|Mondo Size||Men (US)||Women (US)|
Ski boots are measured using Mondo Sizes. Nearly all ski boots are unisex meaning that the arch isn't adjusted for a woman's foot. There are women's specific boots which visually appeal to the female skier more, may use softer materials, and may have a women's specific liner. The liner accommodates a women's narrower ankle and smaller calf. The Mondo size is a measurement in centimeters of the inside of the boot shell. Within the shell will be a thick liner. When you try on ski boots at home, do so with ski socks on. Stand up, walk around and make sure there aren't any major pressure points or loose points.
Modern ski boots have 4 ratchets. Most of these allow for micro adjustments. No tools are needed to adjust these. Twist the ratchets to tighten or loosen them. In order to have a great fit, make the boots as tight as possible and slowly loosen the ratchets until you feel comfortable.
Most boots will give you a Flex Rating which typically goes from about 30-140. The stiffer the boot, the more advanced the skier. Sometimes the Flex Rating is not explicitly stated but it is included in the title of the boot e.g. Nordica Jah Love 130 has a Flex Rating of 130. This is a boot for an advanced skier.
