Our ski community depends on our ski patrollers, avalanche techs, and mountain operators – this liner is designed to make a day on your feet all the more enjoyable. We added a new level of durability to the unmatched performance and comfort that ZipFit ski boot liners are known for, as a special thanks to those working first chair to closing sweep.

Once I figured out on how to correctly and quickly slip in the liner into the shell it was easy. The liner is providing an excellent snug fit and is SUPER COMFORTABLE, much better than the original liner that came with the boot initially. Even after being in the boot for over 8 hrs 4 X a week no complaints. Would recommend this liner to anyone that is wearing ski boots often and for several hrs. Great product.
Great fit can turn on a dime. Cuff could be higher volume. Very difficult to put on. Amazing once they are on
Ski boot shell: Crispi WC Tele 26.5 Lower leg and foot volume: normal, wide higher volume forefoot Skier type: Expert What works or doesn't work for me: Zipfit provides excellent feel and improved performance both in my telemark boots and alpine boots. Best skiing upgrade I have had in years. Noticeable performance over stock or intuition liners. Never going back.
Another great offering from Zipfit. While I've only had a handful of days in them so far, I think they are built even better than my previous Zipfits - if that's even possible. This is my 4th pair of liners from Zipfit. My first pair were the foam injected version back in the 90's. In 30 years, I've only worn out 3 Zipfit liners and I work on the hill logging over 70 days annually. Maybe not the best business model :-) but these things are bomber. And there is no comparison to the moldable cork filling. Hand down the best fitting liner you'll ever own. They may be expensive up front but are unquestionably the best value of anything else by leaps and bounds. The fellas that answer the phone are very knowledgeable and will help you pick the right liner for your foot and skiing style. Don't hesitate - get a pair now!!
It all comes down to user preference.
Are you willing to lace up your liners and step into your shells before every use? Our leather lined ZipFits require this move, while our neoprene lined ZipFits are easier to step into. If your answer is “no way” – we suggest the neoprene ZipFits.
Leather offers a true to form fit meaning your ankles and shinbone will imprint into the leather, securing your lower leg and foot to the ultimate degree.
Neoprene has more natural cushioning, so while you can still get an excellent fit, they have a more forgiving feel when skiing.
Both interior liners can last a LONG TIME with proper care. While we think of leather as more durable, we know of a pair of neoprene liners with 1500 ski days.
For precision fit and performance, the leather has a slight advantage.
For ease of use and all mountain comfort, the neoprene has a slight edge.
Ski boot liners will dry better if removed from the shells, but what about the wear and tear of removing the liners and then stepping back into the shells? We recommend removing your ZipFits from the shell after skiing to unlace them and let them dry and then using the Ski Boot Horn to assist in stepping back into your shells. The Ski Boot Horn dramatically reduces the wear on the backs of your liners and by lacing your liners up prior to stepping into your boots will ensure that your foot is properly positioned.
Certainly, but take note that if you make an incision in your liners for boot heaters, that will void your 30 day money back guarantee. We recommend skiing in your liners for a week or so to ensure they are the right size and model before you add boot heaters. Additionally, heated socks perform well and don’t require altering your liners.
Yes, if you alter your liners or make any incisions to them in the first 30 days, it will void your return policy.
Great question, we built out an entire Care and Repair section to help our customers keep their ZipFits skiing longer.
