In need of ski boot buying advice

I'm thinking of starting skiing again after 8 years and I'm pretty much a beginner. Back to lessons for me !!!

I'm looking for advice on where I can find a good Ski shop that does boot fitting in and around the Swiss Romande / French border region (I'm based in Nyon). I have flat feet so for me I need a little extra help to make sure I get the right fit.

Thanks

I'd highly recommend Lanches in Annemasse/Ville la Grand if you can make it over there - handy from Geneva, maybe not so much from Nyon...

Absolutely top class boot fitting for me, and a few friends have had the same experience. I did get custom footbeds as well though to help with my slightly flat feet. Took a good hour and a half for the boots and footbeds start to finish, but definitely worth it.
