Ski boots are robust footwear developed especially for skiing, offering protection against jolts and bumps as well as injury from ski edges and other external causes. The ski boot encloses the foot firmly, while at the same time allowing the movement necessary for skiing techniques, in that the ankle has the room it needs to move, but at the same time allowing the transfer of every steering movement completely to the ski.

Ski boots are robust footwear developed especially for skiing, offering protection against jolts and bumps as well as injury from ski edges and other external causes.

The ski boot encloses the foot firmly, while at the same time allowing the movement necessary for skiing techniques, in that the ankle has the room it needs to move, but at the same time allowing the transfer of every steering movement completely to the ski.

The relevant national and international guidelines and norms establish the requirements.

Standard Boot Sole dimensions > iSo 5355 The boot manufacturers who display one of the following markings: DIN, ISO, ÖN, UNI guarantee that they use standard norms. In the absence of any of these, check first with the boot manufacturer. These boots are designed for use with a pair of classic skis, and not with a monoski, snowboard or skiboard.

It is the skier’s own responsibility if (s)he chooses to take the additional risks.

When a pair of used boots is brought in, make sure that any worn parts are still within the norm.

The Alpine boot soles are standardized and bindings are designed accordingly. The standard norm concerns not only the shape and dimensions as illustrated, but also the friction coefficient of the area of the sole which is in contact with the anti-friction plate on the binding.
