The Perfect Fitting Proces

Boot Fitting and Custom Orthotics1. Scan Your Foot
We start with the foundation: your feet .Your bootfitter will place your foot in a near-neutral stance, which is its strongest natural position. Using pressure-sensitive rubber pegs, your foot will be measured by a computer in 538 places. This produces a three-dimensional topographical "map" of the bottom of your foot. Data from this map is then fed electronically to an Orthotic fabrication machine.

2. Assess Your Needs
After scanning your foot, your boot fitter will do a more thorough assessment. Factors such as your skiing ability, preferences, foot characteristics, and future skiing goals are considered. He/She will use this information, along with your computer-generated measurements, to select the best boot for you.

3. Fabricate Orthotics
Using your personal three-dimensional measurements, orthotics are milled out of raw Ethyl Vinyl Acetate blanks on a three-axis CAD/CAM milling machine. This is done on-site in about 20 minutes. The orthotic is covered with a leather~like fabric and trimmed to match your boot and/or shoe size.

4. Custom Liners
Your custom orthotic is paired with an Intuition custom boot liner. The Liners are heated in a convection oven, then custom molded to your foot. In about 10 minutes, you will have warm and comfortable ski boot liner that will conform to every nuance of your foot.

5. Optional Ski Boot Heaters
lf you suffer from cold feet, boot heaters from Hotronics are the answer. Your boot fitter can custom install boot heaters into your ski boots. Powered by rechargeable batteries, Hotronics provide all-day comfort even on the coldest days.s

 

Things to consider when buying ski boots:

Custom Orthotics1. Don't listen to your friends.
What works for your buddy may not work for you. They're your feet, not your buddies, and every foot is different. Different boots will fit different foot shapes.

2. Have your feet measured.
This accomplishes several things, like knowing how big your feet are. We measure your feet both sitting (unweighted) and standing (weighted). This tells us how much your feet elongate and if your are an over-pronator. Over-pronation in a ski boot is a bad thing.

3. Get a footbed.
Even skiers with perfect feet will get improved performance and comfort with a footbed. If your feet are less than perfect, like the majority of the population, you will reap even larger improvements in comfort and performance. The soles of our feet are not a flat surface, and the sole of a ski boot is a very flat surface. A good footbed allows the two to interface, while maximizing comfort, balance and power.

4. Get Shell Fit.
Remove the liner from the boot shell, then put your foot into the shell so that your toes barely touch the end of the boot. Anywhere from 1 to 3 cm behind your heel is a good guide. Generally, the more time you spend in ski boots the less space behind the heel. This is where the guidance of a good boot fitter, like us, is very helpful.

5. Try on several different boots.
Even if the first one feels great, try on a few more. The first one may be the one for you, but at least you will have something to compare against.

6. Take your time.
A proper boot fitting can take a while, particularly if you are getting custom work done. This is time well spent.

7. Buy your boots at Grizzly Outfitters Ski and Backcountry Sports.
We will guide you through this process and guarantee the final fit of your ski boots. We will measure your feet, determine which footbed is right for you, and match your foot to the right ski boot. We will also take the time to customize your boots to your feet. This can include custom footbeds, custom ski boot liners, boot stretching and grinding.
