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.

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.
