In March I purchased a pair of Head Vector LTD boots at a store in South Lake Tahoe, and over the course of a few days skiing went back in a few times to have a custom footbed made, some punching to accommodate pronounced inner ankle bones (medial malleolus), and some padding added to the back of the liner. ( I have a very wide forefoot and somewhat narrow heel.) Got pretty close to a perfect fit, but not quite there, so before I headed back home to the east coast worked with another boot fitter at a shop in Berkeley who did some additional punching and grinding and also cut down the liner padding added by the guy in Tahoe.
The good news is after all that work I had a pair of boots that fit snugly, and I could ski in them all day, days in a row, in total comfort.
The bad news is I got home from a season-ending trip last week and pulled the liners to dry them before putting everything away for the summer, and the glue on the padding on the back of the liner had become unset/gooey, and the padding pieces still in place were falling off (or close to it).
Previously I'd pulled the liners out after ski trips to dry them, and hadn't noticed any problems. Weird that the glue suddenly failed. Anyway...
I don't want to put the liners back in the boots with the gooey glue as is, so I'm thinking the best thing might be to pull off the added padding pieces (that haven't already come off), clean the goo off with something mild like water and rubbing alcohol, and next season see another boot fitter to properly pad out the liner back heel area.
Sound good? Any other suggestions?
