Over the years I have always managed with the boots provided by the organisation I ski with - until last year, when although the boots looked sophisticated, they were agony. My problem is having wide and pronounced bones in my ankles, which conflicted with the pivotal stud on those hire boots. After trying to up-size, and struggling for 3 days I hired boots from a local shop - and they were much better. So, this year I decided to buy a pair of boots. I wanted to keep the price down, so looked at these first. Although I wasn't sure about the size (so I bought 2 pairs to try on at hone), I went for the larger pair (1.5 sizes larger than my normal shoe size). Although they are a struggle to get on, they served me well, very comfortably, and provided the control I needed. Very pleased with them so far.
Good price and comfortable
Clips are hard to do up, and the buckles can turn.
