Custom Boot Fitting
You can and should adjust the buckles on your boots for comfort, but for the best possible fit, come on in to The Ski Shoppe and have our trained boot fitters have a look. Our professionals understand the mechanics of the boot and how it should support your fit, and have the equipment and expertise to modify the boot if necessary to achieve the perfect fit.
The stock footbeds that come with new boots rarely match the shape or support needs of your feet. You can greatly improve your fit, comfort and performance with after-market footbeds. Our staff can prepare a custom footbed for you, molded to the unique shape of your foot, to provide ideal support and balance.
Cuff Alignment and Canting
The shape of the boot doesn't always match the shape of your leg. Our staff can check the alignment of the upper cuff to see if it is causing unnatural pressure points. We can also adjust the angling (canting) of the lower boot, where the sole makes contact with the binding. This adjusts the tilt of the entire boot to allow a more natural and comfortable stance and get your weight centered on the sweet spot of the ski.
If necessary, our staff can also alter the plastic shell of the boot itself to better accommodate the unique personal shape of your feet. This can be particularly helpful for people with wide feet, bone spurs, or other special foot physiology. We have the specialized tools on site to grind, plane, or heat and reshape the boot to your individualized needs.
