Our goal is to find the best blend between comfort and performance, so you can ski how you want to ski without thinking about your feet!

Ski boot fitting is a process, and we need to get to know you, and your feet. We take the time to discuss and understand your skiing, analyse the biomechanics of your foot and lower leg, and have an honest conversation about what you want to get from your skiing.

It’s also important to have an understanding of your skiing history. How do you like to ski? How often do you want to ski? Have you had any past injuries, pains, discomfort? Where do you like to ski, and on what types of terrain? All this information is useful when considering your new boots.

Whether it’s your first pair of boots, you’ve never found a comfortable pair, or you’re a seasoned skier after high performance, our boot fitters are ready!

Ski Boot Fitting FAQ

An open mind and a positive attitude! Bring along your old boots and footbeds if you have them. We can use this information of what has and hasn’t worked to help our skier analysis. If you own skis bring them along too, we’ll have to double check your bindings are set correctly. And please, if you have ski socks, bring them with you!

We request that you wear either shorts, or pants to your appointment. You will be asked to take your socks off at the beginning of your appointment and our boot fitters will be touching your feet. Please be mindful of the condition of your toenails and the cleanliness of your foot, you don’t want to ski with long nails or any fungal infections, so please ensure your foot is just as hygienic for your appointment. We ask that you not wear leggings or skirts, as they make your appointment challenging for our boot fitters.

After a chat about your skiing history and ambitions, we’ll look at your biomechanics, measurements, and grab some boots to start. Expect to try on a recommended selection of 2-3 boots. Once we have decided on a winner, we get to customisation of the footbed and liner. 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 into the perfect boot, but in most cases allow at least 1-2 hours for a fitting session.

Ski boots feel like ski boots, and it can take 3-5 days skiing, for you to get used to your new boots and custom footbeds, and for the boots to get used to you! We will typically heat mold the liners as the last step of purchasing your new boots which can make the breaking in process easier. However, there is only so much we can do in store and you need to ski in your new boots for them to properly break in.
During this period, please, don’t stress if you have a little bit of discomfort - it’s completely normal to feel some discomfort in new ski boots, just like when you get a new pair of shoes. It’s important to give your feet time to get used to your new boots, and it’s important to remember; don’t push through the pain! If your feet hurt during the first few days of use, we highly recommend taking a break, and resetting your feet. We will discuss strategies to make this process easier during your boot fit appointment.

We don’t work on boots that are not originally purchased from aussieskier. You should always get your boots worked on where you purchased your boots.
If you have older boots purchased from aussieskier, please call or message us to book a boot modification appointment.
