3 years ago I bought some full tilt drop kicks. Wasn't really fitted for them but they felt fine in the shop and I'd already had to pay for them as i'd had to order that size in (regret this now but oh well)
I've worn them for about 5 weeks skiing in total over the years but as I'm going on a season i though i'd get some custom footbeds to prevent the pain I often got with them.
Had the footbeds fitted yesterday, guy seemed to know what he was talking about and when i put my feet back into my boots they felt very tight but snug and fine. Trying them on back home and i feel the sides of my foot are being pressed by the arch support, not painfully but noticeable, and the top of my foot doesn't have much room. Is this something to get use to? Will the boot pack out further as i wear them more with the footbeds, would be good to have a little more room in the top of the liner.
The best option would be to buy new boots - I may end up doing this mid season when I have more money but for now I'm stuck with the FTs. Will the boots repack and get comfier?
I can take the footbeds back anytime to have changes made to them. I'm reluctant to do this before I ski with them, There will be sidas fitters in resort and i don't mind giving them some cash to change the footbeds once i've had a ski.
Many thanks for any help
TL:DR: why hasn't getting custom footbeds made my boots into slippers?
