I need a name Update. Problem solved. Threw foam on top of my foot and kept the outer shell completely loose. LOVE these liners. Really stiffen up the boot and improve control.

Not completely perfect as my toes go numb due to lack of circulation at lunch time, but I can easily pull the boots off for a minute and im back to 100%.

I would be putting them in K2 Thraxis (triple BOA) if that matters.

I have a dealer nearby that can sell/fit me, but he obviously has an interest in selling them, so if anyone has negative (or positive) experiences, that would be good to know. I already have custom footbeds but I don't know if they're helping or hurting. They definitely didn't solve my problems.
I've tried having a shop put those exact liners in a snowboard boot. Unfortunately the molding process doesn't work for crap in a softshell boot. The shell is less rigid than your feet are, so rather than the shell putting pressure on the liner and therefore molding it to your feet, your feet are putting greater pressure on the liner and it molds it to the shell.

If you had a really tight shell fit you could probably make it work, but most snowboard boot shell fits are really loose compared to what you'd see in a ski boot.

jtg Their site says they are also for snowboard boots and several of their images show snowboarders. Also, my stock liners have no laces, just a powerstrap. The boots do have BOA conda though.

Not a problem for some snowboard boots. My TM2s have the inner laces attached to the shell... no laces on the liner. Really effective, i must say.

Maybe the Thraxis are like that too?

tonicusa Just take your Reminds out. The top of your foot hurts because there isn't enough volume in the boot. My reminds are a lot chunkier than the inserts that come stock with my Kaiju. After a week or two of hard riding the top of my back foot can get sore. I just take the Reminds out for a few days and ride the stock footbeds.

I have flat feet (though not wide) and metatarsal pain. I'm considering something like this, though I've already had 2 sets of orthotics made and they aren't helping. Is this doctorsfootlabs.com? If so, which product? Did you do the $200 custom option and talk to the doctor there?

I need a name Pain persists. Trying a different thickness foam.

I need a name I'll try the foam under the red section. It's the tongue of the shell getting pulled down into the liner by the boa dial.

The best option for me at this point is to throw as much foam on the outside of the liner as physically possible to get a strangulation type grip around the ankle while maintaining a wide toe box. This way, I don't have to tighten the shell at all, just enough to keep my liner in place.
