For the best ski boot fitters in Melbourne, Aussieskier is your best bet! Our qualified and experienced professional boot fitters have all the knowledge to ensure you get the very best ski boot fit for your skiing.

From humble beginnings in Montebelluna in Italy, to the modern-day offerings with all their comfort and technological advances, ski boots have come a long way since the original leather ski boots. Bob Lange created the first plastic ski boot in 1962. Since then, there have been numerous changes to ski boot design as our needs have progressed and skiing styles have evolved.
Modern ski boot construction takes advantage of developments in materials over the past 50 years to create stronger yet lighter ski boots, with more comfortable and mouldable liners. The ability to modify, adjust and alter ski boots has resulted in boot fitters being able to create custom fits for every skier. Brands like Atomic, Salomon, Tecnica and Nordica all have technologies that allow for significant customisation of their boots. Custom ski boots give the user the chance to have a high level of comfort without sacrificing performance.
Another way to increase the comfort of ski boots is to use an aftermarket arch support. At Aussieskier, we offer both the option of Pre-fabricated Insoles that replace the sock liner inside of a ski boot, or for a more customised option, we use the Sidas range of Custom Footbeds that are moulded to your foot and help to distribute pressure more evenly and transfer power into the ski more efficiently. Nowadays there is a range of other fitting solutions to help alleviate sore spots and give you comfortable ski boots. You can even use heated socks or heated custom footbeds if you suffer from cold feet whilst skiing.
Using proper, thin ski socks made from natural and technical fibres are essential for warm feet and comfort whilst skiing. We all ski in ski socks from Le Bent as we've found their blend of wool and bamboo give a warm, soft and itch-free sock that doesn't get smelly!
We have carefully curated our ski boot selection here at Aussieskier. Lots of choice in both Men’s and Women's ski boots, Alpine Touring Boots, classic Performance Ski boots, Freeride Ski boots. We have the range and skills to get the right ski boots on your feet for a happy holiday.
