smelly boots

Owkey this is a weird topic nevertheless I need some input. I have the ride orion boots from 2-3 seasons ago orso. And the innerboot won`t dry anymore. It is just soaked wet after one day of boarding. I can put it above the heater for a night and it is still wet at the toes inside. This way it is very difficult lately to snowboard 3-4 days in a row.

I always wear just normal socks (never tried it really with snowboard socks) so maybe this is a reason. But putting this aside. Are there any tricks to do with your boots after a day tof boarding.

Are my boots getting old (just 40 days of boarding with these boots), or is this just me and do I sweat alot?

40 days is not alot on those boots.

You sure its all sweat? have you been riding in real wet conditions?

either way, invest in some SB socks. any brand will prolly be better than the athletic socks you are wearing, but i swear by smartwool.

i know from riding four wheelers that it's common for people to make their own hair boot dryer. find a PVC and a 30* pipe and drill 3/8 inch holes every square inch. then thread three hole where you plan on connected the blow dryer. acts as a tightening device when you put a bolt through. if your not handy, i heard newspaper stuffed in boots will take that moisture right out.

Are you removing the liner to dry it? That could help speed the process up if you arent. I cant imagine a boot being so wet that it cant totally dry overnight if on a heater vent...

1. Remove the liner. Moisture will just get stuck between the liner and the shell if you don't.
2. Place in a dry area with a heater blower.
3. Never let them "air dry" or store them in a moist environment. Bacteria and other various smelly microbes love these conditions.

yes I removed the inner boot right when I`m home. That's what you mean with liner, right?

socks are probably a good idea, hair dryer also. Gonna try that PVC tube aswell

Actually it all started when buying new bindings (rome 390s).
Since then I noticed the shape of my boots changed! It has become bigger (even one size). Because it is bigger, there is more place for the sweat to gets sucked inside the walls of the inner layer. Well that's just a theory.

So does it happen more often that boots don`t fit in new bindings. Is it because the shape of my boots where used to old bindings (Burton customs)? Or because my Ride Orion boots just don`t match 390s ?



PS: And my front toe starts to hurt as well with new bindings.

well the orion is a super soft boot and can be easily crushed

although your theory of the shape affecting smell doesn't have any merit

mirazyme by aquaseal used for wetsuits eats the odor

also use aquaseal wetsuit repair stuff to seal boots, repair rips in packs and lots of stuff, really sticks, flexible, and very abrasion resistant.
