    I bought fischer vacufit. I have a high arch. I have been back 6 times to the fitter and after remodeling adjusting etc they still cut off the bloodsupply to my feet. don’t believe the advert . 100% fit. guaranteed. if it doesn’t fit you end up with expensive useless skiboots. What a scam

    Hello Peter,

    Unfortunately, very high arches can be extremely difficult to fit into ski boots. It is possible that the only option for a comfortable fit would be a high volume boot with a really high instep. I am sorry you have this issue!

    Hi Jesse,

    I have recently bought RC4 130 and had boot fitted it twice but still have the same problem: a huge pain in toes after 1-2 hours of skiing. The size of the boot is 26,5; my ordinary shoes are usually 7,5-8. Was I wrong with the size of the boot (27,5 was too big; I was also told that RC4 should be smaller than other ski boots) or should I work on how I ski and lean more forward?

    Hi Jesse,

    I have the same problem as Andrey (pain in toes) after the first fitting and the problem persisted even though the remodelling was repeated twice. The MP point of the boots (RC4 110) is 27.5 and the length of my foot is 27 cm. Is there any chance to solve the problem?

  6. Jesse says:

    Hey Jaroslav,

    My initial thought would be that there was not enough padding placed on your toes when they were molded. Was a toe cup used? I would suggest going to a boot fitter that will put extra padding on your toes so that the boot molds with space available. Good luck!
