What is flex?
Brands assign a flex rating to every boot to indicate its rigidity, This figure determines the rigidity of the whole boot: the higher rating, the stiffer the shell. A 70 flex rating is considered the best for average to intermediate skiers. A flex rating of 70–90 is for intermediate skiers. Boots with a flex rating higher than 100 are for advanced skiers. Heavier skiers, however, can go up a level.
How to try on ski boots?
Once your foot is in the boot, fasten the buckles to the midpoint. Can you go further? This means the volume of the boot isn't right for you. Once the boot is closed, flex the boots three times by pressing hard on the shins (put your hands on your knees to help) and push your heel backwards inside the boot. Stand upright: your foot should touch the end of the shell. When you flex, your foot should move backwards so you can no longer feel the tip.
How to make a ski boot more comfortable?
There are many ways to make your foot more comfortable in a ski boot. A ski boot must be tight fitting. For better support, get soles tailored to the shape of your foot arch, volume reducers, and heel boosters.
How to avoid cold feet?
Although often overlooked, drying the liner is the most effective way to avoid having cold feet. Even at -10°C, the foot sweats and the liner cannot dry in the plastic shell, even over several days. Ideally, it should be removed every day. Using boot dryers is more convenient because there is no need to remove the liner—just plug them in!
