TRYING ON SKI BOOTS IS ALSO ESSENTIAL
• Wear the socks you use for skiing.
• Put the boots on and close the hooks to their half-way position. If you go any further, it means that the volume of the boot isn’t suitable for you.
• Stand upright - you should just touch the end of the shell
Attention: if your toes do not touch the end of the boot, you need to take a size below!
• Perform 3 large knee-bends by pressing hard on the shins (put your hands on your knees to help you) to push your heel back in the boot. Your foot is pushed back and you should not touch the tip of the boot with your toes.
Warning: if your toes still touch the end of the boot, take a size above.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT SKI BOOT VOLUME
Choosing the right pair of ski boots isn’t just about the size; volume is also important.
Various parameters come into question such as foot width. You can measure it in your Decathlon store:
choose a shell width of 100 mm
choose a shell width of 102 mm
choose a shell width of 104 mm
Beyond that, other elements can also affect your choice of ski boot size: ankle problems, a well-developed calf, a particularly high instep...
Here, don’t hesitate to keep the boots on your feet for a few minutes while moving freely around. This size or pair is incorrect should you feel any discomfort or pain. A Decathlon sales assistant will advise and help you find the right boots for your feet.
We hope this article will help you choose the right size for your ski boots!
