AttainArrayHow would the Atomics fair in the park. I have had my feet mesured and this is what the fitter offered. Unfortunately I don’t live anywhere near a shop that stocks park boots so can’t try them on. Just wondering what major differences between the flexes and boots that would work in the park. The heel hld is quality.
Profahoben_212Park boots are a scam. The boots that fit will perform best in the park.
chickenFor the majority of people, there will be multiple boots that will work for their feet. Other features in a boot and price point are all considerations that need to be made in addition to the fit. I hate when people say that fit is the only consideration. The hawx ultra and the head hammer may have similar fits (similar last), and both can probably be made to work with the same foot (I am not familiar with the hammer). I bet they ski differently though. If fit is everything then why do people run multiple pairs of boots?
Going to a good bootfitter is good advice, but saying that fit is the most important part of a boot is BS. A good bootfitter will sell you a boot that might take more work to get the fit right if they think it is going to ski better for you. A ski racer is not going to be in a 130 flex consumer boot just because they have a wider foot. They are going to get the race boot and work on it. Same thing applies to park rats, mogul skiers, big mountain guys or even your average weekend warrior.
