I am in the market for new boots and am looking at Dalbello (KR Two Fusion ID, Il Moro ID, Rampage ID), Full Tilt Classic, Nordica Fire Arrow F3 and maybe even the Tecnica Coshise 100. The Dalbellos and the Full Tilt come with Intuition liners. The Nordica and Tecnica do not. I've seen lots of talk about how crumby stock liners are, packing out almost instantly. But it is hard to believe that Nordica and Tecnica make crumbly liners. Should I consider the Intuition liner in the Dalbello and Full Tilt a real advantage, that tilts me toward the Dalbellos and Full Tilts and away from the Nordica and Tecnica?
I'm not sure that it matters for this question, but I am a guy in my 50s, advanced, mostly front side skier. 5'10", 135 lbs. Ski both east and west. Narrow feet, bony ankles, narrow calves. Fit along the inside of my ankle has often been an issue. I know I need to find a talented fitter, but I'm trying to avoid getting a boot fitted, packing out the liner in one season, and then springing for an Intuition or Zipfit liner next year.
Many thanks for the help.
