Shell fitting a ski boot should be treated like going to a tattoo artist: Don’t go into it drunk. No one has the same two feet, and no two people like the exact same fit. And while 10 percent want that über-snug race fit, the majority of backcountry skiers want a performance fit, one that will accommodate uphill flexibility, stave off hot spots and blisters, keep you warm and comfortable all day, and ultimately deliver the power and control you seek for the down. No matter your preferences, the single best thing you can do in your search for optimal comfort and performance is begin your search with a good shell fit.
