try on like 50 different boots op. And ghen pick one that fits best. Crank the buckles down tight when trying them on to make sure they are snug and dont have any pressure points.
also make sure to try some nordicas. I dont know if its just a matching thing but nordicas to me are way comfier than any other boot.
Not this. While I can appreciate the enthusiasm in your post/thread creation, you should not be giving boot or boot-fitting advice. It's just wrong and it will further confuse him and prevent him from finding the correct boot for his needs. You may think you are helping, but in this case you really aren't.
OP - do not research boots, research boot-fitters in your area or where you will be skiing. Your goal is to find the boot that matches your foot shape, leg shape, is the proper flex for your weight/height/strength/ankle mobility, and budget. A real life boot-fitter is the person who will help do this, not someone on the internet who cannot see your foot. Do not listen to what works for other people- they do not have your foot. What works for one person could very well be the worst thing for you and vice-versa. Every brand makes great boots and every brand makes a wide variety of last widths (narrow, medium, wide, etc.) and it's all about finding the right match for YOU.
When you find the correct boot for your needs, it will ski groomers, park, powder, and wherever else you are skiing at the resort.
