It seems over the summer the walls of my boot liner have fallen. They seem to have become unglued. Especially around the heel area. Thus they are very hard to get on and seem to pile up under the foot. It makes for a very tight foot. I assuming this means the end of my boots and time for a new pair.

Anyone else ever have this happen?

Sounds like they are goners. How old are they? Sounds like they are fairly old and probably were packed out anyway. IF they were not very old it may be a quality or storage issue. I would be concerned about both the shell and bindings if you got them at the same time and have stored them together. My buddy went skiing on his much too old boots last year and the shell broke apart leaving the footbed in the bindings. He had a cold walk down the mountain (I think he ended he getting a snowmobile ride from the ski patrol). When he went to get new boots the shop refused to set new boots up on his skis. They said he would have to buy a whole new setup. It irritated him because he is one of these guys who thinks things should last forever and doesn't understand the un seeable wear and tear equipment gets, particularly if not stored correctly with extreme heat. For me it would have been a great excuse to upgrade.

You can always buy after market boot liners. However if your boots are really old you might want to get a new pair. You can get intuition liners for just a couple hundred. --Tim

Not since early-90s Salomons.

What size liners do you need? For which boot?

Nordica have cheapo replacement liners for $25 that could work for you- look in their online store under accessories/parts/liners; otherwise someone might have a spare set around.

If you REALLY REALLY like your shells, and you want the best, try Daleboot or Surefoot. They make custom liners to fit your extremities and make your skiing sooooo comfortable... But as Bumps said, it would be my excuse to get a new pair of boots... At least one pair...

Visit or call the guys at Pro Fit and Skate in Leesburg (see thread below this) for recommendations or fix, or call SkiCenter in DC. If they do not know of a fix, no one will.
