BOOT ADJUSTMENTS

We are able to make adjustments to the boots to accommodate your foot shape and fitting needs.


Custom Footbeds

Everyone can benefit from putting footbeds (also called insoles) in their ski boots. Custom footbeds help stabilize your feet and control your movements, which helps reduce fatigue and improve your overall comfort and performance. Insoles also help prevent arch or navicular pain by limiting your foot’s ability to pronate into the inside wall of the boot.

BOOT FITTING KNOWLEDGE BASE

What should I bring with me to my boot fitting?

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.

Close


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.

Close


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.
