    Welcome Jeff! I just may have to come by your shop and pay you a visit.
    Good bootfitting can make a tremendous difference in your skiing. I think many peole here will agree with me that they would rather have good boots and mediocre skis rather than mediocre boots and good skis. And good boots need a good fit. It frys my a$$ that most boot companies will charge $500+ for boots and give you a piece of cardboard for an insole .
    I look forward to reading your input on this forum Jeff!

    Hey Jeff welcome, I'm down here on Long Island NY, appears that SUREFOOT NYC is the closest "best boot fitter" in this area. Do you have any experience with them or have heard anything about them?

    The essential truth about ski gear. Boots are everything!

    And if you've never had custom footbeds and a proper boot fitting, well you just haven't really felt what it's like to ski.

    If you've never had a personal boot fitter, get thee to Jeff (or your friendly neighborhood boot fitter)!

    I could not have said it better...
    Half of what I say is meaningless, but I say it so that the other half may reach you.
