Importance of a Fitted Ski Boot

Published on February 20th, 2018

As every skier knows, the right boot makes all the difference in comfort, speed, agility, and more. When you are looking for new ski boots, make sure you are looking for fit, and always consider the socks you will be wearing on the slopes. Additionally, the lining of the boots will wear down, meaning that a boot that fits perfectly when you bought it, may be too large after a couple of days of skiing. A poorly fitted ski boot can lead to increased injury, extreme discomfort, and foot pain, particularly when you are on the slopes for hours at a time.

For those that ski often, specialized ski boot orthotics is a great way to improve performance and reduce fatigue, even if you don’t typically wear custom orthotics during the day.

Why Orthotics?

Ultimately, a professional fitter will be the best route to go for both your ski boots and ski boot orthotics. At Alpine Foot Specialists, we are able to professionally fit your ski boots and provide custom orthotics for your ski boots. Along with measuring your foot, we will know what to ask regarding your skiing habits, past boots you have used, and more.

It is important to note that custom orthotics you use during your everyday activities are not the boots to wear while skiing; we can fit you for ski boot orthotics instead! Ski insoles will provide shock absorption, evenly distribute your body weight, align your feet, ankles, knees, and hips, prevent bacteria growth, and keep your feet warm.
