Quick fix for sole inside of boot slipping throughout the day?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

As the title says, as of recent on both boots I've been having the issue of the sole of the inner boot slipping backwards throughout the day to the point where my toes end up directly on the bottom of the inner boot, which is quite awkward and slightly uncomfortable.  I was wondering if anyone knows of a good way to remedy this?  I've thought of the following options...

 

-Take the sole out entirely and just place my foot directly on the bottom of the inner boot (tried walking around with this and its definitely not as comfortable as when the sole is in properly but better than when its half on/half off the foot)

 

-Put a bit of glue (not sure of what type, suggestions?) on the bottom of the sole and put it in the boot and wear it around until the glue sets (my fear here is the glue may not set evenly, making the boot potentially even more uncomfortable/unwearable)

 

What do you guys think?

 

I've attached a couple pics just to be clear on which part of the boot I'm talking about.  In the pics the sole in removed from the inner boos and placed beside it, second pic is the underside of the sole (the part that would normally touch the bottom of the inner boot.

 

Thanks in advance!

Doublestick tape, although many would say you can take th opportunity to upgrade your insoles. Thereare threads on the semi-custom trim to fit insoles, and of course full custom

Carpet tape.

The term you're looking for is 'footbed'.

 

Skiing with no footbed will probably be uncomfortable.  Double-sided tape should help without being permanent.

 

If you're not looking to replace the whole boot setup, any competent bootfitter can get you a new footbed that fits better.  These run from probably something like $20 (for basic trim-to-fit insoles) to several hundred dollars (custom-fit orthotics), with a bunch of choices in between.

FWIW, it also sounds like your liners are packing out.
