.


Read the bootfitting FAQ, and Boot Fitting Which Boot Will Work For Me.  Ask questions in the gear forum, but please try to keep questions in Ask The Boot Guys focused on specific problems, concerns and performance issues.
