How often are boot liners replaced in rental shops? and How often are boot replaced in rental shops

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Does anyone work in a ski shop that knows how often boots are replaced?  Meaning how often are old boots retired and new boots purchased?

Are boot liners replaced very often?

I'm guessing that varies significantly by shop, just based on being a customer.

Re liners I'd bet on not at all mainly.

At the shop were I work we do not replace liners, the boots get replaced every 2 or 3 years and some might stay in the fleet longer if they are sizes that don't get rented out very often as in size 13 or larger. Keep in mind that boots last longer than skis.

But smell worse.

(My son and I hiked the Virgin Narrows in Zion. We rented some very well used canyoneering shoes. The morning of the second day there was a horrible smell coming from where our gear was stashed. I had the awful feeling that the chemical poop bag the Park Service gives you to carry it out had leaked in my pack. But no, it was the shoes.)

All of our rental boots get sprayed with a disinfectant foot spray after use.
