Hi I'm Ingrid Backstrom, evo ski ambassador, and we're here today to talk about how to choose ski boots. Ski boots might not get the same attention as skis, but choosing the right ski boots is arguably the most important part of your setup. It's the transfer of energy between your body and your skis, so a good pair of ski boots will vastly improve your comfort and ability to control your skis. If you're just picking one place to invest a little extra, boots are a great place to start. Finding the correct size, fit, and flex are the primary factors to consider when shopping for ski boots, and understanding these factors will help you pick out the ski boots that are right for you. Choosing the best ski boot for you starts with the size and fit to ensure you get the right ski boots for your feet. It's a good idea to get a ski boot fit from your local shop like evo. Ski boots use mondo point sizing which is the actual interior length of the boot in centimeters. A ski boot that is size 26.5 for example means that the boot is ideal for feet that are 26.5 centimeters in length. How does monopoint sizing compare to your regular shoe size? Well, a ski boot should fit a lot more snug than a regular sneaker. Check out the ski boot size chart link in the description to convert between the two. Also, ski boots don't come in half sizes most brands use the exact same boot shell for both full and half sizes. So that means boots stickered as 26 and 26.5 are usually identical. How should a ski boot fit? With your foot in the boot, you're looking for light contact with the toes and a solid heel hold when buckled down and flexing forward. When buckling ski boots, start with the buckle just above your ankle usually the second buckle from the top then work your way up to get a snug fit around your calf and shin, then finish by buckling the bottom buckles over your instep and toes. I do the power strap last, this will ensure that your skis react to your energy inputs. Ski boots also come in a wide range of widths called a boot last. The ski boot last is measured in millimeters and is a measure of the interior width of the boot across the metatarsals, usually the widest part of your foot. On this boot for example the last is 100 millimeters. If you have narrower feet or want a tighter more performance fit, consider boots under 100 millimeters in last. If your feet are wider or you prefer a more relaxed fit, consider boots that are 100 millimeters or wider. How tight should ski boots be? Just remember new ski boots will only get looser and more packed out as you ski them, so starting with a very snug fit is preferred - a loose boot is not a comfortable boot in fact it can cause you a lot of pain and discomfort the way. A ski boot's flex has a big impact on how your ski responds. So finding the correct flex for you is very important. Choosing the correct ski boot flex is largely determined by your weight and ability level. The heavier and more skilled you are, the stiffer the boot should be. Ski boot flex is determined by a number rating ranging from about 60 on the low end to 130 or more on the high end. Generally speaking, boots in the 60 to 100 range are best suited for beginner to intermediate men. For beginner to intermediate women look for boots in the 50 to 80 range. For advanced to expert women look for boots in the 80 to 110 range, while advanced to expert men can look for boots in the 100 to 130 range. Now that you're equipped with this knowledge, you can choose ski boots that are right for you and get out shredding. Remember, an in-person ski boot fit is the absolute best way to get dialed with the right pair. Ski boots have a lot of customization potential that can only be accomplished by a professional boot fitter. If you still need help, our ski experts love talking about gear.
