When deciding to purchase a boot, there are many points to keep in mind to make a correct choice, we mention a few that we believe are fundamental. Knowing how to identify, based on your skills, the most suitable boot category for your foot and skills.
#1 Knowing how to identify, based on your skills, the most suitable boot category for your foot and skills.
It is useless and counterproductive to buy a boot FOR COMPETITIVE USE if you practice skiing at an amateur level …
#2 Identify, with the help of the appropriate numerators, the length and width of the foot.
In fact, according to our experience, the most common mistake is to buy a too large boot. The first sensation is in fact to touch on the toe, but it is due to the fact that the most padded part is the heel! The first check is done by closing the boot and flexing forward. In 90% of cases he will no longer feel squeezed or touched on the tip.
#3 Check, by testing it for at least 10 minutes, the fit and the presence of any pressure in particular points of the foot.
Always keep in mind that, regardless of always possible rectification interventions, a small pressure localized in one point of the foot during the test in the shop, could turn into severe pain on the snow, compromising the fun.
#4 Use a not very heavy sock.
On the market there are socks designed specifically for skiing with different thicknesses in different points of the foot. The use of heavy socks is unnecessary, given the construction materials of the boots.
#5 Try on both boots, remembering that our feet are almost never perfectly identical.
#6 Be accompanied by an expert seller in the purchase
Someone who can advise and identify the most appropriate model for your needs and explain, if any, the various mechanisms that make up the boot.
