A new ski or snowboard boot purchase from P3 includes a custom fitting if necessary. We want to make sure your first day on the slope is an enjoyable one and all the following days on the hill. 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.
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.
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.
