Yeah so true.
Get a boot that fits the best man, if it is to big your going to get bad shin bang and sore feet. Since your still growing I'm guessing you live with your parents still and I think they would pay for the boots or at least some of it. Trust me don't get a big boot my parents thought they could save money, but I was so uncomfortable they had to buy another pair in the same season. So jokes on them.
wow, you really just suggested he buy boots a size big? you do know when you heat mold a liner, it expands, not shrinks right?
OP dont listen to this guy, he is fucking retarded and doesn't seem to know anything about ski boots. This is what you do:
1. go to local ski shop
2. go to boot section, tell them how much money you have
3. try and all the boots in that price range
4. buy boot that fits you well and you can flex
5. enjoy skiing in good fitting boots
you will grow out of boots, its a fact of life, but that doesnt mean you have to sell them each year. a shop is able to grind and punch out parts of a boot to make them fit. i rode the same pair of 3.5 sizes to small race boots for 2 years, just got them ground out quite a bit and they worked.
Also, dont say "im gonna get full tilts next year" because who knows if they will fit you, dont be some trend whore faggot pice of shit and buy what will actually work for you. If FTs fit you, great get them, they are fantastic boots. If an atomic boots fits best, get that one, same with salomon, nordica, lange, ect ect ect.
Remember when skiing was about the skiing and not the money? Thanks for ruining that people.
