For those with Thermofex liners...lookie

What do you think of this product that Daleboot has made...Heel nest & halter, it looks like it could fill some volume issues and also make the linet a bit firmer.

I didn't realize Daleboot still existed!!. In fact I thought Salomon bought them about 20 years ago. Have they been in operation all along?

I think the product looks interesting but you'd have to pay attention to how much it pushed you forward.

OK - I've been inquiring about this quite a bit. When you say "next year" do you really mean next season or do you mean in a few weeks?

Anybody try the new Zipfit's?

The Daleboot Halter looks interesting, but the Zipfit Pullover goes even further: http://www.zipfitna.com/pullover.html

I'm surpised that these products are targeted at thermoformable liners, which expand to take up a lot of volume and can be remolded if they eventually pack out too much. Some liner brands expand less than Raichle's, but I would expect the Halter and Pullover to be more useful with standard liners. Perhaps these devices will add some firmness around the ankles which some of the softer thermoformable foams may lack.

The foam in my Intuition liners is plenty firm, but even so I'm drooling over the Zipfit Plug Leather liner (despite the gaudy green color) to put in my Kryptons: http://www.zipfitna.com/products.html

Yes the DaleBoot heel nest and halter were around long before DaleBoot switched to their new heat fit liners. They've always had the best liners. I've been in DaleBoots for 25 years.

Do you think they would do any good in my Crossmax 10s? (Toes finally fit. Heel beginning to pack out)

If the heel is loose , snug it up with some sticky foam. make shapes like the L pads, or ankle wraps and apply to inside of shell, or try the L-Pads or ankle wraps that go on the liners. May have to reposition the pads or custom shape them depending on if they're too tight in area or not tight enough. The foam sheets further down are a bit thick at 1/8", usually start small with 1/16" thick but again you can dremel them thinner. maybe you have a good shop that has some boot foam and can help get you tight again with out pain. I put the foam on with only duct tape until I'm sure I have found the best position(no heel lift standing in skiis leaning forward) with out any too tight pinching anywhere. If you pad the back of the shell that will push your foot forward in the boot(tighter toe) pad just the side and behind and below the ankle bone that will hold the ankle bone down. Tognar has some stuff that could help http://www.tognar.com/boot_heater_warmer_fitting_dryer_canting_dryers_sk i_snowboard.html

There is a pad that is shaped almost identically to this except doesn't go up the calf as high as this product, that my bootfitter has been using for years, not quite sure what makes this product so special.
