Has anyone used the intuition liners (tall alpine version) in their AT boots? I got a set from my local shop and when I slip them into the AT boot shell they fit great but are at least 3" taller than the boot shell. I'm sure this will add some stiffness, that I don't really want. Has anyone used these? Is there any chance that I could shorten the upper cuff so that it does not protrude so high? Thanks.

I've used a couple of them since about 2000. I love them. Superior fit and comfort. Make sure that you have good footbeds. I slip into my boots almost like slippers. It's very key to get them fitted properly. I'd recommend finding a good bootfitter and see if he thinks they could be cut down - I'm pretty sure that's do-able. But try them as is first - see if you like them as they are - you can always cut them down later.

Thanks Tim. I had read others posting that they did not get them moulded at first, but rode them a few times and they really liked them. I have my custom insoles in them and will give them a shot. They are comfortable, but snug. Not sure how long until they pack out, but they seem really nice. I'm just a bit concerned about the height. Thanks again.

I use intuition liners in my Deluxe soft boots (The Choice?)
I don't think the added height would add stiffness, since the liners are so soft when unsupported by a shell. My liners do rise above the top of my shells, but there is no problem with stiffness.
Certainly get them fitted by a pro.

Also, If I remember correctly, intuition sell liners in 3 heights if you're worried about that. Alpine has the highest cuff of the three.

LBR, thanks for the info about your liners. I will get them fitted by the pro as soon as I can make it to the store. Thanks.

Storn, the source I got the liners from only had the alpine, so I got the highest version. I guess if that does not add any real stiffness it is not a big deal. I need to get my boot shells, insoles, socks and liners to the store to get them heated up and done right. Thanks.

So many people have plugged the intuiton liners that I figured they must be one of the best options.
