Boot Guys need your help and opinion.
Own a pair of Langes which I have had for about 5-6 seasons. The liners were replaced and new footbeds made by Olympic Bootwerks at squaw valley about 3 yrs ago. Always loved the boots and even better when Buck put in Intuition liners and new footbeds. Then the tongue where it overlaps cracked, I stopped crack with drill hole, crack went by the drill hole so I drilled again (little bigger diameter) epoxied with plastic glue and awaiting 15/16 season.
Heres the boot (approx. 2010) 26.5 superblaster.
I have looked around for the same boot but can't find so have thought about alternatives if plastic continues to crack and/or deteriorate. I ski about 70-90 days a year.
1. Put a WANTED ad here on epic for Bears to watch for this boot at this Falls ski swaps, I will pay cost of boot and $50.,00 to bear who find the boot for me.
2. When I have to buy a new shell or the whole boot, discard the liner and put my own into boot. This lange is wide, does anyone know the last of this boot ? Can any boot pro recommend another boot that will take my liner and fit good. I am just very against not using my liners and footbed as I have a fit now I have looked for over many years. Obviously woould like a boot that feels the same as my Langes ie. flex, stance etc.
Can anyone help me?
