This is getting out of control. I see at least one, usually about 3-4, threads called "what boots should I get?" or "which boots are the best for park?" or my all time favorite "my shins always hurt a ton what boots should I get to stop this?" The reason that their boots give them shin splints is probably because they bought "park" boots that they did not try on, or tried them on and thought that they were park boots, so it would be better to get those instead of getting the boots that fit. Also, if they went to a bootfitter, the guy would ask them what type of skiing they do, so they would probably end up with the right type of boot (not a race boot or something). But ya sorry for the little rant, it just pisses me off... a lot sometimes. Nomensteven's Ban All Boot Threads campaign is great, but they still keep popping up.
Anybody else a little pissed?
