Deluxe Fit 


Suited for: A rider who is looking for the complete set-up; along the comfort and performance that custom footbeds/orthotics can provide, following full customisation of your new boots, your boot fitter will make an assessment of your boot-to-binding-board set up and make recommendations based on your particular biomechanical needs. 

Price range: 50,000-80,000 Yen (approx. AU$500 - AU$800) (depending on the model of boot you choose). 

Time:  1.5 hrs 

What to expect: Your boots will be fit by one of our highly trained boot fitters, who will conduct a biomechanical assessment and will spend time with you to understand your riding ability, physical condition, and your riding aspirationsBased 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 basic liner mold to help shape it to the contours of your ankle and calf.  They will then use a molding machine to craft you a pair of custom footbeds.  Once the boot and footbeds are prepared and confirmed comfortable, the boot fitter will then provide the option for a stance alignment assessment and make recommendations for your individual boot-binding-board setup.  As part of our Full Fit Guarantee, any other boot modifications required, either at the initial sitting or up to two seasons (the current season and the next), are included in the price.

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