Is There A Difference Between Men’s and Women’s Ski Boots?
Yes, there are some differences in the fit and design between men's and women's ski boots. Many women's ski boots are specifically shaped to be narrower in the ankle, heel and forefoot area to reflect that women generally have narrower feet. The cuff length on women’s ski boots is also shorter than in men’s, due to many women having shorter lower legs than men. This allows the calf muscles to sit comfortably outside the boots where they are not restricted.
How to Choose Women's Ski Boots
Of course, women’s ski boots can be comfortable. But there are a few things that need to be addressed to give the best chance of a comfy fitting ski boot. Make an accurate measurement of the length of your feet, so you can find the closest ski boot size. Boot sizes jump up 1 cm at a time, so you should choose the closest size up from your foot measurement. Make sure you are realistic about your ski ability, as it is needed to know what ski boot flex range is suitable for you. To find more about this, check out: What Ski Boot Flex Should I Choose?
Finally, be aware that even though men's and women’s ski boots are divided, a pair of men's ski boots may fit the shape of your feet more. Many women's ski boots are specifically shaped to be narrower in the ankle, heel and foot width area. The cuff length on women’s ski boots is also shorter than in men’s, due to many women having lower sitting calf muscles.
