Buying Ski Boots [£50.00-£100.00]
At Solutions 4 Feet we have a consultation charge when you buy a pair of boots from us. This ensures that we can spend uninterrupted time with you to assess your needs and accurately fit a boot to your feet. This charge includes your assessment, measurement, setting up and fitting of your boot and any follow up adjustments that you might need after you have skied in the boots for a period of 2 years form purchase. (it does not include orthotic footbeds, after-market liners or full canting assessment). The differences in charges are based on the experience of the fitter that you see, just like at the hairdressers. All of our boot fitters have great experience so If you have no medical issues then you probably don't need to see the most expensive fitter (although for the most part they are in the room and available if there is a complex issue that presents itself). Our boot range has something for all levels and foot types, and is priced in our catalogue.
Ski Boot Health Check [£30.00]
A 30 minute appointment to look at your existing ski boots or to assess fitting issues leading to a future purchase. In this appointment we will take a brief history and look at fitting issues in order to formulate a plan to create the best fit possible. If further work or a new boot is required, then a follow up appointment is required. Only available Monday-Friday.
Boot Set up/ fitting (boots we didn't sell) [from £100.00 + parts]
If you have bought boots elsewhere and need them set up or fitted. This service includes heat moulding of liners/shells and set up of cuff cant, forward lean and flex (where appropriate, required and dependent on what adjustments there are on the boot) This service is only available Monday- Friday and may be withdrawn in busy periods. With this service, like all others you are paying for the time of an experienced technician. No fitting guarantee is available on boots we have not supplied, follow up fittings are chargeable.
Custom Orthotic Insoles (£75-£140)
we offer a range of custom products to cover most types of footwear from cycling shoes to ski boots, dress shoes to ice skates. We make these products on site so there is no long delay between assessment and fitting.
Skier Alignment with Boot Sole Milling / Intra-boot cants [from £180.00]
At solutions 4 feet we have one of only 2 boot sole mills in the UK. This machine has been custom built to our specifications in Austria. The price includes full assessment of alignment needs, milling of boot soles to an accuracy of 0.25 degrees, applying a protective lifter and routing the boot back to DIN norms. This process can only be done to solid soled boots or boots with a specifically designed oversized sole unit, contact us to determine if your boots are suitable for this process. For skiers with boots with replaceable sole plates we can add proprietary shims or third party Cantology shims between the sole plate and the shell of the boot on many models to give the same results as sole milling. Please contact us to find out if your boot is one which can have these parts fitted.
Skier Balance & Alignment with SBS [From £120 inc shims]
We use the Shim Balance System [SBS] to work on skier balance. Our partners in this area are Alpine McCannix. This system is used along with a custom footbed to put the skier exactly where they want to be in the boot. The system assesses the best functioning position for the foot, and the actual functioning position of the boot, the two are combined to create your personal balance prescription. The assessment and fitting of the shims takes about 60 minutes, this service is only available at certain times as Andi only comes into the store on specific days based on his availability and demand, (maximum 1-2 days per month depending on time of year)
Ski Boot Fitting & Modifications [£45 per 1/2 hour]
Modifying ski boots is an art as well as a science; if we are carrying out a basic stretch on a ski boot then we have a fixed charge, for all other work we charge at the above rate.
Pedorthic Assessment [£45-£60.00]
This appointment is ideal for people with general foot pain who need advice on footwear issues, injuries and orthotic intervention. During the appointment we will take a brief history of problems and formulate a plan of how to reduce pain using orthotic inserts and suitable footwear.
Footwear Modification [£30.00 per 1/2 hour]
For your walking boots, running shoes or day to day footwear, why should you not have the best fit? We offer a full range of fitting and modification services.
