Question about Boot Liners

Does it decrease a boot liner's longevity to take it out of the boot shell after every session?

This might sound like a dumb question, but I swear this happened with my old boots. It requires a bit of effort to take it out and put it in, and I noticed the material becoming a bit looser over time. Maybe my imagination.

I have a local shop that I trust. They have told me NOT to remove my liners unnecessarily. I would like to hear what other people have to say on this issue also. I read a post this weekend that said you should remove your liners. So, I am uncertain also

Interesting Gadget. I hadn't actually heard this anywhere, so good to know it's actually thought about.

My Factions are held in with velcro tabs, and i could totally see the tabs ripping loose if one wasn't cautious when removing them. That said, that velcro isn't doing anything when my foot is in the boot. I think as long as you open the shell all the way and grab the liner down low instead of yanking at the top, it shouldn't cause any damage at all. And the moisture left in there is going to do damage if not allowed to dry.

This is an interesting question, since I just bought some new 32 Focus Boa boots with liners. I've emailed 32. I'll post the response here.
