Common Mistakes Made When Buying Boots

 

 

 

Snowboard boots should fit snug around the whole top of the foot and upper heel. Boots need several days of ridding to fully break in and form to there true size so you want a tight fit straight out of the box. 

 

5 Factors To Look For In Great Fitting Pair Of Boots:

 

1.  Toes should be grazing the end of the boot. We don't want you to crammed in there but just touching is perfect.

2.  Bending your knees you should feel your toes come off the end of the boot. This is how you know you have the right size.

3.  Your heel should be firmly held into the heel cup of the boot. You don't want your heel lifting up.

4.  A good way to check heel lift is to rock back and worth on your heels and toes.You should have minimum heel lift.

5.  Small pressure points are normal in a new pair of boots. However, we don't you to be in pain.
