We Can Help

Correctly-fitted ski boots make a huge difference to comfort and technique. Here at The Boot Lab in Méribel and Courchevel we specialise in feet. Our knowledgeable, friendly experienced team guarantees that you’ll leave with correctly-fitted ski boots. We realise that new ski boots can be a big investment that’s why we offer a free, no-obligation assessment and a comfort guarantee.

Our Service

Many of our clients experience boot discomfort or pain when skiing. Some feel that their current boots make it difficult to ski correctly, maintain control, or reach the next level. Whatever your reason, at The Boot Lab we will discuss your needs, your ability and ambition, as well as your posture and technique, in order to make sure that we fit you in exactly the right pair of ski boots.
We test and handpick our range of ski boots each year, meaning we can offer our customers the very best value and range on the market.
To guarantee your comfort, we’ve produced our own footbeds and liners, which combine the latest materials and technology.

BSBA LOGO
All our staff have been trained through the BSBA system (British Ski Boot-Fitters Association) and we have amassed extensive experience by fitting 1000’s of boots, for skiers of all levels.

 

The Comfort Guarantee

How do your boots feel?

  • Too tight
  • Too loose
  • There’s rubbing, redness or blisters
  • Bruised shins
  • Sore Ankles
  • Painful bunions

We have helped thousands of customers with these problems. Don’t suffer in silence! Our qualified and experienced boot-fitters offer a free, no-obligation assessment.
We’ll work on your existing boots, where possible. But where a new boot is required we’ll pick the best boot for your needs, making a custom insole (footbed) to help you ski with the correct stance and support. Sometimes our customers require boots to be adjusted using our state-of-the-art equipment which is all part of getting the fit just right. Once you’ve taken your boots out for a ride, if there’s anything you’re unsure about you can pop back for adjustments free of charge. That’s all part of our comfort guarantee.

Enhance Your Performance

If you are looking to improve your ski technique whether in powder, on bumps or steeps, or simply taking your skiing up a level, then custom-fitted boots will help.
We fit many local ski instructors who know exactly what they are looking for in a ski boot, so we have a good range of boots that are aimed at advanced and expert skiers. For intermediates, the right pair of boots can help to build confidence and improve your stance and dynamic movements meaning that you can lift yourself off that plateau and really start to see results. At The Boot Lab, our experience and knowledge is the most important factor in getting you into the right pair of boots. We don’t use fancy machines to scan your feet; we use our eyes, hands and brains to really provide that hands-on approach and get it right first time. Read what our customers have said about us.

They were not expensive
“Having arrived in Courchevel with little hope of being able to Ski due to a 9 year absence and a Bunion, I headed to The Boot Lab on day one. I had been recommended to go there from the Uk but also by Ski World.
Gavin had me in Boots in less than 2 hours and they were the most comfortable Ski Boots I have ever had. They were not expensive for the custom fit service. I am so grateful and happy. Thank you is not enough.”

My first day of pain free skiing in 5 years
"Incredible service from Gavin and Joel. I have serious feet issues and have just had my first day of pain free skiing in 5 years thanks to being properly diagnosed and fitted. I just can't thank the boys enough, or recommend them highly enough."

Incredibly professional and knowledgeable
“New boots for husband and myself from Meribel. Gavin looked after us, incredibly professional and knowledgeable, even got my ski style exact from me just standing. I have been in boots two sizes too big, unknowingly for years. Having the correct size has improved my skiing beyond explanation. My husbands size of boot also reduced and also correct. They will also adjust the boots if there are twinges. I can’t recommend them enough. Allow time, this standard of service is not quick, but it is worth it. Thank you to all of the team.”

Day two, happiest feet ever!!!
"I have the oddest feet. That need much patience. Particularly when finding the right boot. And after considerable time spent with the guys in The Boot Lab, we thought we had. But one day skiing proved we were wrong. Back I went. And another patient hour and a half was spent figuring out what was wrong. Found the problems, and the solutions. Day two, happiest feet ever!!! Thank you"

I’ve never seen a shop so busy, anywhere!
"I attended the Meribel shop yesterday, fabulous service!
They made me feel important.
I've never seen a shop so busy, anywhere!
And their help, advice and product works.
I was looking at losing more than the one day of my lift pass, but thanks to their help I was up, out and skiing again the next day.
If you need them, expect to be with them for well over an hour. But it's the best hour plus I've spent in a ski resort.
Top guys, top service, top product!


Thankyou!

Bunch of really nice guys doing a fantastic job, cannot recommend highly enough.
"My husband and I bought new boots after ten years swimming around in old Decathlon boots, Ewan and his team spent over two and a half hours fitting us, making sure we were comfortable and giving us expert advice without ever patronising or giving us the hard sell. They just simply know their stuff and the result is fantastic. Our son already had boots but he was uncomfortable, convinced no-one could help we still took him to The Boot Lab in Meribel and after spending a good deal of time diagnosing the problem they fitted new footbeds, problem solved! Bunch of really nice guys doing a fantastic job, cannot recommend highly enough."
