onenerdykidThere's an entire stickied thread at the top of the page so you don't have to search :)
1. Take out the liner and do a shell fit- step into the shell with a thin ski sock, slide your foot to the front of the shell so your toes just barely touch, and measure the space behind your heel. 1cm (1 finger) = high performance fit, 2cm (1.5 fingers) = normal fit, 3cm (2+ fingers) = too big.
2. Do you have footbeds?
3. Are your liners heat molded?
JakeInnesThank you but I'm wondering if anyone knows of a certain boot to fit someone without big ankles not necessarily how to fit boots. yes i have footbeds and my boots are heat molded.
onenerdykidI asked those questions because I needed to know you are in the right size and your foot is held in place properly.
Now that I know that, there are plenty of lower-volume options on the market and every brand has them. Almost any 98mm boot from any other company will produce a snugger fit. Which one is right for you? Honestly, only a boot-fitter can make that call since only he/she can see your foot and how it interacts with the contours of the shell.
If anyone suggests a boot that they like, it most likely won't be good for you since they don't have your foot. Take their recommendations with a grain of salt. Go to your local boot-fitter and find out what will work for you and you will be a lot happier than listening to people spout random boot ideas to you.
