Good heads up. I'm tempted to pull the trigger on the Solution liner at 30% off and free shipping. Anyone use them?

I actually bought a pair late last season. Been meaning to write up a basic review of my impressions of them.

What with me still being fairly newb, (..read lack of extensive gear experience) I'm not exactly sure how much objective, intelligent, relevance my opinions about them would carry. But I haven't been able to read anything about them from others with more riding experience, so I figured it would be something.

They look and feel like a quality built, sturdy product. Two of my original boots stock liners feel soft and flimsy by comparison. There are some aspects of them I think one needs to consider when replacing the boots original liners,.. but after some adjustments, I like mine.

Have to go finish filming the review of the Liners. Not for everyone but a great solution.

My main issue in all boots not Salomon F series is heel lift. My issue with those is that they have a small toe box. That really doesn't bother me that much when strapped in the board, but if I'm doing much hiking it starts to suck pretty quick. I'd love a boot (or liner) that would offer a tight heel cup with a roomy toe box. My current Celsius Climates were doing fine up until about the 20 day mark and then the dreaded heel lift showed up.

The Solutions fit the bill for that or not?

Just get some 1/4" pva or something similar, cut a bit for under the heel part of your footbed, if thats not enough cut another bit for under the tongue (pull inner tight, put piece of material over the top and do up the boot)
A lil ghetto but worked for me, if you want to go full pro glue that piece to the inside of the tongue.

I've just tried all the ghetto tricks and j-bars and all that stuff and nothing seems to last long-term. It just leads to constant further ghetto rigging. It'd be worth dropping $84 on these if they'd solve the problem once and for all.

Linville,.. I'm in way too much pain right now to type too much, (missed my Vicodin dose!) but I can tell you, although my solution liners do have a pretty snug heel cup. They also have a fairly small toe box. That is the area I've needed the most adjusments made. I've heat molded and stretched mine to accomodate this. Do remember tho, I have a very high volume instep. I need wide shoes and boots, so this might not be the same problem area for you.

Also, I spoke with Remind before purchasing. I was told as long as they weren't worn riding. I could return them. So if this is something you will be able to feel in your feet right off? You probably won't be stuck with them. Hope that helps!

Might not be an issue for me. My foot is narrow in the heel and fairly average everywhere else. Definitely nowhere near wide anywhere.

As for the pain and meds, I'd be afraid to be on heavy pain meds long. Those things are hell on your body and terribs addictive. Note sure if marijuana is an option for you, but might be worth a shot.
