Help : Full Tilt Liners Packing Out
yo I've been having some problems with my full tilts over time, when I first got them they fit well, were super comfy and kept my feet and shins pain free. Now I've skied on them about 60 days ish, ive noticed I've been having to crank the buckles up, they're feeling tight and I've started getting really painful shins. the only thing I can think of is the liners packing out, I've tried reheat molding the liners but this doesn't solve the problem. I'm pretty gutted that they're wearing out so fast. Obviously new liners are an option, but i don't want the same problem again, and since I live in NZ its pretty pricey to get them shipped here. Has anyone got any ideas what to do? cher
Liners will pack out unfortunatly and intuitions although awesome do pack out slightly faster. You can only expect about 100 day from an intuition.
There are things you can try though. Do you have any footbeds? If not you could start there. They will fill some of the volume in the boot meaning you can get a more snug fit without buckeling so tight. Volume reduvers coul also be added under the liner. Additional foam can also be added to the outside of the line to tighten things up.
Best at thing to do is take the boots to a boot fitter an have him asses the fit and recomend the best ways to make te fit more snug.
I have the same problem except my shins don't hurt just my feet.

Custom footbeds and replace the liner. If you have a good bootfitter, he might be able to get more days out of the liner with some of the tricks posted above.

I had similar issues with my first pair. Second pair I sized down a bunch 27.5 to a 26. So it initially fit surper tight which I liked. But it took like 30 days of riding before they stopped hurting. I got some middle of the line footbeds. Also make sure your buying one of their boots with the pro liner not the cheaper one. The pro liner doesn't pack out nearly as fast. I'm at like 350 days on them and there's minimal looseness. Buckes are only slightly tighter than when they were new.
It's really very informative that I wanted ever, thanks for this.Mobility And Accessibility For Everyone!
