SHL™ Stop Heel Lift boot heel inserts is our best selling product by far. This is the reason I started this website because I wanted to help people like me who have experienced extreme foot pain from over tightened Snowboard/Ski boots from getting Heel Lift.
My earliest memories of skiing on school trips and many dry slope visits are of sloppy fitting ski boots. God knows how I managed to keep skiing in a straight line!
My first season was working for an English company in France, Chalet Beaumont in Chamonix as a Ski Rep which was at the time my life dream to live in the mountains for a whole winter. I Skied a bit but bought a Snowboard quite early on and didn't get back on a pair of Skis until a Rossignol demo day at a snow dome back in the UK when I was working at Snow and Rock.
I worked in and eventually ran the Ski / Snowboard department and workshop for 5 seasons and by the end had seen well over a 1000 pairs of feet. Sometimes just to help people who couldn't afford new boots I would fit bits of boot fitting foam but not used the templates we had which tended to push the feet forward and could lead to other toe issues, like black toenails. It was after I left Snow and Rock that SHL™ was born and I realised that having a free online Boot Fit Problem Solver and SHL™, Heel Raises and Volume Reducers I could help solve many of the same issues I had seen many times.
The Original SHL™ I brought to market worked well but the new Version2 SHL™ are so much better. They are made with higher density Plastizote foam and are actually thicker too so they give more grip for much longer than before. I use these in my own boots! Yes I should by new ones....
Stop Heel Lift .com now posts to 39 countries and has helped thousands of Skiers and Snowboards get the most from their winter holiday and we hope to keep on doing just that.
Love to all,
Recently we had someone asking about where the Volume Reducer should go in their Ski Boots.
The Volume Reducers we sell can be put into any type of footwear but this article is for Ski and Snowboard boots alike.
