Big boots.

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I started skiing this year and got a pair of used nordica boots at a disconted price. They were only $30. They were a little big but I put my tennis shoes inside of the boots and now they are more comfortable. Now I want to know how to put material insie the top of the boot that goes against the shin. Does anyone have any ideas of what to put in there to make it a more tight fit?

...also I took out the soft liner part inside the boot and put my tennis in there instead of them as they were too big. The soft sock boot inside the hard boot was way too big.

I just know that when I took out the soft sock boot and put in the tennis shoes they fit well accept for the upper part of the boot that tighetns around the shin. I tried putting some socks in the upper part but they move around too much and I keep having to adjust them

I had a similar problem and discovered split foam pipe insulation at Home Depot! The foam comes in various thicknesses and can be cut to any desired length. Wrap the pipe insulation around your ankle/calf just before putting your ski socks on, and voila! perfect fit!

I heard you can also use two boards from a picket fence for skis, a little candle wax and youre good!

Flawed!! the split foam only comes in sizes that would fit twiggy. To fit a manly calf, you need the type that goes round larger steam pipes. It is fibreglass wrapped in paper. Soccer shin guards work well for me.

Got to the local Home Depot and get some of that expanding foam. Use the low expansion kind Place your foot in the boot with the liner in place and fill with the foam. Keep the boots on for a couple of days to make sure they fit ok. Then go skiing with your custom fit boots. You might have some troubles getting out of them but think of all the money you saved by not buying proper equipment.
Have you met Bonni yet?
