Lange rx 130 lv liner

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

My beloved boot's liner is dying a slow death.  For whatever reason my right foot is getting some slop.  I added a 2mm shim in the boot, which helped for a few weeks, but I am getting that feeling as if my footbed is starting to roll.  Not sure that is really happening but things are getting loose.  Going with a thicker sock is tough because I start to get pain in the toe box area on the sides (they have been punched out).  The bottom of the liner, especially at the heel is getting umm.. thin.  Granted they have about 180 or so days of skiing on them but I am not ready to dispose of an entire boot.  Kills me to get rid of boots after three seasons.

 

So here is the question(s)... What else can I do to take up some space? Is it worth it?  Should I buy Intuitions or some other after market liner, and which would be comparable?  Or suck it up and drop some cash next year on boots?  

 

I run a snug fit. These are 26.0/26.5 and I am size 10 street.

 

Oh, and the left foot is all good, WTF?

 

Thx

Wouldn't say you have a snug fit at least not in length.  !0 is a 26.  Your right and left feet are probably different shape and volume whig is typical.  Sounds as if you at least need liners, but as loose as you say the fit is it might be interesting you check shell volume and maybe you need a lower volume boot.

neoprene tongue shim between 3 and 5mm. drives the heel down and back, and gives the buckles more holding power over the foot. has no effect on your toes. get rid of the the shims under the liner.

Thank you.  I will give that a shot.  

 

Surprised that the shell is not considered snug.  My toes press against the front  if I stand upright. I used to be able to keep the first two buckles unbuckled and ski it just fine.  Only needed them buckled to keep the snow out.

what is the length of your feet in centimeters, not a shoe size, please?

 

what is the diameter of your calf muscles at the top of the liner?
