Womens ski boots
Tips for buying women ski boots
Why should you get women-specific ski boots? A ski boot must be comfortable and it needs to adapt perfectly to your shapes and needs. This is why a ski boot designed specifcally for women is a better choice.
Women ski boots are designed according to the results of specific studies
Women have different shapes than men. Their calves are lower, their heels thinner and their feet narrower. Their ski boots are taking this into account. Manufacturers have reduced the cuff height, lowered the liner and redesigned the bucklery in order to offer optimal hold without applying too much pressure on the calves. Also, the upper part of the liner has a V shape and heel-lock was improved. Women’s feet being smaller than men’s, boot lasts are smaller as well.
Women ski boots are more comfortable
Generally lighter, women ski boots are also more comfy because women are often more sensitive to cold than men. The liner often features a fleece coating for a better heat retention, and shell is better insulated. Some boots also work with various foot heating systems.
Women ski boots can also perform
The times when women boots delivered less performance than men’s are well over. They are now designed with efficiency in mind. The boots offer precision, reactivity and can very well be used by professionals (instructors for instance). There are models available for all kinds of style (freeride, freestyle, alpine) and there are even freetouring boots with walk modes.
And of course...the look !
Ladies, don’t neglect your style. Boots are getting more and more beautiful, designed with lots of details (glitter, leather, etc) and stunning colours. On top of performance and comfort, women ski boots have also tons of style!
