There are some very reputable boot fitters that can help you fit ski boots in Chamonix, because Chamonix’s reputation as a mecca for extreme sports means that it attracts many experts in all aspects of the equipment that you’ll need.
Poorly fitting boots can ruin a day’s skiing, if you’re only looking forward to the moment you can take them off! They can even cause you to have less control over your skis, making accidents more likely. Most reputable boot fitters therefore offer this service free of charge if you buy your ski boots in Chamonix, or offer this service at competitive rates if you already have your own ski boots in Chamonix with you.
Sanglard – The Bootroom
The Bootroom was founded in 2006 by Damien Amblard and Jules Mills who have worked on the world cup circuit for many years. Their goal was to offer skiers of all levels the same high quality service that they offer when working with pro skiers.
Between 15th November and 15th April, Damien and Jules are based at Sanglard Sports in Chamonix centre. They know that boots are the most important part of your ski kit and they have dedicated themselves to helping you find the model which is best suited to the shape and size of your foot, as well as your ski level and style.
“Good humoured, available and especially passionate about doing great work, your feet are in good hands.”

After years of working in ski shops, boot fitters and foot specialists, the founders of Sole Bootlab went rogue and set up in a little garage space here in Chamonix in 2007. They’ve looked at thousands of feet, learning with every pair how to better make a ski boot more precise and comfortable.
When you come in they’ll help you choose the perfect boot for the shape of your feet and your style of skiing and build you a custom footbed, before moulding up your liners and then punching, grinding, cooking and generally abusing the shells to make sure they fit every lump and bump on your feet!
They’re open everyday of the winter so pop in for visit and they’ll see what they can do for your feet so you feel comfortable in your ski boots in Chamonix.
