Just ordered a pair of Gara LV's to go with my FT Dropkick Pro shells.
I've had my share of foot/boot oriented problems in skiing, to a point where I had to have 2 weeks break after every full day of park skiing in 2018-2019 season. This is fortunately history already and I've been able to use the Intuition wrap liners for almost a full season. This is a big deal for me as it most likely was the starter of long series of strain injuries, mostly on my then very weak peroneal (=outer shin) muscles (which was most likely caused by septal bulge a few years earlier) where the wrap style liners tend to make pressure points.
I really enjoyed the Dropkick Pro with the stock liner from mid-february to may. The upcoming season starts for me next monday and of course I checked the fit of my boots. I was surprised how different the feel was from when the boots were new, and was left wondering if there was a solution to the issue. It wasn't bad by any means, but it hasn't been superior at any point. Like good, but way from optimal. Always thought that this was normal for most people but still the thought of the ultimate fit has haunted me since day one of my skiing a few years back.
A day after that NS dropped the ZipFit liner review and I was like BANG! How I hadn't found these before? This is like tailor made just for me. I'm so sold to the idea behind it, especially in comparison to EVA foam liners.
For those not knowing what the fuzz of these god tier / end-game 400+€ liners is all about;
Cal Carson (& Giray Dadali) use these as well.
What are your thoughts/experiences about these? Can't wait to try mine in mid november when I get another week of skiing in.
