America's Best Bootfitters
You know you were drunk when you wake up and find a facebook video the next morning of yourself jumping into a bush, fucking up your ankle and rolling around on your driveway screaming "ahhhh my ankles are broke, I'm tanner motherfucking hall, my ankles are broke" ~auddie~
wait til you get kinks and corns and if you have wide feet or many injuries that leave one leg shorter than the other...
I just went to my first bootfitting last weekend and I am kicking myself for never doing this before.
Plus you can still get a boot online and then get it fit to you (which is my case, plus all the above).
Bob Skinners @ Sunapee was a good deal. $40 for boots that I didn't buy there and they will readjust for free if I come back in the next few weeks. Can't beat that.
haha maybe you are new to skiing. If you actually ski a boot hard then you really do need a good boot fit. Ski boots can really fuck with your feet, legs, back, etc if improperly fit. Also you have much more control with a really snug, well fit boot.
yeah going to a good boot fitter is one of the most important things you can do for your skiing. and every person you ask is going to tell you the place they go is best so you might just have to see what shops you like the best.
seriously though, I had no idea how much shit can and needs to be tweaked in your boot until I worked in a shop. From simple shims to custom shaping of plastic, there is a ridiculous amount of malleability in each boot and if you are skiing hard it is by far the best investment you can make.
