I recently just picked up skiing (again). I was a skier when I was a bit younger and hadn't gone skiing for 5+ years. I went a couple times using my dads old boots (Lange) recently, which are too tight and narrow for me. My dads foot is the same size but mine is a bit narrower. I just bought a pair of Solomon boots which are much more comfortable.
My problem is, I was sized to be a 24.5, but couldn't find any. I bought the Solomon 25.5 because they fit nice and snug. I tried them out this past weekend and noticed my skis sliding too... I read your post and wondered if the boots are too big. Only when i "let my guard down" did my skis slide. So I'm thinking only time will tell if its technique (since I just started skiing again) or if its the boots.
What do you think?
