BOOT FITTING KNOWLEDGE BASE

How many times should I get my boots fitted?

You should only need to get your boots fitted once, when you first purchase your new boots. Sometimes adjustments are needed after 2-3 ski days.

Bring your boots, obviously! And bring your favorite pair of ski socks. We recommend thinner merino wool socks for optimal comfort and warmth.

How should my boots fit my feet?

A good boot fit should start with your boot feeling a little too small. Your boots will only get roomier as you break them in. Also, a snugger fit will prevent your feet from moving in the boot as you ski. The less your feet bash around inside the boot the better they will feel at the end of the day.

Cuff alignment – did you know?  

We can change the angle of the upper cuff of your boot if needed.

What is the typical life span of a pair of ski boots?

Boots typically last 100-200 ski days. For some skiers that can mean just one season, and for some that can mean many years. Usually the liner of the boot will begin to pack out long before the shell shows serious wear, so some skiers will opt to replace their liners while continuing to use the same shell. It is also important to keep an eye on wear on the heels and toes of boots. If the plastic of the heel and toe becomes too worn from walking, they will no longer release properly from bindings. If you are unsure if your boots are too worn, stop by a Christy Sports location and chat with a bootfitter.

What is canting?

The term “canting” refers to the process of adjusting the angle by which the boot interfaces with the ski. Proper ski boot canting allows both your skis to be dead flat or just slightly pressured to the inside when you stand in a balanced and neutral position on the snow.

How should I store my ski boots?

Store your boots with the buckles latched.
