Instaprint Custom Footbeds
Both telemark and AT boots are just as accommodating to custom footbeds as downhill boots. If you don’t get fitted for footbeds when you purchase telemark or AT boots I recommend that you take your boots to a shop that sells, custom fits, installs footbeds and will later correct and tweak them to your comfort and satisfaction.

Lifting the Heels
When Hal put the finished footbeds in my boots and had me buckle up he could see I had a problem. Honestly, I felt something was not right but couldn’t explain it. This is where Hal’s schooling came to the forefront. He asked me sets of questions as to how I felt when I leaned first this way, then that way, back and forward. Page 4.

Posting the Custom Insole
When the footbed was conformed to my foot Hal applied a foam posting shell to the bottom of the insole. These posting shells come in varying consistentcies according to application and skier use. Hal explained that a racer would want a hard, firmer base underfoot for better boot to ski reflex. Page 3.

Ready To Hike the Wild Snow
With the AT boots hiking and skiing is as much a part of the backcountry experience as finding a nice bit of snowed downhill that nobody has ever skied before. Page 5.

Factory Liners Compress
The problem arises when skiing pressures push the material around the foot – which actually molds the layering material to the individual foot. It does feel good until the material starts to compress. Page 2.

21st Century Custom Ski Boot Liners
In fact, a lot of ordinary skiers are unaware that not only do the factory liners pull right out, but you can replace any boot liners with injectable liners that are custom fit to the individual skiers’ feet. Page 3.

Fits Like a Glove
While I stood on an elevated table with arms for support, Ray checked my stance, made some minor adjustments, and injected first the tongues and then the areas surrounding the foot. All this was done through tubes that projected out the front. The process felt a bit tight as the material was put in, but quickly things felt normal again. Page 4.

Ski Boots are Better Than New
Once the material had set, I had no trouble taking the boots off or putting them on. In fact, the finished liners stay pliable and can still be pulled out of the boot, they are that flexible. Page 5.
