Black Diamond AT Liner Lengths?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Does anybody have BD boots with the efficient fit liner (quadrant/slant etc.) that they can measure? I need to know the outside liner length to figure out what size will fit best in my boots.My boots are 317-mm BSL which is in between BD's AT BSLs of 310 and 320-mm.

 

Thanks

The BSL is a measure of the exterior sole length and isn't directly tied to the actual length of your foot.  Wouldn't it be better to use the measure of the foot length inside the boot?  That is, get the liner that is sized to your foot, ie: 27.5 or 28.0 or whatever.

One would think that a reasonable approach except that BDs boots range almost a full 10mm for the same MP size depending on the model so I didn't think that approach would work well. I don't want to end up with a liner that slides in my boot or that gets a wrinkle. These would not be going in a BD boot which is why I wanted a measurement to compare to the inside length of my boot. I know with intuitions people sometimes go up a size for the liner if their particular boot measures a bit longer than other boots with the same MP.

If the boot shell fit is correct for your foot, then get the liner to fit your foot and there will be no bunching or sliding.  There's no need to try to get the liner size based on the boot size, especially by using the BSL.

I think I will need to order two sizes to see which fits best and hopefully can sell the wrong one as I will not be able to return them. I used a shorter foot bed in this boot once and it slid forward so I assumed a shorter liner would slide as well until it stretches to fit my foot.

Thanks for the help Bob.
