Selected as one of America’s Top 15 boot fitters by “SKI” magazine, Bud Heishman has over 35 years experience fitting boots. The boot fitting journey began out of high school as a shoe designer for Kinney Shoe Co. and shortly after his 38 year career as a ski instructor, regional D team member and examiner. With a passion for skiing and a never ending pursuit to improve skiing performance, Bud searched for ways to improve boot fit and the angles associated with how they positioned the skier over his/her skis. To this day he has helped thousands of skiers, including Olympic medalists, ski more comfortably and improve their skiing performance through boot modifications. He uses a proprietary methodology assessing and adjusting 10 different angles along the body’s planes of motion to give the skier a balanced stance allowing equal access to both inside and outside edges and comfortable balance fore/aft.
