How To Find The Best Heated Ski Boots – Buying Guide

This video will teach you how to find the best ski boots for your body frame and skill level.

Who Should Buy A Cordless Heated Blanket?

In summary:

  • Sizing. Measure your foot in centimeters from heel to toe – that’s your ski boot size. Your ski boot width, or ‘last’, is found by measuring in millimeters from the knuckle of your big toe to the knuckle of your little toe. Most manufacturers only make ski boots in half sizes. The only difference between a half size and a whole size is the thickness of the footbed – the shell and liner are the same size.
  • Footbeds. It’s recommended that you always replace the stock footbed, as they do not offer any arch support whatsoever. Aftermarket footbeds give you more control and balance and they keep your feet warmer.
  • Flex. Boot flex is measured by how much pressure and force it takes to bend the boot forward. The higher the number, the stiffer the boot. A lower boot flex number is more forgiving and is recommended for beginners or casual skiers. A higher boot flex number allows for more control and is recommended for advanced skiers.
  • Volume. Boots come in low, medium, and high volume fits. Volume usually correlates to forefoot width. The more narrow the forefoot, the lower the volume.
  • Arch & Instep Height. These typically go hand in hand. If you have a high arch, you usually have a high instep, and vice versa.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What are heated ski boots and how do they work?

Heated ski boots are just like regular ski boots, but with a heating element built into the liner. The heated liners are powered by rechargeable batteries and typically have multiple heat output settings. This is controlled manually from the liner’s cuff, or in some cases, through a smartphone app via bluetooth.

How much do heated ski boots cost?

Heated ski boots usually cost between $600 – $750 brand new, but are sometimes found on clearance for around $250 – $350.

Are heated ski boots worth buying?

Heated ski boots are definitely worth the cost. The heating element is priced into the cost of the boots from what you’d normally pay with heated insoles. But unlike bulky heated insoles, heated ski boots heat your toes, not the bottom of your feet.

Which phone app do I use for my heated ski boots?

If your ski boots support bluetooth, they are most likely heated with the Therm-ic system and will use the Therm-ic app.
