THEE_wizardI thank most of you for sound advice. I just need some boots I can ask about and other options that aren't park specific boots to look into so I can get a better idea of what is good. I am such a noob with boots and I want to do some research before going to a fitter, so again thank you for options and bootfitting advice.
Things to look for from the fitter.
He he should sit you down and get you to take your shoes AND socks off. This lets is really look at your feet and see any Potential problem areas.
He should ask what type of skiin you do and issue you have had in boots in the past.
He he will have you stand so he can look at your foots stability an overal shape as well as assessing your range of Movement.
he should measure you fully. This means measuring the width and length of the foot both seated and stood.
After measuring a good boot fitter will talk about your foots stability and recomend which type of footbed will give the best fit (this stage is really important, if they don't bring up footbeds try somewhere else)
they should then bring a selection of boots to shell check. The liner is removed and the shell compared to the foot. This is the most important check as a boot fitter an work put exactly what needs to be done just from doing this.
From on there they should make recommendations on which boots will work best.
Try the boots they suggest. Tey should feel too small. Stood with your leg straight your toes should be quite form I the front of the boot. Lean forward and your toes will slightly pull back. Don't worry if they still feel tight as shell work and footbeds will help this.
The foot should be held well with the foot buckles barly done up. The flex can be assessed but remember boots will feel about 15% stiffer when they are cold.
Once you find a boot you and the fitter are happy with you start the fittin process. If your interested in that let me know.
