Putting Vibram soles on ski boots
I am in the process of building my self the "ultimate ski boot" And am going to put vibram soles on the bottom of my new Plug boots. I am also puttting a boot lift on these bad boys, and then grinding the toe and heil peice back down to DIN that way I can replace the soles every year when I wear them out insted of having to buy new boots. But I want to put vibram soles on one set of the boot lifts, so on days that I need it ill actually have traction on the bottom of the boots. The question is, where the hell can I get Vibram soles at????? and yes I know that they will cause the bindings not to release as easily, but since i am using looks with a din of 18 I am not to concered about my skis realeasing.
Also part to is, when heating hte boots to blow out the shells with a boot expander, what temp on the heat gun do i use? I have been ussing high, but it doesnt seem to heat the area evenly all the way threw, any suggestions?

Get a hold of mtnlion. I don't know if he ever came over to this board or stayed at powder. He's done a couple or more pair already so can give you some insight on it too. He got me a catalogue for a Canadian shoe repair supplier that has all the stuff. When I get to work I'll try to get the name and they may have a website. Not sure if ANY shoe repair would stock them but certainly some of the better one's should and most could order them I'm sure.It's not so much the model year, it's the high mileage or meterage to keep the youth of Canada happy
