Cade2Alright alright. Go to a bootfitter bud
mystery3The rule of thumb around here is go to a bootfitter. It will provide you the best opportunity to get a well fitting boot which will provide years of pain free skiing enjoyment.
That said, if you want to "go it alone" and pick up some used boots and perform diy bootfitting by all means do so. If you have the time and interest in researching and modifying boots you *may* save money and have a well fitting boot. The first part of that journey is being able to research. The information you're after in this thread is likely widely available on the internets. You're going to need to be competent at researching and please do not post threads with broad easy to answer questions like this or complain about toe bang, shin bang, heel slippage, etc. in the future.
TheVictatorI sell boots at my local shop but I am no bootfitter because I cannot do shell work. I do my best to fit people with a snug boot that will not have too much room, but I’d like to know how to be a more effective bootfitter as people often say their foot is cramped when they size down half a size or something. Can you link me to some boot sizing and modding resources? I want to give my customers a real bootfitting experience.
