Thanks. I agree, I'm not expecting the liner to fix a basic fit issue, it's just that I noticed the boots felt much better with a little time in them. Granted, I only have about three hours in them so far.
The only fit issue or pain that I experience skiing in them is both arches, and the fifth metatarsal phalangeal joint on my left foot. I only notice this when I'm standing still. On the lift they are O.K.
After about an hour in near zero degree temps my big toes began to hurt, but I think this was the cold, not the fit, as I can wiggle my toes in them.
I'm using the stock foot bed, which is next to nothing of a foot bed. I have an off the shelf foot bed I use in my regular boots which provides some support. I may trim it to fit the Dobermann and try it out.
