Ski Boots- reviews/opinions/general advice

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Hi,
I'm about to buy a new pair of ski boots. I'm in no particular rush as I'm done for this season, but I'm heading to Xscape this Thursday and as they have an Ellis Brigham I thought I'd have a look. I've never had an issue with comfort and have never really found even rental boots uncomfortable so that's not a priority. I'm looking for a good boot that's going to last, I'm only going to be doing two weeks next season, but will be working a season in 2018/19. I'm a good skier, comfortable on all piste, occasionally venture off piste and starting to attempt some park. I've looked at these four boots, would anyone recommend any of them or am I looking in completely the wrong place? Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Quick vote for salomon QXT boots, just done a season in mine and they are fabulous, light, comfortable and an all-around joy. Also thumbs up for Glide and Slide in Otley who supplied and in particular for Ali who fitted.

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

Gea RS is a touring boot.

@gabbooc, whilst the reviews will say boots are suitable for X, Y or Z the only thing that truly matters is fit, get measured, make sure they do a shell check and invest in some decent footbeds either off the shelf or custom made (depending on your foot)

if you are venturing into the park the only one on that list of 4 that i wouldn't touch is the scarpa, as a free tour boot the walk mode is not designed to tolerate repetitive hard landings if you are doing park stuff then a rigid spine (ie without walk mode) alpine boot is a better place to start

 Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

@gabbooc, buy what ever the recommended boot fitter tells you to get! Especially if you are doing a season.

@gabbooc, Get to a specialist boot fitter. www.Solutions4feet.co.uk in Bicester are pretty damngood and offer a very very good after sales service.
CEM who works there posts on here occasionally Very Happy (i.e. 3 posts above!) Be sure to book an appointment, there is little chance of getting a good fitting or advice by turning up on spec.
