I'm curious as to what ski companies have done with their equipment to specifically cater to taller skiers. I for one know for a fact that I have more leverage on my boots than people shorter than me. I'm squeezing into boots that are two sizes down from my actual foot size, which would be more appropriate for someone at least 6 inches shorter than me. I'm curious because I've been in situations where I have flexed all the way through my boots without even really trying. Granted it was warmer, but still, would there have been a difference if I didn't have the height and leverage?
