How To Buy Ski Boots Online

Skiers with narrow feet should begin their boot search by considering low-volume ski boots (often shortened to LV in the ski boot model name). A low-volume ski boot generally has a 98mm or lower last measurement.

While boots advertising low volume are a good place to start, skiers with narrow feet should also consider other measurements like instep height. This measurement gives you an idea of how much space you need from floor to ceiling in the midfoot of the ski boot. If your foot is narrow and your instep measurement is also small, you may need to size down in ski boots just to get a good fit through the midfoot.

You may be able to guess your correct ski boot size by measuring your own sole length or going off your last pair of boots, but there are so many other measurements and considerations that go into finding a boot with the perfect fit for your foot.

Before buying new ski boots, you not only need to know your sole length, but the width of your foot, the height of your instep, the shapeliness of your calf, and your ankle range of motion. These measurements are all key in finding a boot that not only fits your foot well, but a boot that will help you get the most out of your skis on the slopes.

There is a strange deception perpetuated by ski boot manufacturers that flex indexes of ski boots are measured on a uniform scale. Plain and simple, there is no consensus method for determining flex. The 120 flex of your old Atomic boots, for example, may not feel anything like the flex pattern of a new pair of 120 flex Tecnicas. Without getting your foot in the boot, there is no way to confidently make your purchase knowing the flex and performance of the ski boot has best been matched to your specific needs.

Not only do they have to be comfortable, they also have to have the right performance and features for the type of skiing that you like to do.

Believe it or not, there is a difference between men and women's ski boots, and it not just the fluffy liners! Women typically have lower and proportionally bigger calf muscles and ski boots are designed through the cuff and liners to accommodate for this. Men tend to have wider feet as well, so both men and women's boots are shaped appropriately for this.

As ski boots increase in size so does the last width of a ski boot. The increase is usually 2mm per size. This means if the stated last of a ski boot is 100mm in a 26.5, it will be 102mm in a 27.5, 104mm in a 28.5, etc. The same rule applies for women's ski boots. Boot fitters will try to select boots with a corresponding last width to the measured width of the foot.

Every boot fitter worth their salt will perform a shell size check. This involves removing the liner and asking the skier to insert their foot into the shell and move their toes to the end of the shell to touch with light pressure. By observing the space behind the heel they can get an idea of how the boot is going to fit for length. Using dowels as a guide, if the space available is 10mm or less this classified as a race fit. A performance fit is around 15mm space at the back of the heel, and a comfort fit is greater than 20mm at the back of the heel. If your purchasing boots online it's recommended
