Custom Moulded Shells

For the ultimate in fit, comfort and performance, our Niseko Hirafu store offers the latest technology in custom molded shells from Fischer and Salomon. 

Fischer Vacuum Fit

The Fischer Vacuum Fit technology makes it possible for the first time to adapt the shell of the ski boot completely to the anatomy of any foot. 

By heating up the boot shell to 80 degree celius and then using a combination of a compression pad and air pressure, the boot conforms to the exact contours of your foot, giving you a perfect fit. 

Boot Solutions stocks a large selection of Fischer Vacuum boot models that are compatible with this process.

Salomon 360 Degree Custom Shell

Salomon’s boot range has a number of models which include mouldable custom shells. Their patented 360 Custom Shell Technology integrates Kaprolene in the construction of the shell, which when heated, moulds to the shape of the foot.   This process, which only takes 20 minutes to complete,  creates a mirror image of the skier’s foot in the shell of the boot, offering premium comfort and maximum precision.
