Telemark boots

Anyone who enjoys Telemark downhill skiing knows how disgusting it is to ski with poorly fitting, incorrectly sized or unnecessarily stiff boots.


Before you go to the ski shop, you should start by doing a foot analysis at home according to the instructions on CinderellaFIT webpage and cut off the drawn foot model and take it to the store.

Once you are in the store, please measure your feet with that manufacturer’s size meter that shows the right size.
Next, check the correct size, so that you ask the seller to take the Telemark boots inner shoe off and remove the insole from them.
Then stand on the insole and check that there is 10-14 mm of space in front of the toes.
Now place your foot drawing on top of / under the insole, to get an idea of how the selected size will fit on your foot.
When choosing, it is very important to consider the total volume of Telemark boots and not just the length

In TELEMARK boots, you should pay special attention to the size, which can be spacious enough from the front of the foot because more space is needed on the footboard compared to a normal downhill skiing shoe.

For the top brands currently on the market, the lasts are demanding in terms of both the heel and the front and the total volume, so personalization always guarantees an individual fit. One very common detail associated with the current selection is the width of the heel and the shape of the heel cup.

If the heel width in Telemark boots is not enough, then it will easily result in choosing too large Telemark boots. Therefore its width should be checked, so that you test the width so, that you stand just inside the outer shoe in the store checking the width of boots.

The accompanying foot drawing shows you relatively clearly how much at different points in the outer shell should be modified to make the selected Telemark boots work for you. Telemark boots should also be tested at which point on your foot the scalp hits the “hinge” point of elasticity inside the shell. This is easy to check either with a drawing template or by putting your foot inside the shell. If the scalp hits directly in the middle of the “hinge” elasticity then the size is too small.

Telemark boots can be a little bigger when normal skiing boots, so that the “hinge” at the elastic point does not hit the middle of the scalp.
If you have an ankle tendency in your legs and big ankle bones, cramped bones, all the bones on the outer edge, then the outer shell modification is the only option right away. Nowadays, shops also offer ski boot “furnishing” to achieve a better fit and have a market significance, as it must be taken into account that the actual operating temperature of the skis is up to 80 Celcius degrees different from that other than firing.

In addition, if after “ovening” while the outer shell is still on the outer shell is not cooled quickly then the shell will return to its original shape.
Telemark boots editing completes the fit.

Nowadays, the plastics of boots differ really a lot between different manufacturers, so their modification requires a really high degree of Precision and professionalism. Nowadays, it is impossible to use milling at any point in the shaping of the outer shell, because there is simply no possibility of it.
Many stores also often recommend shaped insoles as additional sales, but they have very little effect in improving the fit of the boots.
