I bought some Technica Ten.2 boots last year, and opted to forego the custom boot liners the shop was offering. My wife has the intuition wrap-around liners, which she really likes, but the boot-fitter only had Zipfit liners and they were pretty pricey. The base liners feel fine, but my toes are constantly numb in any weather below 20*. I'm thinking an upgrade to the Intuition liners will help, which raises a couple of questions:
1. Is it OK to change/upgrade liners in boots that are approximately 1 year old? I'm guessing they have about 20-30 days on them. I got them mid-way through last season, so not sure on the specifics. At the time, the boot-fitter said I could upgrade later, but would be less effective the longer I wait.
2. Is this something I need to see another boot-fitter for, or is the molding something I can do myself? Has anyone here had success with self-molding these types of liners?
I don't mind going to the boot-fitter and paying for the expertise, if it's really necessary. But if the process is trivial and I can do it myself, I'd prefer to go that route.
