Full Tilts with footbed?
I have been skiing with custom foot beds for about 10 years now and the last 4 years in a Dalbello il moro with intuition liner and my custom foot bed. Just got a pair of Full Tilt Konflicts and I'm wondering if most people are skiing with or without custom footbeds in their FT's?
It's my first year with Full Tilt's and first year with footbeds.
For a lot of the season I was having trouble with my boots hurting, so I did a run without the footbeds (or maybe I just tried them without the footbeds, I can't remember), and anyway, the boots were so much worse with no footbeds. FYI, everything's good now.
yup. A-Lines made a world of difference for me
IPhone Cases. Ipod Cases. Macbook Skins.
All boots should be accompanied with a footbed, especially boots that are custom heat molded. They don't need to be custom footbeds necessarily, I have superfeet green in mine and they're perfect, they hold my foot in place and help give me better control and feel over my skis.

cool thanks for the feedback
I personally believe that every boot should have a footbed of some sort in it, they help out too much to not have them in there. With Full Tilt (and any brand that uses Intuition liners) you can either put them inside the liner like normal or run them under the liner (in the shell) and then mold the liner over the footbed. I think molded footbeds will work better inside these liners but something like ALINE is great to put under the liner.
exactly. Even if you have perfect feet get some footbed. I actually think custom ones are pointless, they just mold the 'errors' in your feet. I use SOLE footbeds, in all my shoes/boots, and they actually have helped my knees and lower back a ton(I am(was) flat footed, and part of my knee PT was always using these footbeds with big arches).

footbeds are always better than no footbed, custom foootbeds are always better than just regular ones. Our feet are not all genetically the same. Though custom ones are expensive, they are definitely a good investment if your feet have stopped growing. If you cant afford custom ones, shop around for a few different ones and see which fit your feet best. They make a world of a difference.
Ive been using custom superfeet for about 7 years now (same pair, they last forever). You have to be careful though if you had your boot fitted without an orthotic though because it will change the fit of your boot.
I recently got a pair of full tilt boots and they were pretty uncomfortable the first few days so I went out and got some custom footbeds. They felt good in the store but when I put on the boots at the mountain (cold) my feet barely fit into them with the beds. Even before I started skiing the footbeds were painful on my feet and I took them out after a few runs and it felt better. I have never used footbeds in my boots before and I assumed they would help alot. Can anyone offer me some advice, do I need to let my feet get used to the footbeds or maybe get them cut thinner?? It felt as if the beds were doing the opposite and causing more pressure/pain on my feet...
you need to remold the liner with your footbeds in them. currently, they're just taking up space that wasn't accounted for initially. take the footbeds out, cook the liners, put footbeds back in, put your feet in the boots, and do the whole molding process all over. it'll feel much better this time around.
i have footbeds for my hot doggers. so yes, keep using footbeds
ya its amazing how much volume an intuition liner can create or absorb while heat molding. i had the same problem, my foot was getting the life squeezed out of it after i put my foot beds in without molding but after i molded them they have been great
