When you are searching for new ski boots, you'll want to find a boot that has the right Flex. Flex is the stiffness of the boot, and is demonstrated by standing with your toes and heels firmly against the ground, and sliding your knees down into a "Ready" sports stance. A highter flex number is stiffer, this means that it takes more work and more muscle to flex your ski boot forward. A lower flex number means that the boot is easier to flex and requires less work.
We have found that ski boots in the $249 - $349 range offer the best combination of price, performance and comfort. These ski boots generally have upgraded liners that are more comfortable and more contouring than lower priced boots. If you are a more advanced skier that makes tighter, harder turns, and you are regularly skiing difficult terrain, you will want to go for a boot that is stiffer.
