Buying Ski Boots.

You could say that. Very much decent and very much recommended, by many of the forum regulars.

See http://snowheads.com/ski-forum/viewtopic.php?t=116621

It will be costlier, it will take longer, bur you will be getting the right boots for your feet, from a man who is an expert in both ski boots and in feet.

Well worth it.

Go to Decathalon, you can use the boots and if you don't like them you have a year to take them back, yes, even after you have used them! Try getting that guarantee off a boot fitter.

That does sound like a good deal but a reputable boot fitter will have selected the correct boots for your feet in the first place and will happily do any fine tune that's required as the liners bed in.

can you ask decathlon for holidays refund as well? Proper fitting boots make your holidays much more enjoyable. I have no joy of taking boots that were cheaper and getting a refund on it.

wow, some more duff advice.

What's the point in buying something in the acceptance that it's very possibly the wrong thing just because you can take it back? Why not buy the right thing in the knowledge that you won't have to?

The 'usual suspects' now have a boot buyback scheme ( some say scam ) going on. Basically, buy a footbed, add a small insurance charge and if after all attempts of their staff to overcome discomfort, then you can ask them for the 'buyback offer' which is a high percentage of the boot price i believe.
I see quite a few customers take it up...Please nobody ask me for further details as i was completely not interested...

@Tim Heeney, sorry but that post is so utterly vague and lacking in substance that if you can't provide any more details people are going to assume you just made it up.

Boot fitters only fit boots they have in their shop to sell, lots of people have boots from boot fitters that don't fit, the point about Decathalon is that they take them back, boot fitters don't.
I don't understand this dangly bits about boot fitters why do you need somebody else to work out if your boots fit or not?

Because on your own you simply don't know what a boot that fits feels like. You might be lucky, but it then is down to luck. I may, as an experiment, go into to Decathlon and try and fit myself. I know what size I should be etc. No idea about boot anatomy to fit my foot shape though. Then who is going to make the footbeds, or do you just go for cut to fit? Same re the heating of the inner and sometimes even shell.

Hence why it's important to go to a boot fitter who stocks lots of boots. This is where I bought mine, the photo shows about half the rack. And they do each style in lots of sizes...

Then they went to a bad boot fitter didn't they.

Lots of people have been ill after going to a restaurant. It doesn't mean that you can always get better food by cooking it yourself, using ingredients that the supermarket lets you take back if you change your mind.
