The Eliminator Custom Tongue Shims

(24 reviews) Write a Review

Product Overview

The Eliminator is a semi-soft foam pad with a smooth inner face that's designed to fit snugly behind your existing boot tongue. The Autoadapt foam material custom-molds to your shin over time. They can help cure a myriad of ills, including shin bite relief, heel lifting and elimination of instep pain from over buckling...particularly in snowboard boots. They also reduces or eliminates excess room in upper boot cuffs... especially valuable for folks with thin legs or calves who have previously not been able to enjoy all the control boots are designed to deliver without cranking boot buckles impossibly tight, which usually has the undesirable effect of overly stiffening the forward boot flex.

    Excellent padding

    Posted by Alan Baribault on Jan 29, 2021

    These are really helpful, and I would not be able to ski without them. I have them in Scarpa T Race, Scott Synergy, but don't need for the Scarpa Tx Pro (yet). Only issue is they move around in the boot, especially when skinning and need to get re-set to the velcro spots.

    Tongue shims

    Posted by K on Mar 11, 2020

    I have long but very narrow feet. I kept buckling my boots down as tight as possible to attempt to get them snug, but it just hurt at the pressure points without getting an overall snug fit. These tongues definitely fill in some of the extra space I was feeling and I thus give a bit more responsiveness in my turns...which is what I was hoping for.

    Eliminator tongue shims

    Posted by TimG on Aug 08, 2019

    I have used these for years in several different snowboard boots, they work great. Bought a new pair because the old ones felt a bit worn out, then bought a second pair to fill more space at the top of a new pair of very stiff snowboard boots. They feel great, waiting for snow season to try the double layer.

    A must for skiers with skinny legs

    Posted by Alex on Mar 30, 2019

    Absolutely love the tongue shims. I have really skinny calves but am a very aggressive skier. I battled shin bang my entire skiing career until I got these things. Really helps suck your foot into the heel of the boot too such a plus!

    Not too effective against shinbang

    Posted by Maurits on Mar 13, 2019

    Bought these in the US with shipping to Europe. Great service and help from tognar staff over the email. Despite this, i hoped they were going to help against pressure points on my shin and so minimize shin bang in my salomon xmax 120 boots. I am afraid they did not do the job and will have to go a new pair of boots with proper fitting. In my case, thrown away money. They could fulfil their purpose for other people and other ends

    comfortable padding that fills the gap

    Posted by PL on Feb 16, 2019

    These tongue shims fill the gap around the front of the ankle and lower shin to hold my boot firmly, yet comfortably, in place. No regrets, good value because it works well.

    I wish I had these earlier in my life. They work as advertised.

    These end that “top of the boot” pressure point.
