Boot fitting foam

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Hi,

Anyone know where I can get this or something similar from in Europe - http://www.tognar.com/boot-fitting-foam-10-x-10-sheet/

Thanks

lots of computer stuff come in that foam stuff.
Ask at a computer store. Its usually a top sheet to protect motherboards or videocards, etc.

Funnily enough, I kept 2 sheets for just a thing & threw them out yesterday Shock/
Only kept them because I get heal lift & was going to DIY a solution if my cantered wedges didnt work

another option is to go look at wood/laminate wood flooring underlay. Some of them are of foam quality.
You might get away with asking for a sample 'o)

@Mr.Egg, I don’t <think> the packaging stuff is as dense. Making it pretty useless for purpose requested.

I could be wrong.

You could try chiropodists felt http://www.boots.com/boots-pharmaceuticals-self-adhesive-thick-padding-1-sheet-10115049
I used it to make heel wedges for my running shoes to help with over pronation.

I'm just about to order a new graphics card so I will have a look at its packaging, from what I remember with graphics card packaging some of it is a lot denser than others

Thanks for that website I'll send them a message

If it's a pretty dense neoprene type foam you want, like for making stick-on shaped bits on boot liners, then EBay does loads in different thicknesses - like https://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/ADHESIVE-BACKED-BLACK-NEOPRENE-SPONGE-FOAM-RUBBER-SHEET-2mm-15mm-THICK/262636002057?hash=item3d26535b09:m:m8fgFlTknXM-dbE1dG5tnzQ ( just the first that came up on a search).
I've used it on my snowboard boot liners and on walking boot insoles.

In fairness, and in my experience, and admitting it’s maybe not an option, but if you’re having to pack a liner out, it’s too big. Better starting small and making bigger to fit... as I say, maybe not an economically attractive option.

Grizzler - Nice one, I'd totally forgotten about ebay

I've been in several shops and tried on virtually every boot, none fit very well so I'm making the boots that I do have fit me

Yeah I know that, but 12€ postage for something that costs 4€ is pretty excessive, especially as its something I must be able to find locally

well FWIW the tognar foam works well (it's quite dense and stiff) but I've achieved a similar level of adjustment with duck tape and some chopped up bits of milk bottle on the liners of my snowboard boots to make J bars to stop heel lift.

Just a bit easier with the tognar stuff.

You could use some of these Sidas butterfly shaped heel volume reducers and cut them up to suit:

If you buy from Tognar, you may get hit with additional customs duty. I did when I bought some of their canting wedges but just couldn't find a European source for these.

Bought stuff from here for making custom armrest pads on the TT bike, no idea if it's suitable for bootfitting though.
