wrathfuldeity maybe cut out a hole in the foam pad abit bigger than the hotspot...right where the hotspot is.

I need a name 3m tape worked. Problem is lessened, but still persists.

Options here? Jut throw more foam directly over the area to disperse the pain? More foam and cut out the exact place where the problem spot is to redistribute the point to surrounding areas?

I can post a picture of my foot to pinpoint the issue, there was a red spot on it from the pressure point.

Velcro doesn't stick at all to the tongue of my liner.

I'll try a big piece of 3m double sided tape used for automotive. It should be able to hold it in place.

wrathfuldeity Freesole is a slow viscous stuff....very thick but it slowly spreads itsself out. You won't need to clamp much if at all...but try to make the surface lie horizontally because it will run/seep abit...kind of pools. It takes at least 24 hours to cure...it should work great for (permanently) gluing things on to the liners...I'd spread it on thin to both surfaces and position it with some painter's tape and then put a small weight/sand bag...maybe 5-10# and let it sit....but stuff the inside of the liner so it keeps its shape. If you get globs...let it dry and shave off with a razor blade or grind it off with a bench grinder. Also if the place gets lots of rubbing on the liner or a place where it tends to rip when taking out the liners for drying....cover with hurricane tape...kind of a webbed nylon tape that is slick...see boot faq

I'll give that a go. It's essentially boot foam to the liner.



Also, adding a few layers of orthotic foam underneath my insole is a perfect method of dampening. I overshot a few kickers HARD landing flat. Would have been brutal without it, but I was able to ride away with ease. Response didn't even take a hit, no difference there.

Heel lift should be solved, but I'll find out today. Tongue padding has been added.

If foot pain still persists, next plan is to sand off some foam from the piece I shimmed under the orthotic from the toes all the way back to right before the heel. Then I will cut out some higher density foam to form around my whole upper foot and stick this directly to the top of the inside of the shell instead of liner.
