Breathe new life into your boots.

The Pro Tongue Liner is the stiffest tongue-style liner Intuition makes. It's made with Intuition's light and warm closed-cell EVA foam that can be worn right out of the box or heat molded for a precise fit. Reinforcements at the cuff and tongue offer a stiff and responsive feel, while an antimicrobial lining prevents them from stinking up the back of your car after consecutive days on the mountain. The liners come with removable 7mm shims, so they can be easily fit with a custom footbed.

Stiff but painful

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought these liners for my 27.5 Salomon Quest 120, as the original liners had packed out after 4 seasons.

After about 30 days on these liners this season (I did get them heat molded in a ski shop), they always hurt in one spot or another. Either it's my shins, or my ankles. Lately, I've started developing a hot spot between the heel and the ankle on one foot and it gets so bad all I'm thinking about is to take the damn things off. Another negative is the lacing system, which is sub-par. I have fairly narrow calves and I cannot stand when there's play in my boots at the shin, and with this antique lacing system, the laces loosen up pretty quickly. You'd think that the boa system would make it into ski boot liners, but apparently it is not available.

Anyway if I had to do it again I don't think I'd buy these liners.

Added a picture of what my shin looks like after a day in these liners, with a bump that goes away during the week and comes right back when I ski.

Great liner

I got these for a 27.5 shell and the fit perfectly. My old liners were wearing down too much and it was time to replace them. I picked these up because they are their stiffest resort side liner. They recommend that you take these to a boot fitter because they are pretty finicky.

Needs some work

    This is the first time I had tried an aftermarket liner. My previous liners started to feel a bit loose and I suspected they were packed out after two seasons (excellent head race boot liners). In retrospect, I probably should have tried to reheat and flow the old liners, but I guess I thought they were shot. So, on to the Intuitions....these are basically an old school flow liner that is designed, with their proprietary closed cell foam. The design is Federico to accommodate a variety of boot shells. Since I ski race boots, getting the into the shells at first is a tight fit. After that, carefully used a blow dryer to heat the mm which is not the recommended fit method but is the approved method at the

    Solid liner

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These liners are really solid. They mold excellently, are stiff, and are pretty warm for how thin they are. I probably should've got the wrap liners though because I have skinny calves. These really don't fill out the top of the boot if you have skinny legs which can lead to shin bang. You can work around this, but if you already have some room at the top of your boot with your old liners these will make the problem worse.


      I put these in my lange RX130LV's, and have had pretty good luck so far. I have added some L pads and boot board shims (1L, 2R), as i felt the heel pocket did not take as I wanted in the initial molding. The liners are STIFF, they will not break in to your feet, your feet break in to these liners. They have improved the skiing drastically over my packed out shells, but I'm still getting used to these even after about 10 days. As the other review states, the pressure I've been feeling on my shin increased with these, and feel the buckles a bit more. The jury is still out on whether or not I like skiing with the laces in or not, but overall I am impressed with these liners.

      Close but not quite there yet.

      The Intuition liners are warm and comfortable for standard recreational use. That said, I was hoping for more out of the ankle pocket and tongue. Having worked in the ski industry off and on for over 20 years, more specifically as both a custom boot fitter and ski race coach at an academy. I find this liner to be good for hiking, standing in the cold and casual skiing, however, when pushed, the tongue doesn't have a large enough contact area to work well with a standard overlap shell imho.
      On the plus side, the material is surprisingly stiff and molds well to the user's foot. Forefoot comfort and warmth are great as well.
      In a perfect world I would increase the height and width of the tongue and possible include a thin plastic layer on the outside of the tongue to distribute shin pressure more effectively.

      I have 28.5 Lange xc120 ski boots. Should I size up or down with the liner I order, as being they only come in full sizes?

      Hey Ian,

      For the Pro Tongue liner you want to round down, so you should purchase a 28.
