AT Ski boot for wide foot?
« on: November 01, 2004, 05:41:59 AM »
Help! Ok, this is not a climbing question BUT ...

I have a EEE foot and bought a pair of Lowa Structura EVO GTX last year and had them fit (stretched, scraped) and custom footbeds made but they are still painful on my wider foot.

Anyone know of a wider AT boot?

Any advice?

Thx,
David

I've got the same problem. Not sure about the availability or the performance, but Garmot boots tend to be wider than most I've tried for tele.

Good luck!

I have fat feet. garmont telles fit me fine were the scarpas were way painfull. I doubt that the sizes run the same in a diferent model boot but it is worth a try.

I have narrow feet and the garmonts work fine for me.  A lot depends on the type of liner.  I have the new garmont moldable liner, with aftermarket footbed and I have had 0 problems with narrow feet.  They traditionaly fit wider feet though.  Try to get a pair with the moldable liners, your feet will thank you.  I have the older GSM model of AT boot and a pair of GARAs for tele.  Both are great boots.  The GSM isn't as stiff or as responsive as I would like (race boots), but it tours well.  For really short tours I do use my stiff alpine boots if there will be some rowdy skiing.  Most AT boots are a compromise between performance and tourability, so I'd still call the GSM a good boot.
