Replacement heel pieces for older Salomon boots

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Greetings Bears! I wonder if I could pick your combined brains?

 

I have a great pair of trusty Salomon Integral Equipe 8.1 boots but, unfortunately both heel pieces have given way last week in France. I'm home now, but need to source two heel pieces. I've emailed Salomon, but I suspect with the age of the boots I'm on a hiding to nothing. Would any of you have any ideas as to where I might try to get these important bits of kit? 

 

Are there specialists who could help, is there a market in boot parts, or do I have to buy a pair of old boots to cannibalise? Are the heel pieces identical, or do the come in different sizes to match particular boot shells? (Mine are size 350, L=333)

 

I'm based in Northern Ireland, but have US friends & colleagues who could bring them home for me.

 

Grateful for any help you can provide.

 

CW :-)

i THINK that they where one size to fit all, but can't remember,   you are best to find a whole boot and strip parts from it.

 

Keep in mind that if the heels are worn, odds are the liner is worn out too, and has lost a lot of its insulation value.   New boots are lighter, warmer, and stiffer lateraly, and work MUCH better with the new modern skis.     Some of the new boots are even easier to put on too.
