A few extra tips-

  • Make sure that the upper portion of the boot allows enough room for the size of your calf muscle. This is an area that can frequently become a source of irritation if you do not check it out ahead of time.
  • If you are in doubt about whether the boot fits correctly remove the liner from the plastic portion of the boot and stand in the liner by itself. If your toes are touching the end of the liner the boot is too small! Leave just a tiny bit of room at the end of your toes that they do not run into the end of the liner.
  • Insoles inside of your boot can be very helpful. Often a simple generic arch support or orthotic can go a long way to increasing your fit inside the boot.
  • Don’t be afraid to add an external heat source inside the boot. Often a simple toe warmer can go a long way in making your winter experience a great day. If you find that your toes are consistently cold buy a box of toe warmers, they’re easy to use and very inexpensive. You’ll be glad you did.
  • Enjoy yourself! If your feet are uncomfortable when you’re skiing,  you’ve got the wrong boot! Talk to a boot tech or come see me, we’ll get you straightened out!
