Hello. I have a pair of last year's Fischer Vacuum 130's. They fit really well except for the area around my little toe. I've had the boots punched twice to give me more room (width) but I'm still don't have enough space, especially on the right foot. I'm 99.9% certain that the problem is now with the liner. When I wear the liner outside the boot I feel the same compression on the sides of the toe box that I feel within the boot. It would seem the liner isn't expanding out to fill the area of the plastic that was punched.
I've read various posts about people having vertical slits cut into the area of the liner they want to expand. Is there another way to do this that a bootfitter has access to? Maybe a special tool designed for liners?
