Tannerhalscousinsaid this like a dumbass. I am getting new boots, should I go to a boot fitter.
junior1derfulIMO I would never buy boots without a boot fitter. You can have all the nicest/most expensive gear but if your boots are uncomfortable or too big/small you will almost never have a good day. You could just buy some boots without one and might get lucky, but when you're paying a lot for ski boots I don't think it's worth the chance of getting poorly fitting boots. Boot fitter 100%
I also highly recommend getting footbeds with arch support. Personally, custom footbeds fixed all the problems i've ever had with ski boots. My feet/toes are warmer due to better circulation, I don't get toe/shin bang, and I barely have any heel lift in my boots. They were expensive ($200) but they are the best gear investment I've ever made. Comfortable and properly fitting ski boots = more fun skiing.
