I don't think this is the same thing. Canting footbeds affect the foot ankle and leg complex as a whole while your locked into your boot.

A canted Orthotic would affect your Subtalar Joint Neutral and mainly is used to adjust for pronation and supination foot positions. subtle adjustments to the ankle has effects all the way up to your hip and back.

The canted foot bed in my opinion doesn't have such a direct effect on the ankle as the custom orthotic would.

If you want to ghetto cant your boots insole cut a strip of cardboard that's half as wide as the foot bed and runs from the toe to the heel put it under the big toe and poof you're canted out or reverse it and put it under the pinky to the heel and poof you're canted in.

You'd be surprised how many "professional" boot fitters use that trick just with a bit more duct tape.

Oooof. I'd feel pretty ripped off pulling the liner out of my boot only to find duct tape and cardboard.

How much do professional boot fittings usually run, anyway?

Kind of depends on the mood they're in. We used to have a sign that said 45 dollars an hour for labor, then set fees for various things, and footbeds were about 175. If the dude was a dick it was 45 bucks an hour, plus fees for whatever materials we used, if dude was cool I could be doing the fitting and it'd be a minor tweak and have them out the door for 5 bucks.

I have knee problems and have been thinking about doing some ghetto fabulous modifications to create a cant footbed for my bindings. I want to leave my boots alone as I think canted footbeds in the boots would suck for hiking and trekking.
