Alpinstore has you in mind with a wide range of ski boots for adults, as well as ski boots for the little ones. Yes, skiing isn't always fun, especially when it comes to putting on ski boots. But with Alpinstore's advice, no more difficulties! We tell you more about ski boots ...

How to choose the right ski boot?

You're probably wondering which alpine ski boot to choose? There are several criteria to take into account when choosing your ski boots:

- Your gender: boot models often differ slightly between men and women, even if the basic features remain similar. Alpinstore offers the best women's ski boots and the best men's ski boots for all our brands!

-Your type of skiing: Depending on your type of skiing, you'll need different ski boots. Today, there are boots specially designed for piste, allmountain, freeride and freestyle.

Piste : flexible, comfortable and easy-to-use boots for occasional skiers. Stiffer boots for better control, for advanced skiers.

Freeride/Freerando : rigid flex and a fairly wide last. Walking mode recommended.

Freestyle : flexible boot with heel cushioning for optimum landing comfort.

-Your level of skiing: Your level of skiing will mainly influence your choice of flex. As you read earlier, flex can be more or less rigid.

-Boot width: given in "last", this corresponds to the width of your foot, where it is widest. Ranging from 92mm to 104mm, it's important to choose the right shell width, because your foot must be properly supported, not forgetting that your toes must be able to move freely.

-The ski boot size: written in "mondopoint", it corresponds to the length of your ski boot, and more precisely, to the length of your foot in cm. You'll find it either on the outside of the sole or on the heel.

Ski boot size: which size to choose?

A little tip from Alpinstore: once you've got your boots on, stand upright and bend your knees. As you do so, your heel moves back and sticks to the back of your boot. This gives your toes more room, so you don't get cold quickly. Well supported and no compression points? Then you've got the right ski boot size.

Which flex index should you choose for your alpine ski boots?

As mentioned above, flex is an important element in the choice of your ski boot, and is directly linked to your level and morphology.

- Flex for women:

Beginner and/or occasional skiers : flex between 60 and 70

Intermediate skiers, regular skiers with a good level of skiing : flex between 70 and 90

Confirmed/expert skiers with a very good level of skiing : minimum flex of 100

- Men's flex:

Beginners : flex between 70 and 90

Intermediate skiers with good skiing ability: flex between 90 and 110

Advanced/expert skiers with a very good level of skiing : minimum flex of 110

- Children's flex:

For children between 22 and 26 Mondopoint (size 35 to 41), ski boot flexes range from 50 to 90. As with adult ski boot flexes, the better your child's skiing ability, the higher the flex you should choose.

Please note that ski boot flex can also vary with the age of the ski boot: the older the ski boot, the more the plastic used can cause the ski boot flex to loosen.

How do I adjust my ski boot?

It's important to tighten the hooks so that the foot is well supported, both the top and bottom hooks, not forgetting the Velcro fastener.

It's important to find the right fit for your body type, so you don't end up with compressed feet that hurt when you adjust them, but the foot must be properly supported. To be sure, when you move your foot from left to right in the ski boot, make sure that the boot makes the same movement.

Ski boot technical features

- Shell: is the rigid part of the boot. Although there are different models, the characteristics are the same (flex, width and length). The best-known today is the wallet shell, which has two main parts: the collar, which is the upper part to tighten the leg, and the shoe , which is the lower part and surrounds the foot for full support.

- liner: this is the inner part of the ski boot. It's the part of the boot that's in direct contact with your foot, and it's made of foam for optimum comfort. Today's booties can be thermoformed, which means that they are heated (by professionals) so that they take the shape of your foot.

- Sole: this is the lower part of the shoe, under the hoof. This part is in contact with the ground when you walk, but also with your ski when you put on your boots. The sole is a classic, but in recent years it has become increasingly gripwalk. This new technology allows you to walk more easily and naturally thanks to a slightly rounded shape, but also to avoid slipping when you arrive on less stable terrain.

- Buckles: more often referred to as "hooks", they enable you to tighten your ski boot according to your needs. The tighter your foot, the more support it will have, and the more your ski will respond to your movements. There are often several hooks on a ski boot: 2 on the shoe and 2 on the collar. Tightening is then integral and precise.

- Flex: Flex is the stiffness index of your ski boot. The higher it is, the harder it is to bend and flex your legs. But the higher it is, the more precise it is, and therefore the better its performance. As you can see, a high flex is reserved for good skiers. Conversely, a low flex is ideal for beginners, as the boot will be easy to handle and provide optimum comfort.
