These boots fit 90% of our customers perfectly, and ended up being the go-to when a customer walked in with a tricky foot. I'm sure you're used to ski boots being incredibly particular and difficult to fit into, and probably doubting the comfort of this boot. But I assure you, it's the truth. So what makes the boot so special? Well, let's get down to what Live Fit is all about.
A few years ago, Atomic started revisiting the issue of uncomfortable ski boots. Rather than simply add more foam or gel to their boots, Atomic wanted to approach the problem from a construction standpoint. What they eventually decided to test, is the Live Fit system. Live Fit is literally a piece of elasticized plastic that's strategically placed on both sides of the boot's toe box. In a neutral position, the width of a Live Fit boot is 102mm. When a wider foot enters the boot though, the elastic zones are able to stretch to fit the actual width of the foot.
The result is an absolutely perfect fitting boot. In a typical situation, you'd have to stick your 103mm foot into a 104mm wide boot. With Live Fit, your 102mm boot actually forms to your 103mm foot. If you take it a step further, you realize that the Live Fit system isn't rounding millimeters either. So if your foot is actually 103.4852mm, then the Live Fit boot will become 103.4852mm wide. It's ingenious, and extremely comfortable.
It's important to mention that Live Fit boots aren't made with a certain ability level in mind. Atomic realizes that having a width adjusting boot is beneficial to skiers of all abilities, so they've made the Live Fit series span from beginner skiers, all the way up to advance skiers preferring a 120 flex.
