Inner Soles Required ?

I brought some boots online which showed up today. ( thirtytwo focus boa )

However the package was missing one of the inner soles / foot beds. Now the boot without the inner sole actually feels more comfortable ( as they are a bit small with the inner sole in )

Question: Am I going to damage my boots by using them without the foot bed?

I've asked them to send a replacement but it'll take a while to get to me and I really want to use them tomorrow.

Thanks.

The stock footbeds suck! Don't waste your time waiting for the replacement. Go get yourself an aftermarket footbed for your boots. (Take your boots and try them in store if you can.) You will thank me.

I think you will regret it if you do. Without a proper footbed providing arch support, etc? I predict you will be in pain on your very first run.

Look at your boots. Their basically a flat bottomed shell. It's the liner and footbeds that provide support and protect your foot. The liners of my 32's are way too soft to provide adequate cushioning and support for my feet.

Go to store, buy footbeds, then go shred with them!
