Question about Lange RX 120 boots

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hey all, my question is concerning the packing out of a pair of Lange RX 120 boots. I am a Ski Patroller currently skiing on a pair of Tecnica Diablo Magma's which owe me nothing as they heve been wonderful but are starting to feel packed out, And I have to cinch down the buckles when skiing aggressively, kind of sloppy.

 

I have a pair of Lange RX 120s that were for sale but I am contemplating keeping them so here is my question. Since I Patrol, I have to do quite a bit of walking, hiking, kneeling,etc., does anyone who has any experience with this line know if the Lange liner will pack out enough to give me the comfort to wear these under these conditions. I know I would love them just freesking but I do not want two sets of boots.  Any info would be helpful.  Thanks,    Dave

The mono-injection shell allows for easy customization when necessary while Lange's Control Fit Liner addresses traditional hard-to-fit issues. You should try that mono-injection feature.

So you are saying that the liner in these will pack out a bit even though they feel pretty thin to start? I am not really referring to the width, moreso in the instep area which would be my only concern.

My Lange liners packed out after about 30-60 ski days. Now I'm on intuition liners which supposedly will last 300 days. 

 

Not sure that liners ever pack out in a nice way--more like how you described your other boots fit (i.e. you're now cranking down the buckles etc)

What's weird is I feel like in my left boot my heel just does not feel stable. I know the Langes wouldn't have that problem, only concern might be the instep area. Any thoughts?

Good question for the Ask A Bootfitter forum. My stock and intuition liners required extra padding with foam above the heel.
