    Same. Always went toe up. Switched to calf down per recommendation of Richelson's when I first visited there 7 or so years ago.

    I went through the mistake of buying boots in the flat lands thinking that if I needed changes, it would be good to be able to go back to a store that was near where I lived. Big mistake, after a year and a half of having toes going numb, I gave up on that shop and went VT to buy new boots at Boot Pro in Ludlow. Buying in the mountains is what I recommend, take a day off from work to avoid the weekend crowds in the store, and then ski the next day or two at the mountain nearby. For me the first day in the new boots I had to get off the mountain and go back to the Boot Pro twice for adjustments.

    Flex for me is obvious as I am a big guy so I am an automatic 130 flex.

    This is also key, what I learned is to buckle only the top buckle lightly, then flex leg all the way forward to drive the heel into the pocket, not banging the heel on the floor. Then tighten the buckles top down.

    Not mentioned yet but for me I’ve had 4 buckle boots and 3’s . Four is the way to go for fit , thoughts ?

    As far as buckling boots I always do the lower calf first and after clicking in re do all of them.

    I have average feet so ebay works for Dallbello model I like I’ve been able to luck out.

    From bottom to the top in order of tightening, I go:

    1, 2, 4, 3, Powerstrap.


    I've never paid attention of watched other people do it, that just works for me.

    This is pretty much what I do (main exception being I flex to seat the heel instead of banging the heel on the ground):

    Cabrio (3 buckle) shells are popular among bump skiers for their progressive flex. They're also a lot easier to get on and off. Overlapping (4 buckle) shells are probably better for carving, where torsional rigidity is an important factor.

    That's a lot of manipulations.
