Tips for buying men ski boots
How to choose your men ski boots? They must be comfortable and match your skiing style. In order to make the best choice, here are a few recommendations.
The versatility of your ski boot matters
When you choose you ski boots, be rational and reasonable. For instance, there is no need to go for hybrid freeride/touring boots if you only go skiing a few times a year. Don’t buy ultra technical boots if you ride on piste as much as you ride off piste. Better pick something versatile if you do a bit of everything rather than something very specific.
The flex rate of the boot depends on your skiing level
The flex means how stiff your boot is. It is an important matter when you buy boots. Depending on your level and style (piste, freeride, freestyle), the flex needs to be harder or softer. A flex rating between 60 and 80 is ideal for intermediate skiers. From 90 to 110, it is for advanced skiers. Expert skiers will ride boots with a flex at 120 and above (competition boots). In general, we consider that a flex at 90, even for very good skiers, is enough for a freeride or freestyle use.
Comfort is the best!
Current ski boots deliver enough performance for recreational skiing: if you are a good skier without being a professional, focus on comfort rather than performance or precision. Look closely at the comfort details (padded liner, reinforced tongue, dual density insoles, insulation, boot last)
