Gripwalk Sole Modifcation
We are now able to modify most boots that have a Gripwalk sole on them. Depending on the replacement Gripwalk sole we will have to modify the sole slightly to fit in our CNC Machine.
Boots We Can Modify
Any hard soled boot or plug boot. These are boots without a replaceable sole. We'll throw on our own custom rubber tread lifters or Gripwalk lifters for better grip and protection. This means you won’t have to replace your boots just cause the soles start wearing thin.
Boots with Alpine (ISO 5355) replaceable soles on them. We will modify those soles and your boots for tech compatibility. Our standard conversion maintains ISO 5355 so your boots will test and function properly in all your alpine bindings.
Boots with Gripwalk (ISO 23223) replaceable soles on them. We will modify those soles and your boots for tech compatibility. Our standard conversion maintains ISO 23223 so your boots will test and function properly in all your alpine bindings that are compatible with Gripwalk soled boots. Please note we do have to modify the soles slightly to fit into our CNC machine.
Kids boots with ISO 5355 Type A soles. The A stands for an adult sole. These are generally kids boots mondo size 21.5 and bigger. Check the bottom of the boot to find these specs.
Common Boots we Modify are…Atomic Hawx, Dalbello Panterra or Krypton, All Full Tilt Boots, Tecnica Mach1*, Salomon Max* or Pro*, Lange RX, LX, or RS. We modify other boots as well; these are just the most common. *Older version of these boots might have a replaceable LUG that we cannot modify
Generally once we receive the boots in our possession. It will take 7-10 business days for us to convert the boots. Then there will be a little bit of time shipping the boots back to you.

There are Holidays and Powder Days that don't want to be missed. It can be stressful to send us your boots in the winter when you could be out skiing. We recommend sending us your boots in the summer when you do not have such a strict timeline.
We think there are some good performance oriented Touring Boots on the market now. Sometimes going with a New Boot is not an option. We find there are skiers out there that want to stick with their current alpine boots because........
1. Don't want to invest in another ski boot
2. Finally got their current boots comfortable and working
3. Need the performance from an alpine oriented boot
4. Current boot has a walk mode but no tech inserts
These are just some of the reason why some people choose to go with our Boot conversion verse buying a new boot.
In general we can modify most boots on the market today. There are only a handful of boots we can not modify. Please read thoroughly through our Boot Conversion Tech Page for more details about the boot conversion.
