So I'm looking at aftermarket liners to upgrade my feel in my boots and to be able to keep between different pairs of boots so that I can maintain a comfortable and performance oriented standard feel. I'm a little bit confused by all of the models that are available on the website, but believe that the Gran Prix model would be best for me. I'm in a 26.5 shell salomon x pro 90 (partially due to being an intermediate skier and partially because I weigh 155 and I didn't want to have a boot that was impossible to flex) and my foot measures pretty much exactly 26.5 cm when standing and weighted. For zipfit sizing, should I go with the 265 mm size or downsize it and maintain a tight fight by having the material stretch at my toes? Also, my second toe is slightly longer than my big toe, so I'm measuring from the back of my heel to that toe, not my big toe - will that affect sizing?
I use superfeet insoles currently, though i plan on getting custom insoles in a year or two when I get new boots. Is that something I should be taking into consideration?
Finally, there's no shop that I'm currently able to get to that sells zipfits, though there is a shop close that has a boot oven (for heating shells) that I could use to mold them.
Are there other things I should be taking into consideration? I can feel my current liner starting to pack out and I know it's going to happen more in the next weeks and season. Should I just buy a different, more stiff and downsized boot if I want a tighter fit or can this serve as an intermediate step so I don't have to spend a lot more money (I'm in college ).
Thanks for your help!
(as an aside, for foot size and such, anyone familiar with rock climbing, a 41 in la sportiva pythons is about the most perfect fit I can imagine around my foot - a decently high arch, skinny ankle, and my toes are slightly curled, so if I wanted them flat a 41.5 would be a good size, if that helps with how big my foot is and what fits it snugly - I'm not sure how much transfers to ski boots)
