  1. Hi Jonathan,
    I’ve been researching Zipfit Boot Liners not finding a ton of info out there. Will you be doing a review any time soon? As always, a great way to enjoy my morning coffee. Keep up the good work and glad your back on snow! Tom

  2. Tom,

    While I don’t own a pair, I’ve been staring at them/handling them/(drooling) and know a few people that say they are absolutely worth it in terms of ultimate fit/product longevity.

    It DOES seem like a ridiculous price to pay for a neoprene/leather/cork liner (hence, why I still don’t have a pair), but the boot tech I know is on his 4th season and they still looks fantastic, you just refill/replace the cork as they get packed in, and they’re like new. If they truly last 8+ years as I’ve heard, it seems like a no brainer. They occasionally pop up on E-Bay (the ultimate place to buy ski gear that has been ‘used’ 1-5 days.)

    On a side rant… Can we talk about how crappy/cheap stock liners are on some of the most expensive boots? (looking at you Lange RS 140 lace-up faux leather, starting ripping after 10 days of skiing, liner…)
