SnowSun's steps to Boot fitting the perfect fit!
Analysis of customer's feet:
With each foot bare we look at the range of movement, the dorsal flex (pointy toes), the rise of the arch, and any lumps 'n bumps that might otherwise cause pressure, tingling or burning sensations. -The biomechanics of the foot.
Discussion of ski habits:
A brief chat about how you like to ski. -Warm drinks supplied!
Review of the ski boot range:
A run-through of the boots in stock highlighting aspects that accommodate your feet, your build, and accounting for your skiing ability.
It's all about the fit. -We use proven techniques to determine the fit is as close match to your feet as possible without any alteration / customisation. -Importantly taking as long as it takes trying various boots on either foot to whittle the selection down to an almost / exact perfect comfortable pair of boots. -Warm drink refill available.
To footbed or not to footbed... Is that a question?
Ok, a ski shop will undoubtedly attempt to sell a 'Foot orthoses' (Footbed) and for good reason. Although we may think our feet are perfect sadly however through skiing we will find out truth they are not. Skiing places great forces on our feet which can cause discomfort which removes the enjoyment of the sport can often results in the shortening of the day.
A footbed more specifically a custom has the following benefits:
- Balances your posture. -Aligning your stance on the skis aiding control.
- Fuller foot contact and support. -Distributes weight and pressure across the foot base increases comfort, endurance, and ski longevity.
- Your foot, your footbed. -Greater contact with the ski boot improving skier performance.
Customisation, final fit:
Ski boots today come with features that help customise the boot and make the fit that much better. Heat moulded liners, custom shell and stretch panels, however this hasn't always been the way and doesn't always solve all problems. -We've learnt a thing or two in the 30 plus years knowing various feet over that time and is why we always receive such high praise and recommendations from our customers.
Other considerations: Foam Liners
It's about performance rather than comfort. Foam liners go beyond the fit of the conventional packed liners grafting an exact cast of your foot. -Virtually all intention of movement is transferred to the skis. We can fit these upon request.
