    Chicago Area Bootfitters

    Trying to help a coworker out who works and lives in the Chicago area. Family skier who has been having issues with high arches and now wants to address it properly now that kids are getting older and skiing a full day.

    Any help or recommendations would be great.

    Thanks

    Never been to either but have him give Scandinavian Ski Shop or Viking Ski Shop a call. They can either help him out or point him in the right direction. Both shops have been around for a while.

    Viking has had a shop on Lincoln Ave in the city for probably 50 years. Also a shop in the northern burbs but the best boot fitters are in the City. Most of the shops in Chgo are gone so Viking does most of the business. They know what they are doing

    Just have them buy them in a really good shop, in a ski resort.

    This is the only guy I would consider in Chicago, if your a serious skier.
