Basic Fit


  • Correctly fitted boots
  • Basic liner mold

Please note: Basic fit does not include a fit guarantee.

Suited for: A skier who is looking for a no-frills option and does not have any foot/lower limb issues

Price Range: Beginner: 40,000-90,000 (or approx. AU$400 - AU$900) depending on the model of boot you choose. See our note on boot categories.

Time: 45 minutes

What to expect: Your boot fitter will measure your foot, assess your foot type, ascertain your level of skiing experience and find out what you are looking for in a boot (i.e. comfort or performance).  Based on this information, your technician will then present you with two to three of the most appropriate boots for you to try on and will talk you through your options. Once you’ve selected your boot, your technician will perform a heat mould of the liner to help shape it to the contours of your ankle and calf.

Please note that with a Basic boot fit, any boot modifications required either during the initial sitting or at a later date, will be charged on a per item basis.

Our Basic bootfitting service can be performed on a walk-in basis, however if you wish to make an appointment, you are welcome to do so.
