Intuition liner / big toe stretch questions

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Two questions here.. I have a very low volume foot, not necessarily narrow, just low volume. I just got some Garmont Axon AT boots. Like every other AT boot I've ever been in, they have much more volume than I need. The shells are size 26 (8) and I have size 8 Intuitions in them. How much success do people have with putting a bigger liner (9 or even 10) in a boot to take up extra volume?

Question two... How much luck have people had with stretching the big toe on these types of boots (same plastic as the Garmont Endorphin, some sort of mix of polymers, not straight pebax or PU)? Its always been my understanding that pebax doesnt hold stretches well, but I dont know about this stuff. Also, assuming it holds a stretch like PU, how much big toe room can you expect to gain with a stretch (5mm, 10mm etc)? If I try on the 25 in the same boot, the volume is much better, but the toe room is seriously lacking (maybe a one finger fit, definitely not nearly enough room, especially because its a touring boot).

Thanks

tha larger liner can help a bit. Things like the zip fit pullover sleeve might help too and you can use the stock liner.
you might get a 5mm strech from the toe to stay, plus a bit of grinding. Just make sure that the heel is back all the way first, before you make toe room.
