      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Intuition Liners

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, I have a pair of scarpa omegas that, being bought in the fervor of reduced prices online (thanks STP..), are a little big. I didn't think it was a problem till I took out the liner and put my foot in; the boot is probably (at least) a half size large..anyway, does anyone have experience with intuition liners? Besides all of their benefits, are they beefy enough to fill a (half size) too-big boot? The only way to know is to go check it out, I'm just curious if anyone has resolved a similar problem with this solution.

Thanks!

-Max

I have intuition liners and I don't think it would be any problem to get them to fill the extra half size. I would take the boots to a local boot fitter and get the final word from them, but I doubt it would be a problem. I used Martin at Sturdevants in Bellevue and the liners are working great.

Thanks, I went to OMC in pdx and she basically laughed when I put my foot in the shell without a liner...so I just need a smaller boot. Bummer

How much space do you have behind your heel when your toe is touching the front? You generally have to run the Omegas another size larger to accommodate the thicker Intuitions to begin with...

Not quite sure but ~2 fat fingers would fit...I tried an intuition liner in it but it was still a bit sloppy with too much heel lift. I'd rather have a small shell then bake the liners so they're snug...oh, the long-term price for an online bargain!

even if you go get your intuition liners fit in person at the factory store they will start duct-taping on wedges of extra foam here and there to get the snug fit and no heel lift. Get an old foamy and some tape and start experimenting yourself. Pads on either side of the achilles taped on the OUTSIDE of the liner might lock your heels down. Get some thin shims jammed up inside to fill up toe volume etc.
