The most comfortable and complete connection to your skis.
With proper foot positioning, circulation of blood flow reaches your toes and pressure points are eliminated.
Lasts a lifetime
Constructed with materials that improve with age, ZipFits often last skiers many seasons on snow. No planned obsolescence here!
Customized to your foot
A flexible toe box and customizable cork ports allow you to dial in the amount of volume for a fit perfect for your foot.
The combination of foot positioning and the OMFit responsive cork material we use promotes power transfer to the ski and precision control.
Fits any ski boot
With liners designed for extra low to high volume boots, select the liner that works and when those shells are worn down, transfer the ZipFits to a new pair of ski boots.
Handmade in Italy
For close to 30 years, ZipFits have been made by hand in Montebelluna, Italy with the best materials by the best boot makers in the world.
ZipFit founder, Sven Coomer was the first to use open and closed cell foams in ski boot liners, and the first to abandon these materials. He switched his focus to a natural product and developed a proprietary cork composite material called OMFit to use as fill in the liners.
OMFit cork responds dynamically to heat, flowing from areas of high pressure to voids in your void, better securing the heels and ankles.
Visualize throwing a cork at the ground. What happens? It bounces back. OMFit cork is incredibly responsive and has higher pliable strength than foam, so energy is transferred to the ski instead of lost to compacted foam.
OMFit cork is malleable and it doesn’t dry out. The added cork integrates with the pre-filled cork in the liner, putting the perfect fit in reach.
Cork comes from the bark of Cork Oaks. Cork can be harvested every 10 years, roughly 20 times in a tree's lifespan. Every time cork is harvested, the Cork Oak sequesters more CO2 regrowing its bark shield.

What people think
“I always had problems with my boot setup until I got into a pair of Zipfits. No more shin bang on hard landings and my heels don’t move so I have much more control.”
“I had always struggled with locking my ankle into place in my boots due to a low volume foot, so I tried a pair in a little ski shop in Verbier. Now a decade later I still use them in all my boots whether I am guiding on the piste or out touring or on expeditions.”
“In 2015 I bought a pair of ZipFits in Jackson Hole, added cork to the ankle pockets and seriously have never looked back. I wear a proper sized boot again instead of cramming into tiny sizes with tons of bootwork.”

Frequently asked questions
ZipFit is different and different can be intimidating. Find answers to some of your questions here or reach out to speak with us.
Yes. ZipFits position your foot correctly so that your ski boots don’t cut off circulation to your feet, this is the single best thing you can do to keep your feet and toes warm. Additionally, ZipFits feature a toe box constructed of neoprene, merino wool, and Thinsulate making for a far warmer fit that conventional foam liners. Neoprene naturally insulates, which is why surfers in the cold northern Atlantic use thick neoprene wetsuits. Pairing neoprene with thermoregulating merino wool and Thinsulate provide warmth without too much thickness, keeping your feet toasty without impacting your stability or reaction time.
ZipFits far exceed the industry standard. Unlike the thermomoldable foam used in competing liners, ZipFit’s OMFit cork composite material does not compress, meaning you’ll get a consistent fit and your liners won’t pack out, What’s more? You can add more cork to the ankles or tongue of the liner to dial in your perfect fit. Unlike foam injected liners that are “one-and-done,” you can tweak the amount of cork in your liners continuously and since ZipFits can outlast your shells, you can easily re-warm your ZipFits to make sure they fit perfectly in your new shells.
Yes, all ZipFits have a 30 day money back warranty as long as the liners show no more than 5 days of use or alterations. We want to help you get the right fit, if you buy a pair of liners and they’re not what you’re looking for after a couple of days on snow, we will work with you to get the right liner or give you your money back.
Yes, if there is evidence that you did not follow proper care instructions, or if it’s clear that you skied the liners for more than 5 days, this may void your warranty.
Orders typically ship within 3-5 days, if you want to request expedited shipping please reach out directly.
Many stock liners will change shape and “pack out” after 50-100 days on snow. ZipFit liners often last skiers over 300-500 days on snow. ZipFit liners with the cork composite fill are dramatically different from stock foam liners as the cork material doesn’t compress or “pack out.” Read through our testimonials to learn more about how many days skiers get with a pair of ZipFits and how much better those ski days are.
