depending on the volume of your foot it is possible to get the world cup zip fit into that shell, you need to have a little space around the ankle area, but one of the advantages of zipfit is you can try it in the shell with just a little heat if it doesn't fit with your foot then it is not an option

good luck

+1 There is now the slightly thinner "Special Edition" liner that is a viable option in a 95mm race boot. More then likely either the Special Edition, or the World Cup are the best bet for lower volume boots with slightly fatter feet.

However, Colin is correct, that discussing which Zip liner to go with is not relevant without knowledge of the foot that is going into the boot. If your foot is pencil thin, you would need a thicker model like the Grand Prix, if your foot volume is average, try the World Cup, and if your foot is on the meaty side, look into the Special Edition.

All that being said there is one other factor that has to be weighed. That is your tolerance for a tight fit. We cannot assess that via this forum.

One of the upside factors to choosing on the thinner side, is being able to add more cork/oil mix to "fatten" up the thinner liners.

If you choose one that is too tight, some cork/oil material can be removed, although not easily and not too many out there have the patience or the skill to perform the task.
