Tools of the trade 3 - Modifying liners

Updated: Jun 29

As boots get used, it is common for them to get looser in the heel pocket. Rather than replacing the boots or liners, we often recommend adding padding to the stock liners. The key here is the padding needs to be FIRM, as in much firmer than the spongy padding that is typically used by the industry. This photo shows how we add padding to the heels (and in this case, behind the calf). Note that we custom shape these pads to your feet and liner, rather than being a pre shaped product. Adding padding to the heels generally costs around $30-40 per pair of liners, and in many cases, adds years of life to the boots.
