In their natural, relaxed position, your feet form a V shape. In this position the knees remain parallel when bent. Fischer took these anatomic facts into account during the development of the Soma-Tec ski boot and perfected the result.

Soma-Tec boots are different than conventional ski boots because of the unique way they position feet on the skis.

Fischer’s patented anatomical last puts feet into that V-position. As a result, knees and ankle joints are no longer twisted, even when the knees are bent.

This enables maximum control with minimum effort. Your body's center of gravity lies directly above the middle of the ski. This means you have perfect power transfer, optimum grip and absolute precision.

Fischer has the patent on the abduction from the balance point on the foot, which is the only spot to abduct from effectively to benefit more than 80% of humans. It's 7 degree total abduction, 3.5 from the toe, and 3.5 from the heel, which keeps you completely centered over the ski.

It's a natural stance, it's how we walk, how we run, and how we should be skiing.

The End of Plastic Ski Boots?

When it comes to ski boots, David Dodge thinks carbon fiber, not plastic, is where it’s at. Find out more about his new product, Dodge Ski Boots, which are lightweight carbon boots that even ski racers are endorsing.

Once your foot is in nice and snug, stand with your toe on a one-inch-high block (a book or piece of wood works nicely) and lean forward. Stand like this until the liner has cooled, roughly 10 to 12 minutes. Then pull your foot out of the boot and remove the sock and toe cap. Then put the sock back on and step into the boot to see how it feels. You're all done.

How to Heat Mold Your Boots

If you get a new pair of boots, you should take them to a professional bootfitter to make sure they're completely dialed. But, let's say, for some reason (like you're leaving on a trip tomorrow or you can't afford the bootfitting), you need to heat mold your new ski boot liners yourself. Here's how to do it.

What do you love?

Yeah, we all love skiing. Obviously. That’s why we’re here. For the face shots and the glory and the self-congratulatory après stories. But it’s really the little things that make it.
