Buying boots can be a daunting experience there are so many to choose from and we have to trust the sales person to pick the right one for us. People always ask me advice about which boot to buy and how to tell “if the sales person is picking the right boot for me”. My advice for people buying new boots is very simple, first and foremost “ if the sales person doesn’t ask you to take off your shoes and socks so that they can look at your foot – be concerned! “if the salesperson doesn’t look at your barefoot in the shell of the boot (without the boot liner)”- buyer be forewarned, they do not know how to fit boots!

The first step in boot fitting is to match a boot to the shape of your foot. All manufacturers and models are different. Some boots are wide, some are narrow, some boots have lots of volume, some have minimal volume, some have higher narrower cuffs and some have lower rounder cuffs. Sometimes it can even come down to the angle of forward lean in boots that can make your fit different. It is essential to see the barefoot in the shell before knowing what you need.

Let’s face it; ski boots are not made to flatter one’s foot! It is one of the reasons why it is worthwhile for people to come and get a free and honest consultation.
