OUR BOOT FITTING PRODUCTS

FOOTBEDS

It’s rare that boots fit perfectly out of the box. A supportive footbed is the first step to a personalized fit. Our footbeds range from $40 to $50 off the shelf. We carry trim-to-fit foot beds from Superfeet and Masterfit. We will recommend an appropriate footbed, depending on your personal needs.

NEW BOOT PURCHASE FROM P3

A new ski or snowboard boot purchase from P3 includes a custom fitting if necessary. We want to make sure your first day and all your following days on the slopes are enjoyable.  After a foot assessment, a footbed or liner adjustment may be applied as needed. We will recommend an appropriate upgraded footbed, depending on your personal needs.

CUSTOM WRAP LINER

If you are in search of the best possible fit and performance, a custom liner may be the final puzzle piece. These after-market liners are molded to fit your feet in your ski boots. We carry the heat-mold-able Power Wrap liners from Intuition. We highly recommend using custom footbeds with custom liners.

BOOT FITTING TECHNIQUES

SHELL STRETCHING

Most people are not going to be lucky enough to find a boot that fits perfectly out of the box. It seems like something can always use a little tweak to get it perfectly. A very common mistake is to buy a ski boot that is too large in size or volume because the correct boot seems too tight in one small area. This is especially common with anklebones and “sixth toes”. It may not seem obvious or intuitive, but it is much easier to gain room where needed, than to pad up a boot that is too big everywhere except for that one problem spot. Fortunately, ski boots are designed to be customized, as feet are like fingerprints; no two are exactly alike. For things such as bunions, “6th Toes”, big ankles or any abnormal bones, we can modify the shell where needed. This can take the form of shell stretching, grinding and/or cutting. Liners can also be stretched or modified, or even replaced with a new custom one.

SHIMMING

We often add foam shims to boot liners in order to secure movement or relieve pressure points. The most common shims are medial/lateral ones that snug up the boot to reduce movement caused by excess volume. Tongue pads are also common, and can be used to relieve shin bang, increase heel hold and snug up the upper cuff of the boot. Even properly sized new boots that fit well will often benefit from minor shimming or grinding.
