I have a pair of Salomon x3-10's that I have been very happy with. Had new footbeds installed last year and the shells heated to eliminate some pressure points and I thought I was golden for a while. This weekend however we had some pretty heavy wet snow at Stowe and I sensed some slop developing in my ankles. The boots are 26.0's and I wear a 10 street shoe, so I'm confident they aren't too big and they are great in almost any condition. The slop I encountered was in bumps with heavy snow.
I've done some searching around and wonder if some basic ankle shims/pads would give me a little more life. Or perhaps a set of Intution liners? The boots probably see 10-15 days of real skiing/ season, with another 10-15 of teaching little kids. Does it make sense to play with these a bit more or is it time to move on after 3-4 seasons?
