Sidas Custom Pro Winter Insoles
 
My riding coach told me to get these for my Burton Driver X boots and he was correct. It takes about an hour to have them crafted to your feet but it was worth it. They give you a total connection to your blade u would not otherwise have. If you can, do this!

I've just got these done, in a pair of K2 Thraxis. Only been out one day so far, but SUPER comfortable and responsive. The guy who molded them suggested I steal the piece of harshmallow foam off of the bottom of the factory insoles and glue it onto the sidas' when I get a chance - I'm doing that tonight, to get ready for tomorrow. :)

Is that the gel thingy near the heal of the original insole?

Yeah. I've taped it to the bottom of the new insoles now (didn't get up today) but I'll glue it on after I'm sure it's in the right place/I want to keep it.

Cool! gonna try that too. been saving them, your suggestion told me why!

Nice! Glad I could help. Let me know what you think. I stood in my boots after taping the padding in, and it felt nice, so I think I'll probably like it on the snow too.

That doesn't seem like it would work. The stock ones have an indent where the harshmellow fits. If you put it on the sidas, it will lift it in an unnatural way, wont it?

I have Thraxis/Sidas and tried something similar, didn't work too well.

Thanks so much for your post. I have one more day to ride before season ends and was going to try after. Will hold off now. I love this forum almost everyone I could see here being a friend. Not kidding. Seriously, if anyone on this forum comes to whitefish montana please message me. :) Big difference between skiers and shredders in my short experience. Skiers seem like the general population and riders have a wonderful common mindset. Maybe a broad generalization but damn I am glad I chose riding!

Haha, yeah funny coincidence. Worth a try anyway though, won't hurt (permanently at least :D). Feet are sensitive to pretty small changes inside the liner, even a few mm can be pain or not.

When I tried, it just reduced volume too much, which hurts, and the middle sunk in. The harshmellow padding pieces are only on the heel and metatarsal area. You might be able to get away with doing just the heel ones, if that doesn't lift your heel too far out of the sweet spot to keep it held in.

I haven't been to Whitefish, but spent some time around Bozeman. Might do Whitefish next year!

How did you arrange them? Same pieces in the same places as stock (heel and ball of foot)?

You raise a good point, however the sole of the boot ALSO has an indent for the harshmellow to fit into. seemed pretty comfy to me, I've had it in for a few days now.
