So i live in Houston TX and was very unimpressed with the one chain store we have, sun and ski sports. So i decided to look up on the Americas best bootfitters and find the nearest certified shop. The nearest shop is in Frisco, TX which is right north of Dallas. Its a small shop on main street in the town. Its what you would expect a ski shop to look like. Gil Murray is the bootfitter there and if you go to the site, skifriscosports.com, you can read about him and his years of industry experience. He was fantastic and spent an hour and half getting the right fit and boot for me. We got down to the two best boots before he finally revealed the price. The one i like was 200 more than the 2nd place boot. He asked me is the other one 200 dollars better and i said no and he agreed that it better be a hell of a lot better for 200 bucks. It was pretty much everything you could ask for, knowledge, custom fitting, semi custom soles, and NO pressure to buy a more expensive boot. He just wants you to get the right fit. So if you ever happen to be in Dallas TX take a drive up to Frisco and go see the guys and their shop.
