With the variety of stock models and stock size options available for the Riedell user, many times with proper fitting knowledge and the use of equipment such as a boot press, custom requests and expenses can be avoided. It is however, at times, necessary that custom boots be built. It should be understood that custom boot measurements, drawings, and support data be absolutely as accurate as possible. It is the responsibility of the fitting dealer to insure the following steps are taken to insure that accuracy:
1.) Complete Riedell’s Custom Skating Boot measuring chart completely and accurately.
2.) Whenever possible, fitting attempts from a stock boot should be made indicating closest possible stock size and width.
3.) Provide accurate readings for boot fit on the Riedell fitting device.
4.) Provide overall foot length from heel to toe of both feet in inches in the standing position to the nearest 1/8".
5.) Complete accurately skate problem areas needing special fitting attention.
6.) When providing foot tracings be sure to follow the directions as indicated on the Riedell Custom Skating Boot measuring chart.
