Dialing in some Intuitions

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I have worn some Lange 120 MF for a couple of seasons. My only issue is that the stock liners were extremely cold. Recently I picked up some Intuitions as they had a good reputation for being warmer. Because the Lange liners are very thin and I don't have a lot of room in the forefoot anyway I chose the Luxury Liner because it came in a low volume model (their recomendation). The forefoot fit is great and they are a lot warmer but I'm having issues with the heel area. The tongue on the Intuitions is much thinner than the Lange stock liner.  I had to reposition the top two buckles to try and clamp down more but I still cannot get enough pressure and my heel doesn't stay down as well as it used to. Any tricks to help this? The boot shell just won't get any tighter with buckle adjustment. Should I just shim the tongue with duct tape or what?  Thanks

sounds like a visit to a shop to buy your intuitions would have solved your problem, at least that way you may have got a liner which matched your foot shape/shell volume better, to make the best of something that isn't right one option is to shim the tongue with some foam padding or an eliminator tongue pad, that will absorb some of the excess volume but from what you describe it will probably not be a permenant fix

what is the boots shell fit like?  strange that a int liner would make the heel that loose,  usually the heel is better with them?

 

Eliminator tongue might help

 

moving the buckles over more (drill new holes if needed)

 

pad the liner

 

maybe the model of int liner was not the right one for you?  something thicker?
