I need to replace the "Heel retention knobs" that I have added inside my boots. (OK I have skinny ankles ;-)
The leather "bow ties" I had fashioned out of belting and glued in with contact cement have come adrift. Warm weather perhaps.
I could just clean things up and glue the old bits back in place, but I wonder if there is a better choice. Something that can be molded and then carved . I have used LocTite construction adhesive, but that gets brittle in one season's time.
I did a search of these forms on "Boot fitting filler", but the returns were unrewarding. (How do these engines work anyway? ;_)
The added material is about the size of a quarter on each side of the tendon, and perhaps 6-7 mm thick. Shaped to feel good. The leather piece is sort of like a butterfly bandage.
Foam pads stuck to the liner is just wrong, tried that, the liner lifts too. Though it does give a sense of cozy firmness,
Scarpa AT boot, lots of walking...
