- About Us
Our main Niseko store is located at Nozomi Views (next door to Rhythm Japan), where we offer ski and snowboard boots, boot accessories and a great range of winter footwear and apres boots. In December 2016, Boot Solutions will also open a second, backcountry-focused Niseko operation which will be located inside the brand new Rhythm Summit store at the Hirafu main intersection. Our bootfitters will happily assist walk-ins. However if you prefer to secure a particular time, or would like to see a particular bootfitter, you can easily make an instant online appointment.
Important considerations of fitting new boots
No two feet are the same. Every person has an individual set of anatomical and biomechanical circumstances associated with their feet and lower limbs which require consideration in choosing the correct fit for skiing and snowboarding. Each boot model by the various brands has been designed to accommodate for the needs of certain skier/rider type, with a certain 'average' or 'general' fit that is unique to that style or model. This produces a situation where there are hundreds of models and styles on the market that all fit and ride slightly differently to each other. The job of the boot fitter is to guide you to the best of their abilities to match your skiing needs with your individual anatomical and mechanical circumstances.

Custom Footbeds/Orthotics - Benefits of Footbeds
Regardless of skiing ability, it is our firm belief that every skier and snowboarder will benefit from custom footbeds (or orthotics) in their boots. Regardless of the shape or mechanics of your feet, footbeds help to take your boots to the next level by providing superior fit, support, and comfort. They help to stabilise your foot and correct your posture, so that the energy you exert while skiing is transferred directly to your skis, rather than being lost in your boot. This ultimately results in less fatigue, less discomfort and better skiing performance.
Custom Moulded Liners
Most ski boots come with a liner that the manufacturer has been made for that shell. Depending on the model, these liners can be mouldable and in many cases the fit is very good. However, for a superior fit, Boot Solutions offer three types of after-market custom molded skiboot liners: Fully injected foam liner; heat moulded foam liner; and cork injected liner. Each has its own advantages, depending on the end-result you are searching for.
Custom Moulded Shells
For the ultimate in fit, comfort and performance, Boot Solutions in Niseko and Hakuba offer the latest technology in custom molded shells from Fischer and Salomon.
The experienced team at Boot Solutions offer the full suite of boot modifications to ensure the perfect fit. These can be applied to new boots purchased from us or your existing boots.
