Fill tilt dropkick 2015/16. New boots or liners?
I bought them as my first pair of boots, they're 27.5 and used to fit perfectly. Since then I've skied two full seasons (everyday for 20 weeks straight) and the liners have been recooked to death.
They no longer fit as well (some moment in the heel) and they're not as warm as they used to be.
I don't know a huge amount about boots so was wondering if it would be in my interest to find another boot that fits or buy a new liner like "Full Tilt Full Tilt Pro Liner 2018 white"? Money is a consideration but I'm heading back out for a another season so warmth/comfort takes priority.
Thanks for any help
I'd say if it is probable that the shell and buckles with last at least another full season then get the liners. If they are sketchy and soon going to break I would get new boots.
I'm facing a similar dilemma with the soles on my boots - I don't know if it's worth buying new soles because I will probably buy new ones in the next few years.
Same thing happened with my 13' Booters (Which I still wear). Get some military wool socks. Warmth won't be an issue and your foot will no longer move around in the boot because they are thicc as hell. By far your cheapest way to extend your boots' life.
If you can't find a screaming good deal on a new pair, you could just buy a new set of liners for 'em. The Performer liners that came with the boots are decent, or you could step up to Pro liners for better longevity and a slightly stiffer flex.
