LeviRuddellThanks everyone, i use the footbeds in my FT's and they make them a thousand times more comfortable. It also eliminates the toe bang and gives me some more room for my toes. I was actually selling a FT boot and my manager came by as i was putting a footbed in and said oh you don't need footbeds in intuition liners. It was the first time i've heard that... anyways i sold the kid a footbed anyways lol. At first i honestly thought that FT's didn't come with an insole because they wanted you to put in an aftermarket one! Honestly, every other company is dumb for not at least putting a bit of support in their boots. It's funny seeing people buying 900$ boots without buying a footbed...
JibbaTheHuttquick questions, I've never been quite sure how to adjust volume of full tilts as there is no replaceable footbed. when you add a custom you inevitably remove volume in the boot. now, is this solvable by allowing the liner to bed in naturally?
tomPietrowskiYou take into account the change of position of the foot when doing the shell cheack. The liner won't be what feels tight it will be the shell. So if you don't have room in the shell for the foot in neutral it's not the right shell for you. Adjustments can be made like removing material from the boot board and remoulding te liners may help but it's the shell volume whic will be the deciding factor.
JibbaTheHuttok, i thought it would be down to shell, just wondered if there was a technique (short of grinding down the footboard) that was generally acceptable.
Carl_the_LlamaHelpful thread, Definitely getting footbeds now. Just one question. Kinda related to above, but would you still put the footbed inside the liner?Could you heat mold to make the liner bigger to accommodate for the loss of space?
LeviRuddellYou definitely want the footbed inside the liner! i would say try the boot with the footbed first keep it on for a while to generate some heat, if its not too tight go ski in it, The best way to REALLY break in a boot is to ski in it. If that doesn't work move on to re heating the liners and then grinding or stretching.... Try not to change the shell if you can. Pick the right shell according to your size. Once you start grinding and stretching it can void the warranty... let me know if this helps.
