Boots that suit you
well and fit correctly are to be treasured. Notice how many skiers carry their boots onto airplanes instead of packing them in checked baggage. Look around in liftlines, too. Expert skiers might be on the latest skis, but their boots are often several years old. That’s because they’re very attached to them. A good boot becomes a natural extension of your foot, demanding little thought. Find boots you can grow to trust and love. Then keep ’em—and watch your progress on the hill.
