    Just because YOU have weird feet doesn't mean that everyone else is "REALLY clueless". Take a deep breath, man. There is a lot of people out there who can take an off the shelf boot and it will work just fine.
    There is often difference though between "work(s) just fine" and properly fit. I don't doubt that there are some folks who do have a "stock foot" shape where right off the shelf and they're good to go is the right call for them. I strongly feel though, that many of those who think that way, just have never had a properly fit boot and/or don't think the the extra $$ that they may have to pay for the services of a GOOD boot fitter, is worth it.

    Kind of like the difference between "water resistant" and "waterproof" clothing

Next time all I have to do is get cutom insole and all my problems are solved. Damn, I've apparently wasted so much time and money trying to get a boot that will fit me exactly when all I needed were cutom insoles

    If you think I'm describing "club feet", then apparently you're clueless (there's that word again) about what foot issues MANY people have.

    Try a YouTube bootfitting segment from a real bootfitter, OR go to a real, highend boot shop like Fanatyco at WB, Sports Loft in SLC or many others and let them laugh in your face after taking all those unnecessary measurements of your feet instead of just making a cutom insole that will solve everything.

    BTW, all of my boots have cutom footbeds, all of them, and I have a box in the garage that probably has another 5-6 pairs in trying to get them exactly right. That deals with ONE issue. ONLY one. But hey, it's the only one your kid apparently had, so, well, that takes care of everything, right?
    Look this an opinion based forum and people have different perspectives and experiences. We don’t come hear to get berated by an ass that thinks everything he is selling is the Bible! The OP never mentioned he had foot issues and it is not like he is a 50+ day skier. Every person here approaches gear purchases differently and I hope they do. Would be pretty boring if everyone agreed with you or even myself.

    Apparently you have lots of money to spend on gear - good for you!

    This is true for me. Before getting properly fitted years ago, I thought I was fine with off-the-shelf boots - no pain, no obvious performance issues. After getting fitted boots, I had occasion to ski my last pair of off-the-shelf boots again and realized just how ill-fitting (too large) and limiting they actually were.
