Intuition liners in salomon boots
Have pretty nice fitting salomon ghost 100's but the liners gettin a little dicey. Wondering if using intuition liners will be a good choice in these boots. Really the only concern I have is that the boots fit almost perfect rn but the spoiler that comes stock with the boot was being used and the intuitions dont have this option. Also I really like the lace feature too but I might have to reconsider. Has anyone done this before and is it a good idea
Threads as in the same boat with my ghosts
How old are the boots themselves (how many days)? The shells themselves also have a lifespan, so sometimes it is justifiable to get new boots entirely. Shells generally last around 150 days of skiing. Intuition liners generally between 75-100, so you may be able to justify as they could wear out at the same point in time.
It's also worth noting that depending on how dedicated you are to your boots, that when you get new boots getting a higher quality aftermarket liner. Intuition are on the low end of aftermarket liners. I have a pair of Zipfits, which offer considerable longer life than intuition - I have mine in my third pair of shells at the moment and are only just starting to show signs of maybe needing replacing in the future. They also have laces like you like. They are more expensive though, mine were $600AUD, about double that of a pair of intuition liners here.
Food for thought, but best to go see a bootfitter, who can advise you on all this based on seeing your boots.
To answer the original question - no idea.
Intuitions make a wide variety of lines, and have models that are the more tradition tongue type with laces. I use the Pro Tours in all my boots as Im not a huge fan of how the warp liners fit my shins. You can solve the spoiler issue by putting some self adhering velcro on the liner where you want the spoiler to stick. Works great on a set of my langes. Ive found intuitions to be some of the warmest liners out there. Beating out my old set of zipfits. I will say the fit of the zips is marginally better, but not enough to justify the increase in price.
