Default company's intentionally have bad insoles ?

i just got some superfeet for my northwave legends,
the stock insoles are really bad but the rest of the boot is great !

i was thinking that the company's make the insoles very standard intentionally cuz all serious riders change them anyway and can get the insole that is perfect for them... would be a very tall order to try to please everyone

just a thought :P

I tried both the blue and black superfeet in my malamutes for a few days and ended up going back to my stock insoles. The stock ones were maybe a little less comfortable but they did a better job in keeping my foot from moving back and forth.

The foot beds you get in all snowboard boots are crap. The companies have to make a foot bed that will work for a wide range of feet, hence not to great for any foot. A semi custom to custom foot bed is the way to go. I've always thrown in superfeet at the very least and have a pair of custom foot beds I am currently using. It's a huge difference in comfort and support.

I will say that the stock foot beds work for me for generally around 10-15 days. After that they just break down too much and I start getting foot cramps and that sort of thing when I am riding.

I'd go a step further and say that all footbeds out of the box suck, not just snowboarding boots. I've never bought a pair of shoes that I haven't changed out the footbed.

If you mean the gel ones that dr scholls makes then yeah superfeet is vastly superior. Superfeet actually have science behind their design instead of their end game being comfy gel. In fact, most people have to get used to superfeet insoles at first because they can be painful/irritating to begin.

i like how people bash on stock insoles being made for every foot but then go on to recommend superfeet
