Dallbello Bo$$ boot question

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

my boots are 3 years old and seem to fit fine and my feet stay comfy all day.   In the last 3 seasons I have skied in Utah( 42+58 +58 = 158 days) which is not bad for a Florida boy.     

Everything I read says I am over due for liners~~~~   so --
----- is this true??
---- if so --  what kind of liner would you reccomend 
--- how often should you replace liners and boots

Thanks

Probably lots of opinions on this.  Liners are typically considered good for around 90 days, but if they are still in good shape, don't smell to high heaven and your fit is still solid I'd say they are still good.

 

If you wanted to try new liners, there are two primary ones.  Intuition and Zipfit.  IMO Intuitions are primarily for added warmth and Zipfits make for an even more solid fit.  The moldable cork makes for a firmer more responsive fit that doesn't loosen during the day and they can last hundreds of days without packing.

I see up to 200 days use out of a boot if a person is not exceptionally big and skis in a normal fashion.  Lou nailed it with the 2 good options.  Palau is a European manufacturer of a liner very similar to the Intuition.

Experience has shown that when the liner is no longer resilient from use, the shell has also suffered degradation.  It is worth trying a new boot to feel the difference.
