I was recently fitted with Intuition Luxury Liners medium volume. The first time the bootfitter lightly tightened the buckles during the initial cook and fitting. He said he wanted to be sure the liner had enough volume. I have low volume bony feet and ankles and skinny calves. They said to expect some discomfort for a while as the liners were breaking in. I found that my toes were getting swished/curled and went back to the shop after a day of skiing. (Toes felt like they were in a vise) They used a heat gun to try to open up the toe area. We went through this several times. I also was getting a lot of pain in my right outside ankle bone. I finally decided I needed to just grit my teeth and put up with the pain hoping it would get better after skiing the boots for a few more days. I wake up at night with my feet throbbing. On the 8th day I took my boots off and my toes were numb. Feeling came back in all but my big toes on both feet. They've been partially numb for 4 days now. I decided this was not right. I went back to the shop and the bootfitter there at the time said the only way to fix it was to recook the liners. We did that and now the liners are too small for the shell. I went back and another fitter said that what happens when you recook the liner. His solution was to shim the bottom of the footbed. This didn't work and now the liners feel loose even when tightening the boot. It's a sensation of the being tight and loose at the same time. Also my ankle bone hurts like hell. The foam material in the liner and firmer than the original liners and I'm wondering if my feet are too sensitive for a firmer foam. I bought these because I thought a custom liner would fit better and be more comfortable and perform better. Also be warmer. I'm afraid I'm stuck with a pair of liners that don't work. Aside from being in constant pain I did have great control. I feel like I'm being a pain the in ass to the ski shop coming in all the time complaining. They want me to be satisfied.
I went back to my old liners today because I couldn't take the pain of the Intuitions any more.
Is it out of line to ask for a new set of liners? I'm willing to pay some for a new pair. Also wondering if a different model maybe more appropriate. Thanks
