Nice shell, liner not so much

Verified Buyer Reviewed by MNIAW from SSNY on Friday, June 22, 2012
I was struggling with some of the pros and cons and also describing myself. I've been an alpine skier for 40+ years but am just getting into touring so I rated myself a beginner. It's June so I obviously can't rate performance. These boots are insanely light but still feel substantial. I plan to use MFD plates and alpine binders to start but like the Dynafit binding capability with the interchangeable sole lugs. My biggest beef is with the liner. It really is way too small for the shell. I like a tight fit but the liners were much too short. A shell fit indicates that the shell is right but the liner is either mismarked (it says 27.5) or is just a poor size. I put my 27.5 Salomon Course liners in and my agony turned to ecstasy...I'll likely go with Intuitions down the road.
