Custom fit liners in any ski boot???

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi,

 

I will be coming to Lake Tahoe on the 25Th January to ski Heavenly, North star and Kirk wood. Believe accommodation is in South lake Tahoe.

 

I am wondering if I can get custom made liners for my Tecnica Dragon 100 Ultrafit boots as I believe the original liners are too small as when I have a hard days skiing when I take my boot off I can notice the stitching of the liner near toe pocket on my little toes (they are often white by this point) I wear thin socks and no I don't ever allow them to bunch up in toe area. It is definitely the liner even when I take the liner out of the boot and wear it for a while the same thing happens being they are firm and stitch marks appear indented on my foot. I have a very wide foot being 10.5cm wide. I am hoping I can get a custom liner to fit my shell. As the boots are not that old and in decent shape. I believe the outer shell is the right size as I have had them blown out to allow room for my wide foot and when placed my foot inside shell without liner I have adequate space.

 

Can any of you experts advise if I can get custom liners to fit my current boot? If so any recommendations... I have heard of the sure foot guys up in Squaw valley is it... Do any boot fitters do custom liners closer to where I will be skiing in case of further issues throughout my time skiing.

 

Cheers!

 

Can not wait to hit the slopes and all the amazing snow :)

 

Kind regards, Megan.

If you are ready to replace the stock liner anyway, try something first- take the liner out of the boot and the footbed out of the liner. Use a razor blade or exacto knife to cut two lines through the bottom of the liner, one going side to side just behind the ball of your foot, the other going from the middle of this line forward toward the toe of the liner so that the two relief cuts make a 'T' shape. Put the footbed and the liner back into the shell and see if this provides the added width you need.
