dsnyd22with this new set up I don't have a strap so does anyone know if I can buy the booster strap and screw them to the back of my boot?
Yes - a shop that normally installs booster straps will have no problem doing this for you. It involves centering the the strap on the cuff the right way, drilling holes in the cuff, melting holes in the booster strap, and using appropriate mounting hardware.
dsnyd22This is what I recently bought because boot fitter said they would work. I also put in footbeds. they felt fine in store but after skiing a day I absolutely hated everything about them. they hurt my arch, hurt the top of my foot, hurt the sides of my foot. also caused thigh pain due to where the sweet spot was. it was like forcing me to lean forward too much. I really hope you have better luck
Yep, this is why you always need to adjust to footbeds before you go skiing. If your feet are not used to a supportive footbed (100% of normal shoes lack this) then the tissues & ligaments in your foot tighten up and now they are made to travel over a longer distance (up and over the arch support, as opposed to just laying flat). This will burn, this will crap, you will hate it. This is a super huge sign that you should be wearing an everyday footbed in your everyday shoes. You do the most help and hurt to your feet in your everyday shoes, so when you do wear supportive footbeds everyday, you can hop into your ski boots and rip. If you don't, then you need to wear your ski boots around the house for 20-30 minutes every night.
Also, if your boot-fitter just sold you footbeds and didn't heat mold your liner or check to see if the shell needed adjustment once your foot was supported, then it's the boot-fitter's fault not the footbeds. Chances are high that you need a liner re-mold and shell adjustment too.
