How it works
The first step in the boot fitting process is a chat with your Snow+Rock boot fit technician about your needs. This will include your current skiing ability level (honesty is key!), what kinds of skiing you plan to be doing, and any past injuries which may affect you on the slopes. Next, detailed measurements will be taken of your feet, including forefoot width, instep height and heel and ankle width, to get an accurate picture of which boots will be best for your foot shape.
It’s always best to wear technical ski socks to your fitting; if you don’t currently have any, you’ll be assisted in choosing a pair from Snow+Rock’s extensive range. Once you’re in the right socks, and your technician has selected the best boot for you, they will perform a shell check. This is done without the boot’s inner lining to make sure your foot has enough space in four key areas: length, width, volume and the ankle cavity. If the boot passes the shell check, it’s time to try it on with the inner lining.
Remember that initially, ski boots will probably feel tight and uncomfortable. They’re intended to be stiff to provide the best support for skiing, so they won’t feel anything like your normal shoes. Being honest with your boot fitter will let them judge whether the boots are a good fit!
