1000-Day Liners: 23/24 ZipFit Collection | Blister Summit 2023 Video

At Blister Summit 2023, we sat down with Chris Dominick, Managing Director of ZipFit, to cover the origins and legacy of the brand, as well as all the new models and updates they’ve been rolling out lately. We discuss their newest Corsa race liner, GFT touring liner, & leather Workhorse; how they go about making liners that can outlast (and be customized to) multiple boot shells; how they’re combining the hard work of their founder, Sven Coomer, with input from athletes, and much more.

  1. I’ve been skiing ZipFit Gara liners for 3 years and it’s the one piece of equipment I couldn’t imagine skiing without. My feet are 113mm wide so my boot choice is severely limited and still require a great deal of punching. The Gara liners increase performance and comfort and performance, and yes I meant to write performance twice. :)

  2. I have a pair of Zip Fit Tours. Honestly I ended up going back to my Intuitions. My foot is super wide and the liner toe box was way too narrow for my feet. The neoprene did not stretch enough and constricted my feet causing extreme pain mid way during tour. Another draw back is they add quite a bit of weight to my boots and you really notice it at the mid way of a long tour. They just were not for me.

  3. Question: my zipfit was a very early model without lacing (I think) & current innovations. I loved them until they literally got too smelly to use. Tried other boots & other liners & have NOT been happy. I am now 77 & want to get back to the comfort, support & warmth of the zipfit. Are basic models still being made for recreational skiers (specifically folks of senior status)??? Le Feet Lab of Winter Park introduced me to the joy of zipfit. I live in Pennsylvania north of Philadelphia. Are there any Jacque-like boot fitters in my area? If need be, I will go to WP, but would rather not. Help!! I want to again enjoy a 23/24 season.

    • Hi Linda,

      I am glad to hear ZipFits have worked well for you in the past. There are recreational liners in ZipFit’s lineup that will still provide the benefits you enjoyed from your old pair. Depending on your shell, I would recommend looking at the Gara (either LV or HV depending on how much space you have in your shell). I don’t know of anyone selling ZipFits in the Philadelphia area, however, I have confirmed that two of our Blister Recommended Shops that are most proximal to you, could help you get fit and molded if you were to bring in a new pair: either Hickory & Tweed in Armonk, NY (call & ask for Mac), or Willi’s Ski & Board in Pittsburgh (call & ask for Ben). And if you do make your way to CO, please get in touch, as there are several shops on our Recommended Shop List that stock and sell ZipFits. Hope this helps!

  4. It would be great to see an article/review comparing the GFT to the Gara liners in 50/50 boots. I’m trying to decide between the two for some ’20 Fischer Ranger 120s that I do some resort based tours and use to access hike-to terrain. I’ve seen mention that the Garas are tour-able for shorter outings, but how much downhill performance am I sacrificing if I jump into a GFT that I use mostly in the resort?
