Our range selection and buying process is an exhaustive one, taking many months of painstaking testing to assess ski boots for shape, features, design configuration, flex and range suitability. Our aim is to ensure we have boots that cover all ability levels and fit requirements from high arched feet to narrow low volume feet. We carry various PU foam liner options for people with difficult, narrow feet or those seeking the ultimate in precision and control.
A choice of several boots will be determined relative to foot shape, skiing performance level, future skiing goals and personal body type. Some time will be spent discussing the benefits and examining the fit feeling each boot provides.
Our range is comprehensive and combines a wide range of choices for all skiers. Alpine Race , Freestyle, All-mountain and Back-country ski boots are all part of our range.
Ski boot customisation
Since every foot is unique in shape, volume and flexibility we stretch the ski boot shells of about 80% of boots fitted. This ensures an excellent match of shell profile to the shape of your foot. These subtle adjustments are crucial to ensure a great fit while skiing as the foot is very sensitive and millimeter adjustments can mean the difference between comfort and pain. Our boot press applies huge loads from inside and outside the boot to create a much more effective and permanent stretch than conventional stretchers. It is the extra step we take to ensure your skiing comfort.
Custom Foam Injected Liners
Alternatively liner materials maybe adapted or bespoke foam liners utilised for a precision fit. Adjustments to liners can be made with addition or removal of materials to achieve maximum comfort and performance fitting.
Ski Boot Alignment
With the correct boot and insole we can now align the cuff (canting) to allow correct pressure distribution.
Ever wondered why your skis don’t run flat and true? Canting is often the key to solving this problem. Using our pressure mapping platform and canting evaluators we can assess whether you are predominately positive outside or inside edge. Our technology platform makes this normally very difficult process speedy and exceptionally accurate. From there we can make adjustments to the cuff of the boots to align lower leg with the ski boot.
Bearing in mind a majority of ‘alignment’ problems stem from over-tight muscles and muscle imbalance; this affects where your balance is under your feet and can account for faster than normal muscle fatigue and over-exertion to produce the required turn. Dominant muscles have a habit of pulling the joints and especially the hips and knees out of ideal alignment. The importance of having balanced muscle groups can not be stressed enough. A combination of strengthening and stretching will be given to help with tight or weak muscle groups. High heels and office jobs are too often the major offenders
