Custom Molded Liners
Most ski boots come with a liner that the manufacturer has been made for that shell. Depending on the model, these liners can be mouldable and in many cases the fit is very good. However, for a superior fit, Boot Solutions offer three types of after-market custom molded skiboot liners: Fully injected foam liner; heat moulded foam liner; and cork injected liner. Each has its own advantages, depending on the end-result you are searching for.
Sidas Fully Injected Foam Liners
These liners provide the most accurate molding, and hence ensure that the fit is closest to the foot shape, however, they tend to be cold and hard on the feet.
Injected liners often take quite a bit of skiing in before full comfort is appreciated and so are generally not recommended for the recreational and occasional skier.
Intuition Heat Molded Foam Liners
These liners are the warmest and most general in fit. The impression that the liners take of the foot is good, but not as accurate as the injected type.
This type of liner takes the least amount of time to ski-in and can be very comfortable after only a short while skiing. These liners do well for people who don’t ski a lot, or whose objective is general comfort and warmth.
This type of liner is also a good option for people who like to do a bit of hiking, as they are usually seamless in design, ensuring that friction is minimised.
ZipFit Cork Injected Liners
These are a great option for people wanting a more accurate fit without the problems associated with foam injected liners. These liners tend to have most of the moldable material based around the mid-to-rear foot and on the shins, resulting in a good tight fit in the places where it is best to have maximum support whilst leaving the forefoot and toes free to spread out.
These liners are the least technical to fit and usually fully remoldable, meaning that if necessary the process can be repeated multiple times to get it right.
