onenerdykidNormally, the cost associated with fitting a boot is free/very cheap when you buy the boot from the shop. It is typically one of the services they provide in order to keep you from buying online. Every shop has their own specific policy, but they typically have one.
Word I'll look into it. Maybe I can get some sort of deal from one of the local shops our park is partnered up with.
Why does ski gear have to be so complicated. I buy snowboard boots and if they're good they're good. Comfy to ride, walk and work in.
When I was younger ski boots were pretty much, "it's in your size and it's cheap, fucking deal with it".
I didn't ski at all last winter but I can see myself going out a decent amount this winter. Maybe I'll pull the trigger and get something nice.
Hope I wasn't coming across as the guy the asks for advice and then disregards every helpful post. It's just hard justifying the $$$. Like I said, I got really good shape public enemies with binders for $32. That got me back into skiing. Then I ran out of boots to break and broke my head anyway and stopped for a bit.
Although from the posts in here I probably will just do it.
Some of my favorite things were going out there and noticeable improving every day on my skis. Getting a nice sway back in my turns. Still would fuck up here and there and forget what I was doing but it was nice.
Even if I never get good at skiing again, itd be nice to switch it up here and there, make a fool of myself to the kids in the park, and have a good time.
