Anti-Heel Lift Straps

Hey,

I've been using a pair of Burton Ions for several years now and I've always had a problem with my heels lifting up in the liners. I'd love to get a new pair of boots, but I'm just too poor for that right now.

I've heard people mention anti-heel lift straps as a solution. I think they're straps that wrap around the heel of the liner, keeping your feet from lifting up off the floor of the liner. I've searched for them online but I can't find them. Does anyone have a link or suggestion?

I've also heard you can insert foam wedges behind your akilies heal.

dakine used to have "heel anchors"

go to local performance ski/sb shop and ask for some sticky foam and make "c" or "j" or "butterflies" or just take your boots/liners and they will fit you with the above foam patches for a couple of bucks or a 6 pk of micros
