Summer custom liners or boot-fitting in Denver

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

My wife and I are wanting to get custom liners made for our boots. Can anyone recommend a good place to get custom liners made in the Denver Metro area.

I have Nordica Trends and the wife has Solomon Evolutions. This is a process I am not familiar with. Do you need to take your boots in when you have this done?

Is there any type of liner that is better than another? The wife and are are in early 40's and do not extreme ski. About as wild as we get are the glades and some easy bowls.

Thanks for any responses.

I don't know anyone in town who does this. Precision Ski in Frisco sells and forms Intuition (Thermofit) liners, which I have and really like- warm, comfortable, very light weight, and great performance. Jeff Bergeron in Breckenridge does masterful custom boot fitting and footbeds (he did most of the work on my boots). I don't know who does Zipfits around here- they are also popular (maybe Surefoot? They have shops in Breck, Keystone, Vail). You may want to start with an evaluation by a good bootfitter, who can help you figure out if you are in the right shell to begin with.

Any good bootfitter should be able to put aftermarket liners in your boots for you. yes, of course you have to have your boots with you. (you're kidding right?)
You can check the list here at Epic for some suggestions on bootfitters in the area. there are many, many, many, especially if you're willing to drive to the mountains, but i'm sure there are some in Denver proper too. Don't forget custom footbeds while you're at it. even more important than the liners unless the ones you got with the boots are totally shot. be prepared for the bootfitter to tell you that you have the wrong size shells... lots of folks, including me, err on the side of too big.

See Larry!

Go see Larry's Boot Shop in Boulder, He is the best fitter on the planet and always charges a fair price. Plus, he may even offer you a beer while your liners are cooling!Say hello from Kris!

Thanks for the tip. I will try and get up there in the next few weeks.

Jeff Bergeron in Breckenridge is considered one of the best in the country. He also gives advice here at Epic gratis.

Larry's is excellent. Also Lee at Moutnian Miser in Englewood is great

Larry is such a nice guy and a great boot fitter. Can't go wrong. Make a night out of it. Come up and have a beer or eat at Frasca if you have the $$.

Larry fixed my boots and my wifes. When she got new boots Larry, after looking at her feet and talking to her about her skiing, said he didn't have the right boot for her. So called around and sent her to Christy's for the boot and came back for expert boot fitting. She never had such a good fit - except for me :

I don't know what happened or where the staff ended up. I was told that one day they simply didn't open for business again, and had cleared out all of the inventory.

Lee opened a stand-alone shop on South Broadway in Denver

thecustomfoot.com

Highly recommended.

Good for him, he was great. I'm partial to Larry, but Lee was top notch. We should make sure that both of them are listed in the bootfitters thread.
