Out of all of them, the best for narrow feet are ThirtyTwo and Salomon.  I swapped the liners in my Vans Verse right away... too soft and a bit too roomy.

I also have narrow feet, and I have never heard thirtytwo described as good for narrow feet. I actually have a pair of TM-2 Scott Stevens colorway boots from three? years ago that I gave up on after less than 10 days because the liners immediately packed out so wide that I could shift my entire foot around inside them - though my toes were still pressing against the end. Widest boots I have ever owned.

For my narrow foot, Burton and Salomon have the narrowest fits - especially now that nike is out of the mix.

I also have narrow feet, I only tried Burton, K2 and Salomon...

Salomon is the best of the 3, for narrow feet, IMO... but every feet is different

I have really narrow feet and need size 11 ThirtyTwo, 10.5 Vans, Flow, K2 and Adidas, and 10 in Salomon and Ride.  DC are no fit for me... I kinda fit 10.5 but get too much heel lift.

But from Adidas I only tried the Blauvelt. Haven't tried the newer fancy ones...

Yeah i hear that all the time (ThirtyTwo not good for narrow feet). But my experience has been the opposite, by far the best heel hold. They do pack out, and I have to add jbars after a while, but most brands I need jbars from the start. I've had TM2 and Prime in size 11, and had a pair of Focus Boa 10.5 that I had to sell because they were killing my feet (way too tight on the toes and cut off circulation above my arch - it was a nightmare).

Burton boots all fit very different. The Ions fit different than Imperial, SLX etc. Imperials fit me the best, but are kinda soft. Ions are way too wide on the toes.  I tried Malamutes and they were also too wide on the toes, but great on the heel. I was very close to getting Malamutes, but I was able to get the Vans working better with my custom liners.

I have high volume Intuition Luxury liners... they are awesome. Super stiff and 0 pack out, plus I just swap liners into new boots and fit is perfect right away. They cost almost the same as new boots, but you can reheat many many times and they have a lot of hard reinforcement, so I can see them lasting more than just a few seasons. 

Ah, also those older ThirtyTwo liners were terrible (the ones that weren't branded by Intuition). They changed them and the newer (since a couple yrs ago) have Intuiton foam. Much better.

Yeah dude, Intuition liners are a must.  They have two new ones for this season that I am eyeing, the new Tour Wrap, which is like a power wrap, but with a little neoprene bit to facilitate better rearward flex when touring in ski boots, and a new snowboard-specific liner designed by Mark Fawcett.  The latter looks fucking amazing.

Killing the toes is the issue I have with all ThirtyTwo boots. I have super wide toes, with a super low and narrow ankle. In order to wear Vans shoes ( or any vulcanized shoes ) I have to go up at least a full size just to accommodate my toes. That why Ride boots have worked so well for me. Super roomy/wide toe box, yet low in the forefoot/midfoot and super narrow in the heel. Plus, intuition liners. The Trident has the power wrap, which I love.

Interesting. My foot width measures out at a 13.5 A or AA on a brannock, and while my forefoot is narrow, I have especially sharp, narrow heels and a high arch. On my foot, the 2015 thirtytwo TM-2 (purple Scott Stevens colorway) with level 3 intuition liners in size 13 almost immediately packed out to be too wide, including the heel. I tried j bars and adding other bootfooting foam, but couldn't get rid of heel lift or reduce the lateral volume enough to stop my feet from shifting side to side in the boot. The sheer volume of the boot shells seemed to be much of the issue, and I did experience that, while the overall length of the boots was similar to the nikes, burtons, and salomons that I have had over the last nine or ten years, the exterior heel and ankle volumes were massive. I really had to push my heel into the heelcup of my bindings, and the ankle straps on my bindings had to be adjusted out to the last hole in order to get them to fit.

I find that the recent, 2017-2019 burton SLX and ion fit similarly on my foot in a size 13, while the driver, imperial, and photon having slightly wider heels. Interior length in size 13 on all seems to be similar.

Sometimes you've just got to get super aggressive with the boot foam.

With these mods, my foot is locked in like a cast, yet still totally comfortable.

That's the one I am going for as my next liner. I've already been using a super high wrap style liner for many years with a custom powerstrap. Never going back to low regular tongue stock liners.

@pow_hnd I haven't had to add anything to my liners' tongues yet, but I have been doing a combination of two or three layers of 1/8" thick j bars, heel wrap pads, and boot narrowing pads on my stock nike and burton liners. I started off using the pre-shaped pads available from tognar, but now I shape my own from sheets of bootfitters foam. what are using as an adhesive? Barge? Super 88?

I would need a ridiculous amount of foam added to my thirtytwo liners to get those TM-2s anywhere close to decent in terms of fit. I wrote them off and moved on.

Beautiful stuff, this.  What is the red material you added to the front?  That's for additional forward drive, I presume, or is it to soak up volume to avoid shin-bang?

I have narrow feet- I've owned or tried on various boots over the years : Burton, 32, Ride, k2, adidas, vans --- nike is by far the best fit/comfort for my narrow ass foot -- 

My lunars are a few years old and still look brand new with very little breakdown. ---

if you have a narrow foot and want a super comfortable boot = ebay = lunarendor or Kaiju
