Cking96000Thanks for your opinion. I'm sure they'll make some money back when I pay them 70 dollars to mount my bindings.
It still makes you a massive douche-lord.
Let's say you take an hour, maybe 2, out of a qualified boot-fitters day. They won't be the lowest paid person in the shop. They're probably also paying rent on the building, along with bills to keep it warm and light in the shop while you sit there wasting their fitter's time. Plus while you're sitting there thinking about the $50 you'll save buying your boots elsewhere, you're taking up time that a paying customer could be having boots fitted in.
But then you go and buy your boots online, only to find that after a day's skiing they're killing you on the "6th toe" spot, so you go to the shop and ask them to punch the boot out for you, only to find that custom boot modification is $50 each time if you didn't buy your boots from them.
So then you've paid $70 for a mount, $50 for some custom fitting, and you're still a douche-lord.
