Dalbello Lupo / Dalbello boots packing out?
Sup NS, so I've been looking into boot for myself this next season, however I've yet to experience using/ wearing Dalbello boots. My question is, if you've owned the Lupo or any other Dalbello boot with an ID liner (Intuition), has the boot packed out over the course of the season? Any input would be much appreciated
I put 50 or 60 days on Lupos last year and they didn't pack out much at all. The liner is relatively thin for intuition. For comparison, I had some FTs back in the day and those packed out way more.
Boots packing out has far more to do with fit then the liner in my opinion. Liners pack out from feet moving inside and causing the liner to get compressed. The best way to minimize compression is to have the foot as still as possible inside the boot and have a good shell fit around it. To do this a good custom footbed is the best bet. This will limit how much the foot collapses and changes shape under load. If you can keep the foot in roughly the same position then the liner will not be packed out as fast.
