I recently got a job at a ski shop and have been working there for about three months now. Almost every time I work I get a "park" skier coming in and saying that their full tilts or salmon spks suck and that they don't fit and that they need a new pair of boots. When I ask them where they bought their boots from, they reply "online" 100% of the time. I can't stress enough that unless you know what you're talking about with boots, what your foot is like, and what your preference is, consult a boot fitter before buying. Most of the kids coming in say their boots are too small, but they have a 28.5 and actually have a size too big. Ski boots are all about personal preference, not buying the top of the line boot because the pros ski it. Be smart with spending your money on boots; it'll really pay off on the hill.
