Do not expect a ski boot to feel like a regular pair of boots. You will experience different sensations if you are not familiar with how ski boots feel. Made of thick padding and a forward-lean hard plastic shell, ski boots are made for the sport at hand.
Over buckling the boots will cause circulation to slow and create discomfort. However, not buckling the boots snug enough may lead to sore shins.
Listen carefully as your ski technician walks you through the correct feelings of how a ski boots is designed to fit and function.
When you slide your foot into the first boot presented to you, the technician will ask you a series of questions to ensure that you are in the proper boot for your foot. Flex several times in your boots to allow your feet to fall in to position. If the first try does not succeed, we have back up pairs standing by for the correct fit. You too will be saved from the dreaded ski boot regret.
