Where to buy big ski boots?
Hey guys, I'm converting from snowboarding to skiing this year, and I'm trying to figure out my setup. I've got the skis and bindings down, but I'm having major trouble finding a pair of boots. I'm going to a shop to get fitted soon because I know that's whats most important, but I'm looking around and hardly anyone carries larger sized boots. I'm a size 13 so I know it'll be in the 31 range, but does anyone know where I should look to buy some, and what boots I should even be looking for? I'm basically all park and I know some such as Infernos, SPKs, and agents are what I should be looking for, but any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
I just picked up some dope salomon foils in 29.5 for only $120, barely used. You just gotta keep your eyes peeled for deals
You may want to get fitted before you decide what size you are. If you are basing it on your snowboard boots then it will probably be way off unless you were fitted correctly for them (which is highly unlikely). If you were fitted correctly for your snowboard boots expect to go down about 1 size. If you weren't fitted correctly for them and just bought based on what felt good, you will likely go down at least 2 sizes for ski boots. I have put people down as many as 4 sizes. From a size 12 snowboard boot to a 26.5 ski boot.

Right, I knew it was important to get fitted correctly, I never thought that it could vary that much though. The possibility of ending up as a 29 or so makes life a lot easier. Thanks guys
