Shin pain in Kryptons with ID liners.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have a pair of Krypton Cross boots with the ID liner. I'm using a "Booster" strap which I have tried both over and under the tongue. I only have 5 days of skiing on these boots.

I have skinny lower legs and feels like my shin bone is right under my skin.  I'm wondering if I can successfully spot heat just the upper portion of the powerwrap liner.  I think the upper buckle on my left boot was cranked too tight when originally molded.  My right shin isn't bad, but my left shin is in constant pain. It's still tender to touch a day after skiing.

I'd rather not have to remold the entire liner as the heel and foot area is perfect. I just think I need more volume in the shin area.  Will the liner expand if reheated?  I also read somewhere that they can be remolded with a thin piece of extra foam running down the sore shin bone to create a gap over the sensitive area. Not sure if that would work or not.

Any help would be appreciated.

spot heat the section as you need to.

So far so good.  I heated them with a heat gun. After 4 or 5 minutes the uppers started to expand.  After molding they seem to be at least 50% larger than before.  I think the original boot fitter really cranked them down.  I didn't pay attention as I was expecting it to be hot and painful for a while. It was.

Is there a definitive answer as to whether the "Booster" strap should be inside or outside with a power wrap liner? I have read both.

Thanks again.
