Meh, isn't that what 3D printing is for? 

 

 

Meh. . . who said I wouldn't use that to make them? Given that the number of skiers who own a 3-D printer is probably pretty low still, I'd still make money.

Given that the number of skiers who own a polyurethane 3D printer and have access to thermoplastic urethanes that include anti-UV and antioxidants and are harder than an indoor skate wheel is awfully near zero - you'd make more money than you think.

Maybe the flex characteristics for polyurethane are not exactly the same for all temperature ranges or as well suited for ski boot use

so....I got new pair of Nordica ace 1 boots.  of course they are cheap SH#$% plastic on the toe and heel!!  well... I spent $200  way less than I expected...so that's a plus

 

They are comfortable boots but the fit is same as my 20 year old boots....so again no reason for this...except that ski manufacturers want to rip off the consumer.

 

well I'm gonna buy a few sets of toe and heel replacements...which I expected to come straight up in google search...of course they didn't!!  considering this is 2015 boot!

 

again another waste of time for me to search for toe and heel replacements

 

if anyone can recommend a place for these toe and heels ...and not plastic...would be helpful.

 

I certainly hope the ski industry wakes up and starts making better quality products!

 

cheers!
