I'd like to get a custom liner done for my boots.  Can anyone recommend a
good place in the New York City/Long Island/Northern Jersey area?

thanks!

I would try Ski Barn in New Jersey.  They are located in Paramus on Route
17 and in Little Falls.  They are by far the best boot fitters that I
know.  I have had two beds made there and they both have been great.

Well, I've had conformable footbeds made there and the result is OK,
but I had to push them a bit to get enough attention, and it wasn't
even a busy day.

I'd try Emilio's Ski Shop in Forest Hills, Queens. They also run the shop
at Hunter. Their Queens location is a fast ride on the F train.

I highly recommend finding a good bootfitter near where you ski, so that
you can get the initial fit done, ski a bit, then go back in for gradual
adjustments which you can have tested. I had my last pair of boots fitted
locally, at Paragon, and they did a good job to start- but they had no way
to forsee the serious fit problems that turned up once I started skiing
the boots. I just got a new pair of boots while I was in Utah that fit
great- after three days of skiing on them and at least 4 hours total on
the bench at the ski shop.
