Our goal is to find the best blend between comfort and performance so your skiing can progress and you enjoy every moment on the slopes!
Ski boot fitting is both a science and an art which is why we take the time to understand your skiing, analyse the biomechanics of the lower leg and foot, and have an honest conversation about what you want to get from your skiing.
With our Sidas Feetbox 3D scanner we can get 9 different, incredibly accurate measurements as well map your pressure and weight distribution for the most in depth analysis possible.
It's also important to understand your history and how you like to ski. Have you had any past injuries, pains or problems? Where do you like to ski and on what terrain? How often do you ski?
Whether it’s your first pair of boots, you've never found a comfortable pair, or you’re a seasoned racer after high performance, our professional ski boot fitters are ready to listen and we're here to help.

Ski Boot Fitting FAQ
An open mind and a positive attitude! Bring along your ski socks and your custom footbeds if you have them. Any information of what has and hasn’t worked will help in our skier analysis. Also, if you own skis too you can bring those so we can double check your bindings are set correctly to your new ski boots. Finally, please wear shorts or pants that can be pulled up above your knees. Skinny jeans are a fashion trend that have not been appreciated by bootfitters!
After a chat about your skiing history and ambitions, we’ll look at the biomechanics, measurements and shape of your lower limb & scan you with our Sidas Feetbox 3D scanner.
Expect to try on a recommended selection of 2-3 boots and then customise the winner with a custom footbed and liner moulding. After this all that’s left to do is go skiing!
Every now and then a customer will come in with the 'Cinderella' foot that just glides in to the perfect boot, but in most cases allow at least 1, but up to 2 hours for a fitting session.
It can take up to 5 days skiing, sometimes longer, for you to get used to your new boots and custom footbeds, and also for them to get used to you.
The in-store process of buying new boots involves molding the liners which will accelerate the breaking in of your new boots. However there is only so much we can do in store, you need to go ski them!
During this period don’t stress if you have a little bit of discomfort - it’s completely normal. When you come in for your ski boot fit we’ll run through some strategies to help with any discomfort. For more information check out this blog article on skiing in new boots.
