Do you have wide feet? Many skiers do. That’s why many manufactures make ski boots in a wider fit. But Atomic goes one step further. The Atomic Live Fit series starts off a little wider than normal but then Atomic put soft inserts in the shell by the little toe and ball of the feet to allow the shell to stretch if needed.
The last thing any boot fitter wants to do is heat and stretch a boot shell because once its done, it can’t be put back. And heating the shell can also effect the performance of the boot. So when a manufacture makes a wider boot, many times it means we don’t have to heat the shell to fit the foot and that’s good thing.
