Last year, I invested $250 in a pair of SanMarco custom boots. I don't
like them. Much much too heavy!!! I have a lot of foot problems, so I
really was hoping that custom boots would be the solution. I'm able to
return them, since I have about 4:38 total ski time on them! (One crummy
day at a "local" ski spot last season).
This year, I'm considering the Raichle Thermo-flex custom liner. Anybody
have them? What kind of comments are there about them? They were
introduced mid season last year, and only in Utah or Idaho, I think. At
the Cleveland Ski show this weekend, I spent some time conversing with a
Raichle rep, and I was impressed. They offer the liner by itself ($150)that
is formed to anybody's boot model; they will also offer the liner as an
upgrade to a new Raichle boot. I have a pair of rear entry Nordica's from
3 years ago, and I like them. I wonder if I should spend the $150 for a
liner for my Nordica's or go a step ahead and get a new front entry boot
from Raichle using the money refunded from the San Marcos.
Any advice would be appreciated!! Please Email me, since I no longer have
the luxury of extra time to peruse the postings...
