Boots Getting Wet inside?
 
Hey, my season is pretty much over as of today =( but like the last maybe 5-6 times i have gone up i noticed that when i took my 07-08 Burton freestyle boots they were wet inside, like most of the liner was damp and my socks were soaked, but i never really noticed it being cold cause my feet were so warm in the boots it just makes the water warm. Now... the real question... i'm not sure if the water is getting in or it is just staying in from my feet sweating all day and i'm using an absorbent enough sock or what? The outside of parts of my boot may feel wet, but i think this is just cause i have been ridding slush all day but yeah, it just had me worried that my boots have gone bad or sumthin, cause i plan on using em next season, but in the early season it's gona be cold and hopefully my feet don't freeze with this wet thing.

If anyone else has had this problem please feel free the help me out =)

fyi, im just using normal high addidas socks, not really thick or ne thing, and not "Snowbaording socks"

Yeah, I have the same problem. I wear a regular sock and my feet sweat so by the end of the day my boots are wet. It doens't really bother me in the early season, I'm able to stay warm.

Very good chance it's just snow kicking up into your boot...also, there are certain parts on top of the boot where snow/water can get in...I have the same problem, but I think it's mainly because it's slush season.

I think it's the socks man. Basic cotton athletic socks will absorb moisture and hold it in. That's why your socks are getting soaked. Proper snow (ski, snowboarding, whichever) are usually made from wool, or a blend of substitutes for wool, which wicks moisture away. They're not perfect, but you won't have that saturated sopping wet feeling.

Also, feel free to yank out the liners out of the boots so they dry faster.

yeah, ima have to try to get some snowboarding socks next season and hopefully they don't get soaked lol. does ne know if they help with heel hold ne? cause after some real bumpy slush runs i start getting heel lift, and have to really crank down on my liners to get it to stop, and even then i still get a tiny bit of lift, ne solutions?

Your boots too big.

i have 10.5s and 10s really are too small for my feet, keep in mind these boots have had two good seasons on em, and i have a feeling that the heel holder has just lost it's shape, but i was just wondering if ne1 has had snowboard socks help w/heel lift?

A 10 and a 10.5 in that boot are the exact same. Like I said boots too big and packed out now.
