Lange rx 130

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
hello,
Last winter I tried this boots in Jackson Hole.As usual in Lange boots the fit in the ankle was the best and overall I was happy.But after ten minutes I began to worry about a pressure point on my shin where the liner's tongue ends.I used lange for 20 years except the last ten and I know them well so I didnt buy them.I will try them again next winter but...here goes the question:
Do you think there is some way to have a little bit more cushion in that paticular place of the boot?.

Thank you in advance!!

you can add padding to any part of a boot, however i do not think that is the root of your tongue pain.

 

first of all there is no relationship between the lange boots that you skied in for 20 years and the langes that you tried on in JH. secondly the lange tongue is very well shaped and padded for skiing, so there is no smoking gun there.

 

pressure from a boot during try on is usually a simple fix or solution. it could have been something as simple as the shell layers getting reversed as you buckled the boot up, or the last person that tried the boot on left the tongue twisted in the shell as it went back in the box. or it is not the correct lange model for the shape of your foot, etc........

 

good luck sorting it out,

Do you think I can add some neoprene to the upper part of the liner tongue as cushion.Which bootfitter do you recommend at Teton Village or jackson?

See Stephen McDonald (Skiing-in-Jackson here on the forum) at Teton Mtn Sports (I think thats what it's called) at the base of the gondola in Jackson Hole, he is a certified PED.
