aussieskier Ski Boot Fitting FAQs
  1. What do I bring to my appointment?
    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!

  2. How do I prepare for my appointment?
    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.

  3. What can I expect about the process?
    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.

  4. What can I expect during my first days in new boots?
    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.

  5. Can I Bring my old boots to get modified or worked on?
    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.

  6. Where can I park?
    Our Aberdeen Rd showroom in Prahran has ample 1 hour street parking. The parking on Williams Rd is also unlimited, just avoid the clearway!
