For the people who struggle to get their boots on and off, you've been heard! With a double Quick Instep design and Lift Lock Buckles, getting in and out of these is too easy.

Ski boot fitting is something we take very seriously at Gnomes. It requires a wealth of knowledge and years of experience to see you right. There are serveral factors to consider when fitting boots including but not limited to: foot shape, foot profile, size, ability, age, biomechanics, goals and previous issues. It is always recommended you visit us instore for a full custom ski boot fit.

Select your performance level Select your performance level

 

Below is our performance level guide.  Each ski boot we offer displays a performance indicator to help you select the correct boot.

  1. You have skied once or twice and enjoyed it so much you want to continue.

  2. You can master simple turns and stopping on the learner’s slopes, but still need more lessons to improve.

  3. Staring to link turns on the intermediate slopes and want to get to the next level as fast as possible.

  4. At the intermediate plateau, you are linking turns from top to bottom in good conditions, if snow conditions are not perfect you don’t feel as confident.

  5. You are linking turns confidently in most snow conditions on groomed runs, steeper terrain gives you some trouble, you mainly use medium speeds and medium radius turns.

  6. You can ski at variable speeds all over the mountain but deep snow, icy conditions, moguls and very steep slopes slow you down. You can use a variety of turn shapes.

  7. 80 % of the mountain is well within your grasp, with a great level of technique and style, you are thinking about spending more time off-trail.

  8. You are a confident skier in all conditions, you like to spend most of your time off trail at the club fields, or you love carving at high speeds on the steeper terrain on-trail.

  9. Expert skier in all conditions, you love the sport and ski hard and fast all the time.  You can attack all-terrain with aggression and top technique.

  10. Professional skier you don’t need us, you get paid to ski.

Custom boot fitting

 

Analysis

Using the latest technology, we take a scan of the foot on a pressure mapping system showing us images that can’t be seen by the naked eye like weight distribution and anatomical structure of the feet. This can help us identify the areas you need support. Gnomes experienced technicians evaluate your stance, posture and bio-mechanical makeup identifying your foot shape, flexibility, previous sporting injuries and any problem areas that may occur within a ski boot.

Footbeds

We mould the custom footbed directly to the contours of the feet while you wait. The feet are the foundations of the entire body, therefore we must support them correctly, otherwise major problems will occur. Pronation and supination are normal bio-mechanical motions that the foot must do to perform correctly, when either of these motions becomes excessive they can cause foot fatigue, knee, hip and back pain, a Gnomes custom footbeds will prevent this from happening.  All foot types including neutral feet benefit from custom footbeds by improving comfort, performance and weight distribution while aligning the lower leg they decrease fatigue, impact and shock.

Boot selection

At Gnomes we have a large range of different fitting ski boots to accommodate all foot types, and abilities.   After your foot analysis your technician will choose a selection of a maximum 3 ski boots that are correct for your foot shape, ability, fitness level and future goals. Together you and your technician will the find the best fit.  Once the final boot has been selected you will add in your custom made footbeds and completed the following if needed:

Shell Modification

We may need to carry out some strentching to the plastic shell of the ski boot to accommodate the foot using our ski boot press this is a simple process and makes for a fully custom shell offering maximum comfort.

Liner

Liners can be molded and modified as needed in order to aid in initial comfort. There are also options for aftermarket liners that can have added benefits over the stock liners.

Canting

Once you have the correct ski boot for your foot shape, and custom footbeds supporting your foot in the correct way, we need to align the cuff for the correct weight distribution on your skis. Bearing in mind that some of the miss aliment happening in your lower leg can be caused from over tight or miss- balanced  muscles, your technician will work through a program that helps you to improve this.

Additional Tips

 

  • Invest in a good quality technical sock that wick’s moisture away from the foot and offers padding where you need it the most. NO Rugby socks!
  • Only ever wear one pair of socks at a time.
  • Do not tuck thermals into your ski boots or socks, this can cause pressure points.
  • Work into your budget a custom footbed, this makes or breaks the comfort of the ski boot. The foot needs to be supported.
  • Almost everyone will NOT find a ski boot comfortable straight off the shelf, customisation will be needed!
  • Do not try on every ski boot in the shop as there are only one or two that will fit your foot type and it will confuse you in making a final decision.
  • Ski boots are snug, toes will touch the end when walking around in a ski shop. However this will change once in "ski postion" (knees bent)
  • Do not over tighten your buckles. If you feel the need to the boot is too big or not the correct fit.
  • Store your ski boot done up when not in use.
