evoFit Custom Ski & Snowboard Boot Fitting Program

evoFit Philosophy

evoFit is designed to provide skiers with a high-quality custom boot fit that balances comfort & performance for a wide variety of skier and snowboarder types. We stand behind our foot assessment and product selection for each individual.​

Our Guarantee

We are dedicated to providing you with the best possible skiing and snowboarding experience. As such, we want to help you find the most comfortable ski boots possible. We assess each customer individually and stand behind our product selection for each rider’s ability level, budget, intended use, foot shape, and foot mobility. Even properly fit boots can cause discomfort during the break-in process, and everyone’s comfort level is unique. If we’re unable to make your feet happy within three fit sessions, we’ll happily exchange your boots for a new pair, or a gift card in the amount of your boot or evoFit program purchase.*

*For ski boots, Respective Fit Guarantee included with the purchase of an evoFit Life or Season Package. For snowboard boots, Respective Fit Guarantee is included with the purchase of an evoFit Season or Basic package.

What is Boot Fitting?

Cold and uncomfortable feet can quickly ruin a ski day, no matter how good the conditions are, that is why it is so important to start off with properly fitting ski and snowboard boots. Different ski boots are designed for different shapes of feet and different types of skiers - the best fitting ski boot will be different for almost every individual. 

Fortunately for all of us, things have come a long way since the days of cold, rear entry ski boots. In addition to better insulations and lighter, more comfortable materials, manufacturers now offer ski boots for wide feet, narrow feet, flat feet, or high arches. With the biggest selection and highly experienced boot fitters at each of our store locations, evo is the best place to buy ski boots.

Our professional boot fitters at our stores in Seattle, Portland, and Denver are some of the best around. They have years of experience helping skiers find their perfect pair of ski boots. The process of determining how to size ski boots can be confusing. evoFit's custom boot fitting service not only helps skiers start with the right boot, but helps them make any adjustments to the boots to better suit the individual skier. These adjustments range from heat molding the liners and shells of your ski boots, to punching or grinding out particular sources of pain. Come see our ski boot fitting experts at evo, and we'll help you get your feet out of your old icy plastic coffins and into warm and comfy high performance slippers.

There are millions of foot shapes in the world and only a few dozen boot shell shapes. A good bootfitter helps those two realities co-exist.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Why does evo suggest buying a footbed and socks with the purchase of ski boots?
    Footbeds or ski boot insoles function as a “base” that connects your foot to the ski boot. Our fitting philosophy is based around “dynamic movement of the foot and ankle.” The footbeds we sell allow the foot to flex and rebound into its natural position. This support reduces foot fatigue and keeps your feet in a consistent position, allowing us to shape the ski boot to the shape of the skier’s foot for a true custom, performance fit. Ensuring each skier is in a thin sock (Light, Ultralight, or Compression) means the evo custom boot fitter is taking a key step towards ensuring the ideal functioning environment for the skier’s foot, ankle, and leg in the boot. Socks with thicker padding or that fit improperly can bunch and cause pain points that can be easily avoided.

    The guarantee includes liner and shell modifications, or installation of ski boot accessories free-of-charge for the life of the boot*. Boot accessories are subject to program with pricing, installation is included. Boot accessories include: Boot bags, Booster Straps, boot heaters, buckles or parts.
