EXTREME VITAL LAB – Individual Boot Fitting
Boot fitting is an excellent solution for sore and cold feet, or in general for an uncomfortable feeling when wearing ski shoes.
Ski shoes are along with the skis the most important piece of ski equipment. However, even for a pro skier, choosing the right ski shoes can be a nightmare. Every ski shoe brand (Salomon, Fischer, Atomic, Dalbello, Scarpa, Dynafit, …) and model has its own characteristics that fit more to one shape of the feet than the others.
Each pair of legs, even every foot, can differ and has its own anatomic features. Thus, to make the right decision nowadays demands more time, because the models have become more specific. This can be an advantage only if we choose the right shoes that fit our feet and needs.
