Picking the Right Ski Boots
When you have a ski boot that's the right fit, your only focus is enjoying being outdoors doing a sport that you love. If your boots aren't the right fit, it's a point of focus that will distract you the entire time that you're out.
There are three main factors to consider when finding the perfect ski boots:
- Size: Ski boots are sized using mondo sizing. This sizing relies on the length of the inner sole of the boot in centimeters. If you've never purchased a ski boot before, it's smart to measure your feet in centimeters. This will give you an idea of your size in ski boots.
- Fit: Your ski boots should match your skiing style. Ask yourself, what type of skier am I? Am I cautious or confident? How fast do I like to go? What kind of terrain do I love to ski on the most? The answers to these questions will help you find the right boot.
- Flex: In addition to their mondo sizing, ski boots are given a flex rating. A boot's flex depends on how easy it is to bend it forward. Your boots' flex rating will show you how stiff or soft they are.
Having the right boots affects how you ski or ride your board. If they're too tight, your feet and toes will be extra sore every time you hit the slopes. If they're too loose, you risk a variety of injuries. Finding boots with the right fit is critical to having a safe, enjoyable time out on your skis or board.
