What I was looking for

I was searching for liners with mostly comfort in mind. I really enjoy how the Intuitions Pro Wrap Liners mold to my feet using my body heat over time—even when I didn’t perform an initial heat-mold process. I use them in 99mm last-width boots, The Full Tilt Drop Kick Pro’s, and I really enjoy how lightweight they are, warm, and how the J-Bar heel wrap keeps my foot snug in place.

Why I chose this gear

I bought these liners because they came with my pair of Full Tilts and are the standard liner for not just Full Tilt boots, but other brands of ski boots, such as Scarpa, as well. They are easy to heat mold, providing me with a comfortable fit; they’re also extremely easy to get my feet in and out of while also being lightweight and warm.

What I love about them

  • Accuracy of Claimed Fit: I felt that the width and length of my 27/27.5 liners were perfect for the length and width of my boot shell.
  • Comfort: The Intuitions are very comfortable and offer a quick and easy mold for skiers at home. I put my liners in my oven on a wooden cutting block at about 170-180° for 5-10 mins before popping them into my boot shells and clamping them onto my feet. I then walk around the kitchen for a half hour until they cool. They are relatively low cost and super easy way to mold liners.
  • Weight: They are relatively lighter in weight since they’re primarily foam and made of a very lightweight, high-density material. My legs may thank these liners throughout the day and feel happier due to a lighter-weight boot setup.
  • Ease of use: The FT Pro Wrap Liners are super easy to get my feet in and out of.
  • Park: I love these liners in the park; they’re very forgiving and give me a cushion upon jump landings.
  • Backcountry: I take my tongues off my boots and cross my cables directly over my liners, which sometimes allows me more mobility going uphill. Great for mobility, poor for waterproofing.
  • Adjustability: I felt that these liners are fairly adjustable since I can wrap the liner around the shaft of my leg, however tight I’d like. They’re fairly versatile since they’ll work with almost any ski boot, but one would have to make sure their boot tongue can completely cover their liner.

Issues I’ve encountered

  • Flex: These liners don't offer much vertical support. But when I wrap them around my lower leg shaft and clamp the buckles down, I can feel the true flex of my ski-boot tongue and spine.
  • Durability: Not the most durable of liners; they pack out relatively quickly compared to Zipfit or other, more-premium ski boot liners. After I skied in them for 100+ days, my liners became a bit roomier on the inside due to the constant compression of my body weight.

Favorite moment with this gear

My favorite moment with the Intuition Pro Wrap Liners was when I took them on a backcountry hut trip. I used them in my boots without tongues on to increase my mobility. I was a bit skeptical at first but learned this to be a true hack after hours of hiking with my pack. We finally made it to the hut; I put my boots back together and dried my liners. Voilah—a new use arose out of necessity.

Value for the money vs. other options

I think that these liners are worth the money for several reasons. One is that they are not as expensive as others, such as ZipFit, and they’re super easy to get a custom fit. I was able to get my custom heat mold regardless of taking the time to mold it or not. They’re also super light and comfy, keeping my feet warm and my lower legs happy. I’ve never had shin bangs or bruised-up shins in part because I use soft boot flex in addition to these comfy liners with medium-volume, high-density cushions.

Final verdict

The Intuition Pro Wrap Liners unlock my boots’ baseline of comfort while still performing exquisitely on the downhill. Affordable, comfortable, warm, and lightweight while still giving me a customizable fit, these are some of my favorite liners.
