Footbeds

I basically joined this site to hear from some others on this topic. My boots are starting to get a little old and I was told that a pair of footbeds would help keep them going a bit longer. In addition to the regular superfeet, sole etc. I saw aline after reading something about how a ton of olympians are using their product. Does anyone have any experience with/know about these?

Thanks.

Are you asking about new insoles? I have a pair of ShredSoles in my boots and the feel in uncomparable to the crappy insoles that came in my boots. My friend has some gel inserts in his, but I dont know how they are working out for him. Go check out ShredSoles - Performance Snowboarding Insoles

go to aline's website, and look at the riders that use their insoles.

if that's not enough to convince you on something you seem so bent on, i don't know what will.

i love my life

I work in a shop and have been trained by Masterfit in bootfitting and custome insoles. If you want to go all out and get a full custom, Instaprint, conformable and superfeet all have them available. Just make sure you find a reputable shop that can make them for you. I prefer instaprint because when we take the molding of your foot it's in the unweighted postion meaning all of the bones in your feet are in their natural position. With that, you get support in all of the appropriate places.

I just saw a tv commercial for Dr. Sholl's new foot mapping machines they're putting in some drug stores. The mapping is in the weighted position and, of course, they're only going to reccomend their own products, but it looks interesting...for us cheaper snowboarders.

...anyway, I use superfeet blues. After trying trying the greens and not liking the ultra high arch, I switched to blue and have been using the same pair for 2 seasons.

aline footbeds

So I purchased a pair of alines and used them last weekend up at Sugarbush, 50 inches baby. Footbeds felt great, good enough to throw in my daily shoes. Normally after lunch I'll get a lot of soreness along the bottom of my foot which wasn't the case with the alines in.

I thought it was interesting…the rep from ortholite messaged me and offered me a free pair. On the one hand its great to get offered a free pair. On the other hand its pretty shady to be trolling these sites and using them to backdoor their products to people. Hmmmmmmm.
