Dobermann Pro130 update

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I have pair of Dobermann Pro130's that are at least five years old.  I ski them for the first half of the season on the east coast (VT) when most of the snow is of the hard, manmade variety. Love the boots.  Very comfortable.  They are the correct size.  They are in perfect shape but the fit has loosened up over the years.  Other than getting new liners, what's the best way to do the tighten up on the existing stock liners to pump up the performance?  I have chicken legs, so taking up additional space above the ankle and around the top of the cuff is a priority.  I'm guessing that power straps, those pads that you stick to the inside of the tongue, and thicker socks are the obvious answers.  Any other worthwhile options that should be considered?  If I do go the new liner route, is Zip Fit the best option and why/why not?  Thanks.

my personal favorite would include a neoprene tongue shim glued to the tongue. neoprene is available in different thickness, so it is easy to "test" drive the fix before it is glued in permanently.

 

i also like using a 3mm wrap glued around the cuffs collar above the ankle bones.

 

zip-fit or foam injected replacement liners work great for reducing volume. the cost is considerably more then neoprene tongue shims or cuff wraps.

 

without seeing your foot and lower leg it is hard to give you an absolute definitive best fix over the interwebz.
