Frequently Asked Questions
Why are ski boots so uncomfortable?
- Ski boots can be uncomfortable for various reasons, such as improper fit, pressure points, or lack of customization. It's essential to have properly fitted boots, considering factors like foot shape, width, and arch height. Additionally, discomfort may arise from not wearing suitable socks or not having custom footbeds.
What is a custom footbed?
- A custom footbed is a customized insole designed to provide better support and alignment for your feet inside ski boots. Unlike generic insoles, custom footbeds are molded to the unique shape of your feet, providing improved comfort, stability, and performance on the slopes.
What is the best brand of ski boots?
- The best brand of ski boots can vary based on personal preferences, foot shape, and skiing style. Some well-regarded brands in the industry include Atomic, Dynafit, Scarpa. It's crucial to try on different brands and models to find the one that fits your feet best.
How do I know my ski boot size?
- Ski boot sizes are typically expressed in mondopoint sizing (in centimeters). To determine your size, you can measure the length of your foot and match it to the corresponding mondopoint size on a sizing chart. However, it's crucial to try on boots, as sizing can vary between brands and models.
How tight should my ski boots be?
- Ski boots should be snug to provide proper support and control, but they shouldn't be excessively tight to the point of causing pain or restricting blood flow. A good fit ensures your foot is securely held in place, preventing movement inside the boot that can lead to discomfort and reduced performance.
How do you know if ski boots don't fit?
- Signs that ski boots don't fit properly include persistent pain, pressure points, numbness, cold feet, or difficulty controlling skis. If you experience any of these issues, it's essential to consult with a professional boot fitter to address the fit and make necessary adjustments.
Should you be able to lift your heel in ski boots?
- No, your heel should not lift in your ski boots. A proper fit ensures that your foot is securely held in place, and lifting heels could indicate an improper fit, leading to reduced control and discomfort.
Why do my toes go numb in ski boots?
- Numbness in toes can result from various factors, including tight boots, poor circulation, or pressure on nerves. It's crucial to address boot fit issues, such as width, volume, and pressure points, to prevent numbness. A professional boot fitter can help diagnose and alleviate these problems.
