How to choose the correct ski Boot size
The sizing system commonly used in ski boots is MONDOPOINT sizing. This measurement refers to foot length from toe to heel expressed in centimeters (a foot measuring 26.5 cm long should fit a 26.5 boot).
Every authorized LANGE dealer has a specific LANGE footsizer in order to precisely measure each skier’s foot. (display the Lange footsizer). Choose the same boot size as the measurement for a precise fit.
For correct boot sizing, do not forget:
- When flexing into the boot, your toes should have minimal space against the end of the boot.
- Ski socks will make a big impact regarding the fit and comfort of your boot. Thicker socks can often limit blood circulation and provide less warmth, while a thinner sock will offer greater sensitivity and precision. Find your pair of Lange socks: Man, Woman, Junior.
- To help avoid pressure points, boot buckles should never be overly tightened. Instead look for a more precise initial fit that doesn’t rely on you overly-tightening the buckles.
- The liner will pack out and conform to your foot over time so look for a snug, yet comfortable fit.
The Fit of the boot (or last) is the width of the foot measured at the 5th metatarsal (widest part of the forefoot). It determines the level of control and precision of the skier. Boots between 92 and 97 mm are dedicated to competitors or narrow feet. An average foot is 99 mm. Beyond that, there are boots to suit wider feet with 102mm width. For a good ratio between comfort and control, choose a boot that matches the overall volume and length of your foot. If you are looking for precision, choose a narrower last. However, do not choose a boot that is too wide because you may have less control of your skis.
Fit between 92-95: Narrow
Fit between 97-99: Medium
Fit between 100-102: Comfort
Every authorized LANGE dealer has a specific LANGE footsizer in order to precisely measure each skier’s foot and define if they are: “narrow”, “medium” or “comfort”.
