Boot Liner Question

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Last year I was fitted for new boots and had a bad experience.  After much work with a recommended fitter, I scrapped the boots and sold them as I just could not get them to feel comfortable (Felt too tight).  This fall I found a new retailer with a highly recommended boot fitter.  After being fit and trying multiple boots on, I chose the Lange SX120 boot.  While fitting at the shop, the boots felt pretty good but a bit tight.  They tweaked the shell a bit and they seemed to be OK (knowing they were knew boots and were going to feel tight).

 

After getting the boots home and wearing them around the house, they seem way to tight again.  Even when I take the liners out and just wear the liners around the house my feet start to feel somewhat numb.  Could this strickly be a sympton of the liner not being packed out?

 

I am really hoping not to go through my bad experience with new boots again this year. Thanks for any input!

Wearing a boot around the house is not skiing and will have little effect on the fit of the liner---give them a couple of days out on the hill before you decide to revisit the boot fitter, if you still have a problem.  More than likely they will break in and ski great so the answer to your question is---Yes.

 

 

Good Luck
