Default Where the J-Bars at????

So I've been boarding like nuts lately, and I'm starting to get some redonkulous heel lift... everywhere I go I ask if they have any J-bars and they say 'no'. EVERYWHERE!! I've been to like 5 shops, like 8 different mountains, but they say they dont have any Jbars?? WTF IS THIS!?!?!

So I'm in need of some J-bars whether it be ordering online or making them home made, idc, i just need something/anything to get ride of heel lift.

could i just like tape some sponge or something onto the ankle area on the liners orrrrr....?
help would be nice.

1) Call Burton
2) Ask for J-Bars
3) Check your mailbox

I'm sure they could tell you when you try to order them.

Under $60 by mail is free, I believe.

Hit cbsa.gc.ca

Most stores that do boot fitting will have JBars, but you'll probably have to ask....they're not always a bubble pack item.

Just go down to your local hardware store as them for some foam that has a 3m adhesion on the other side of it and cut out the shapes you need. It's pretty damn easy.
