Liner question, Salomon Quest Max 120

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have just bought this boot, and have bought it in a 27.5. I have a forefoot width 1st mt to 5th mt of 120 mm. The boot, needless to say, has required some punching and needs more. I actually have a little "negative" room across my right forefoot standing on my orthotic in the shell (slight pressure on 1st and 5th mt simultaneously). That said, as I've been mucking around at home trying to figure out the best info to give my shop when I go back in next week for (hopefully) final tweaks, I have realized that this liner is SUPER narrow and rather unforgiving in the forefoot, so I don't tolerate them even out of the shell. I have been reading about aftermarket liners.

What is the best plan at this point:

1. Finish the shell work correctly and count on the liners packing out cause they will

2. Those liners won't stretch out at the forefoot. Get the shop to modify them. (If this is the way to go, what's the "best" mod they could do for me? I've reviewed the various options discussed here, but don't want to take out my own knife while the shop pros are still working to make things right)

3. Dump the liners and get an aftermarket set.

4. Any option I have missed?

Cheers and thank you for your thoughts.

1)  yes,  might need some stretching too

2)   what ever the shops feels is best.   I heat and stretch to start with.  cut later if needed

3)  intuitions are warmer and lighter.  

4)  ski them more
