A Note On Fit

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Just a quick note on the fit of these boots. This is a thermoform liner. It won't fit that well right out of the box, it needs to be heated (like an Intuition) in order for them to really fit well and conform to your foot. All of the other Cochise boots have normal ski boot liners that are designed to fit well right away. The Thermoform liners such as Intuition and Palau need to be heated in order to achieve and ideal fit. Same heating and molding instructions as an Intuition.

Hi C. Brown, I recently tried on the Cochise 120 but then ordered the Pro Light to save on weight. I assumed the two would fit very similarly since they are in the same line, and have the same last width and flex. However fit in the pro light toe box is painfully tight while the regular 120 was almost roomy.

Is my issue that I did not heat and mold these liners as one would with Intuition liners? Any help would be appreciated as my feet are sufferingggg

Yes the difference is the liner. You need to heat mold the light liner, it's not a traditional ski boot liner that is designed to fit right out of the box, it needs to be heat molded to your foot. I would recommend using a very large toe cap in these liners to make some more room for your toes.
