I think my liners are worn out...What is my best option?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I've been skiing in a pair of Head Raptor 130s for the last two seasons.  I've put about 120 days on these boots, and at this point they feel loose on my feet, especially around the ankle.  They were properly fitted by a qualified boot fitter when I bought them, I have custom foot beds in them, and I have already added shims to take up some of the extra volume.  If I make the buckles tighter, I start to have problems with cramping.  Is it reasonable to assume that after 120+ days, the liners are worn out?  

 

If the liners are worn out, what would be my best option?  Locally, I have spoken to two different boot fitters, and they have both shown me different options.  One offers the Intuition liner, the other the ZipFit.  Other options I have considered would be to replace the liner with a replacement from the manufacturer, or to simply get new boots.

 

What would you recommend?

Intuition liners are less expensive than zips and warmer.  Zips typically provide a more solid fit and I'd say last longer but are more expensive. Factory you are already familiar with.  Zips will be firmer than factory, more expensive and longer lasting.
