Ski Boot Fitting at The Boot Lab

Our team of expert ski boot fitters spend hours testing & examining each model of ski boot we stock. We promise to provide you with the best ski boot for your needs, that will give you the most enjoyment possible during your ski holiday. We’re so confident our expertise, we’ll even guarantee your comfort, with our ski boot comfort guarantee!

Here’s what to expect when having your ski boots professionally fitted here at The Boot Lab – Snowtrax…

• Discussion – Tell us about your skiing ability, what type of piste runs you like to ski on and how fast & aggressively you ski. Talk to us about previous boots you’ve owned or rented. Highlight if you’ve had any problems in the past

• Foot Analysis – We’ll measure your feet & assess their shape. We can then use this information as a guide to begin recommending ski boots for you.

• Socks – Often forgotten, a technical ski sock will make a huge difference to the fit of your ski boots. Our boot fitters will discuss what type of socks you currently use and discuss potential alternatives.

• Boot Selection – We’ll select a few models of boot that suit your foot shape & ability, among other variables.

• Shell Check – This boot fitting technique acts as a guide to give us an idea of how snug the boot is going to fit. By removing the inner liner, we can check how your foot fits the outer rigid shell of the ski boot. This is very important to ensure you are in the correct sized boot.

• Trying On – Before putting the boots on there’s 2 things to be aware of. Firstly your toe will and indeed should, initially touch the end of the ski boot, it may even feel crunched up at the end, this is normal. As soon as the boot is on correctly and done up we'll ask you to flex forward into a ski position, this will change your foots position as it is pulled back into the heel cup. This will drastically improve the feel of the ski boots. Secondly, a NEW ski boot should feel snug. Ski boot liners "bed-in" over the first few days of skiing; the liners pad down so it’s important the boot feels snug initially, they will loosen up with use.

• Insole – After narrowing down your selection of boots we’ll discuss various options of supportive insole. This is essential for nearly all types of foot shape and will ensure that comfort is guaranteed. We offer a great range of ski boot footbeds. They're usually either pre shaped for a great out the box feel or a fully customised footbed, that is completely tailored to your feet only.

• Customisation – We’ll heat up your boots & customise them to your feet. This is the ultimate in boot fitting & ensures a precise, comfy fit.
