At Gnomes we specialise in custom ski boot fitting. Our one-on-one personal service uses a cutting edge, computerised pressure mapping analysis system, aiding our experienced technicians to hand craft your footbeds. Our combination of experience, tecnical knowledge and technology provides you with best biomechanical setup while offering maximum comfort and control.
Computerised Foot Pressure Analysis System
We are the only ski boot store in New Zealand armed with a computerised foot pressure analysis system to aid you with the comfort and performance needed for control and enjoyment on the mountains.
This high-end modern technology, which is used within the medical and podiatry industry, takes images of the underside of the foot by simply standing on a pressure mat. These images are then analysed by your personal ski boot technician to identify what is impossible to see with the naked eye.
The analysed images show the ski boot technician the weight distribution and anatomical structure of the foot, identifying any support and movement issues as well as the biomechanical makeup of the foot and lower leg. The technician will then manufacture a pair of custom footbeds that enhance the posture and weight distribution within the boot, improving the support, stability, comfort and performance and also enabling the technician to resolve any previous comfort issues.
We are stockists of all major ski boot brands and have a large selection of boots suitable for all foot shapes, sizes and abilities, including alpine and touring. Every skier and snowboarder will benefit from this system, from your weekend warrior to your seasonal pro.
