MeanJoe J-bars will most likely solve your problem. Go to a local shop and see the boot-fitter. Let them know you have heel lift and they'll most likely slap some j-bars on the liner for you and you'll be good to go.

That being said... there is probably also a portion of this coming from the fact they are Burton Motos. I'm not trashing them, I rode them for years. But really, they're an incredibly soft and low-end snowboard boot with the most basic of liners.

And THAT being said... even expensive boots sometimes need some tweaking from a boot fitter. Higher price does not always equate to a perfect fit right out of the box.

zk0ot Get fitted. Don't just get a boot the same size as your shoes. Number 1 no no.

CassMT heel lift in not to be tolerated, try 32's with the inner heel lace system

unsunken A lot of it is fit. Some boots have extra padding near the heel to try to hold it in place. If you still get heel lift, you can always add j-bars.

I dunno is it? Maybe try some of the DIY mods in the sticky, or here is the link

There is probably a boot out there that is perfect for you, but it's pretty much down to trial and error and luck that you find it

Less Heel lift

I'm going to finish the season with my Burton Moto's, but Looking to next year id like to get a better quality boot with less heel lift. Any thoughts? Is it just a fit issue no matter what boots i get?
