See a boot fitter in store. Sure, buy them from our online store, but there is no substitute for the sorcery of one of our staff – we fit snowboard boots for a living.
When you try a new boot, it should be a bit difficult to put on. And when you get them on, it should feel snug to tight all around your foot and ankle.
Your toes, when you are standing, should be just touching the front of the boot at the most – any further forward and you are entering a world of torture.
Snowboard boots pack out and soften after a couple of wears, and it’s an unfortunate reality that they can be a little tight at the start. But it’s crucial that you get the right pair, because cold or sore feet is the number one cause of a bad time on the snow.
