OUR SKI BOOT FITTING LABS


Your ski boots are an investment - the foundation of your setup that will be with you on the slopes for years to come. So why settle for boots that don't fit properly?

 

Our in-store boot fitting labs are designed to custom fit your ski boots, so you leave with a pair made to fit you and only you. Here's how it works.

The Boot Fitting Process

Step 1

 

Your boot fit techician will assess your feet to create a 3D foot profile and identify the most suitable boots for you. We'll ask about your needs, and look at the mobility and flexibility in your foot, ankle and calf by assessing these three aspects:

  • Width: looking at how wide your foot spreads across the forefoot when standing
  • Volume: the height of the instep and the arch of your foot
  • Heel and Achilles: the width of the heel, the Achilles and the width of your ankle bone

We then want to know about your fitness and the sports you do, and any injuries which affect you on the slopes, before we assess your gait. This is basically how your foot moves, or pronates: all feet supinate (roll outwards) or overpronate (roll inwards) to some extent to absorb shock, but keeping your feet as neutral as possible will help with balance and motion control and help to reduce your risk of injury.

STEP 2

 

Your technician will then help you choose the right technical socks for ultimate comfort and temperature control, and find you ski boots to try that suit your anatomical foot shape, ability and aims.

STEP 3

 

Once you’ve found the right ski boot, your technician will advise on the right insole or footbed for ultimate comfort and performance.

STEP 4

 

If custom insole are right for you (and we always recommend them), we make them using the process below to neutralise your posture and align your lower limbs. We add a stabilising block or tabs too, for more stability.

STEP 5

 

We'll make the final adjustments to your boots to get rid of any spots of discomfort, by stretching the shell and adding or removing foam to the liner.

STEP 6

 

Get your new boots out there.

 

The boots will take a few days to get to their optimal comfort level. if you have any problems within 14 days of skiing, you can bring them back into store and we'll re-adjust them free of charge under our Ski Boot Comfort Guarantee.

Making Your Custom Footbeds

We create custom footbeds using the SIDAS Custom Moulding System.

STEP 1

 

Once your foot has been analysed, your boot fit technician will get you to stand on two silicon pillows to take an imprint of your foot.

STEP 2

 

The footbeds, having been warmed in an oven, will then be put into the moulds ready to be shaped to your feet.

STEP 3

 

Once cooled, and if needed, a stabiliser will be added to make sure your foot stays in the right position.

STEP 4

 

The entire footbed is now shaped to fit your ski boots.
