/ Bootfitters in Chamonix
I've heard good things about Sole but am interested to know the opinions of others...?
Got pretty good service last winter from the guys at footworks, opposite the midi. Were happy to make adjustments to liner and boot as the liner moulded to my foot through use. Heard good things about sole too.
Yup, another vote for Jules at Sanglard Sports. The best in Cham and probably one of the best in the alps. Used to fit boots for FIS teams.
You usually have to book an appointment.
Thanks for the recommendations!
The consensus definitely seems to be Jules... I'll get a fitting booked.
Frank, thanks for the history. I think Sole was actually set up by a guy called Steve who used to work with Jules at footworks.
The great thing about Sole is that they will be very frank about what boot will work and not work with your foot. It means you don't end up picking something off the shelf because it's a good touring boot and might happen to fit your foot (a liner doesn't necessarily sort this out), but you have a boot that suits your foot shape from the outset. This is of course before any moulding has been done.
The guys in there are extremely clued up, with great customer service.
Sole are certainly very popular on Snowheads. Are you saying that Sanglard/Jules will try and fit a boot that may not be perfect for your shape foot because you selected it for a technical reason? I'm sure this could be interpreted as both good and bad...
Another vote for Sole (But not tried Sanglard to be honest)
Can definitely recommend sole, super nice guys, they gave me a beer while they fitted my boots, always a bonus.
