Been to a few brick and mortar boot fitters lately. Shop personal seems to change yearly. Not always for the better. If you are anywhere on the Eastside, (Bellevue/Issaquah/Renton) Kevin and Zach at Gerk's Issaquah are doing exceptionally good work imo. Had them do 3 difficult fits today.
I've driven into Seattle and Bellevue several times this year for boot fits... most of them a waste of time. Much to my disappointment.
I've worked with both guys previous at other stores 4 or 5 years ago and had no idea where they had landed. Anyway, imo, they are doing good work on climbing, AT and Alpine boots. Including all my double boots, both La Sportiva and Scarpa. As you might imagine I can be a real pain in the ass fitting boots. Both these guys have been awesome in every respect.
I've had them fit all three types of boots. To date, I have been very pleased on each fit. Thrilled I found them again today. Better yet they are even closer for me now.
