I always take out the liners to dry, just makes sense to me.

i wish burton implemented some kind of adidas boost type cushioning in their boots. I love the way my ir Ions fit but would appreciate a thicker sole with more cush and dampening.

The El Mejors have a very similar fit to the IR Ions, but with a thicker sole. Flex is smoother and feels broken in from the start. Team boots are similar. I'd try Nitro boots if you get a chance.

Thanks. I’ve just scored a pair of Adidas Tactical Boost’s on the cheap, so will give them a try first. I expect them to break in into a nice medium flex, good, go anywhere boot, more freestyley (softer) than the Ion. El Mejors look interesting tho

Too much space inside the boot for me on those, quite different to the ions. Smooth flex though, hope they work out for you!

I don't see any reason why the toebox area of a boot shouldn't be roomy.

Comfort, pressure distribution. I can cramp my foot on heelside traverses especially if it's not relatively flush and moves about. Sometimes I like to do micro movements with my ankles without engaging the highback and like a shorter lag. Movement in that area might cause the liner in other areas to pack in quicker as well.

I like my boots to be snug everywhere. This is also one of the reasons I like running toe straps over the top, as it helps secure that area even more. I find it really comfortable, and I get more feedback through my feet. Occasionally I go back to cap-strap style for a minute, and the front of my boot and feet feel loose in comparison, in a bad way.

@alexxx I have both Tacticals that I bought new, have maybe 30 days on them(heatmolded and customized) and Ions(asian fit) which had 20-25 when I got them with no heatmolding or customization. The Tacticals dont break-in that easy and have almost the same flex when they were new. Ions on the other hand are softer than the Tacticals and way more comfy besides the boost sole which is amazballs.

I have the Ion with the ir liner. Still plenty stiff, I guess in big part due to the liner. I just wish they had the boost sole instead of that thin est one

Ion with boost sole is my dream boot
