Default Heel lift statistics thread

I am very interested in this heel lift issue.

I have about half an inch of heel lift in every single boot I have owned including inline skate boots (various).

If I really slam the inner liner tight, its is maybe 1/4th of an inch.



Do you have heel lift?
How much?

Why would you buy boots that don't fit?

Had a heel lift issue with my 32 TM-two's which heat molding helped with, but since have switched almost exclusively to riding my DC Journeys (Alpha liners with beefy J bars), and experience none with those. I'll be buying the high end of the DC line from here on out.

Hmm, guess I have some narrow ass fet in the rear or something.

Never had boots that didn't have ANY heel lift.

I only have heel lift when I don't tighten the liner lock enough. I start to notice it about mid day and it pisses me off. Quick stop at the lodge to retighten it and I'm good for the day.

what boots do you ride? I had horrible heal life in celcius and burton, switching to solomon f24's seemed to correct the issue for me.

Burtons Imperial. But I think I might be overthinking things. I was just wondering. But since 11 people clicked option 2, I guess its normal to have a slight bit.

I have new 32's Not sure of what they are called. Very comfy and no lift.

I am interested to hear from the 3 people who use bacon. Do you use it raw or cooked?

I agree 100% i got some DC Ceptors and that alpha liner has some nice J bars, i love it, i get no heel lift at all with those boots compared to my older Burton Freestyles
