cobra_commanderKeep in mind that a good boot fitter is sizing more than just the length (and width) of the boot.
50KalPart of my problem. My usual Bootfitter is a race shop in Minnesota. They are great fitters on regular boots but they will be first to admit they know nothing about AT boots or carry them.
Recommendations for some good AT bootfitters in Colorado, Alaska, or Minnesota? That's where my time is mostly spent.
Might be driving down from Alaska this summer so if anyone has recommendations for PNW fitters that would be great as well.
50KalOne thing I have noticed is when it comes to trying on boots for AT, there is not a solid consensuses on sizing.
Some BF (bootfitters) i talk to say I need to size bigger than my regular boot cause they don't have the extra shell material to make modifications that traditional ski boots have. Some say freeride boots (rossi alltrack or Scarpa freedom) are fine to size normal because they are more traditional style boot. Some of the ski mo racers I've met say they size bigger because when you do cover alot of vert your feet swell a bit because of sweat and abuse.
