Zipfit dealers Metro New York Area

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

Anyone know if a shop that fits Zipfit liners in the Metro New York Area.  I'm actually in Southwestern Connecticut but will most likely have to travel a little.  The one shop that is listed as a dealer in CT on the Zipfit website is adamant that they do not sell Zipfit liners.  I've sent a few emails to Zipfit but never heard back from them.  I've read a lot of great reviews, but their service seems non-existent.

 

If anyone knows a shop that fits them I'd love to know.  Thanks!

Zipfit really had no real coverage in the east coast, Out west they are very popular, I have tried to address this with the company with no response. They are very easy to fit after doing some research on what model to buy. I fitted myself 5 years ago with great results, and have converted a few of my friends. The company will sell direct, and ski center has a good selection, or better yet take a trip to Snowbird and get fitted at Superior sports at the tram center. They are a great investment if your existing shell fit is good.

Who wants to deal with an unresponsive company, though?

If their product is that much superior than anything else on the market (and it is) then I do.

I am a bit miffed that their service is so poor. There is no number to call and they just flat out don't answer emails as I sent three through their website, BUT their reviews speak for themselves and I feel like they may be the answer for my thin ankles.  I'm not comfortable fitting them myself however since I don't even know what model would work best ion my situation and what size to get.  I'm currently in a pair of Lange Rs120 S.C in a 24.5 and would rather have a pro fit me in the right size and model for my feet.

 

I don't think there are any dealers near me so I may have to wait until I go to Vermont next winter.  By the way their dealer page is not all that accurate as the one dealer they have listed in Connecticut swears they don't sell Zipfit liners. Too bad too because they're near my house :-(

You should go to their website and look at the figment website, do you know the last of that boot, the size would be same as you boot size , the model would be either Grand Prix or would cup. A Grand Prix and World Cup are almost the same with the Grand Prix having more of the figment material in it . It is easily custom fitted. I have the same thin heel and the liners
give great heel hold. If you shells have a good fit you will have great results with no custom fitting required. I followed the video procedures for fitting..

I don't know if it is much closer to you than up north, but Whindham Mountain in New York I believe does sell and fit Zipfit liners.  I have not been up there, but I have heard good things about their boot work.

That's about 2 hours away a little closer than Vermont. I was hoping to find something a little closer, but I think I'll just have to make a day out of it.

Marc Stewart at Windham is the best.

I sent Marc an email this morning (Saturday) and he replied within an hour! Hopefully I'll be up to see his this week.
