On my newest pair of boots, in order to make them fit the best with a surefoot footbed, I had to get some shell work done on one boot, and also had to adjust the cuffs to "0" (there are also "+" and "-"). The boots came from HEAD with the cuff set in the "+" setting, and this created pain and did not allow me to fully buckle the boots. Also, in neutral stance pressure was on OUTSIDE edge of ski.
Anyway, the book "Ultimate Skiing" says that it is uncommon to have zero or negative cuff alignments, and that this makes it easy to over-tilt the ski during carves. But it also said that there are some exceptions, and that having the best fit is most important.
I did see a bootfitter, and they said my cuff alignment was fine (they did some test where I stood on a board, flexed, and they had a piece of cardboard they hit the base of the boot with), yet the test wasn't exhaustive.
Anyway, is it OK to keep the "zero" alignment? Also, I'm confused, because it seems as though when I added negative (took from a plus to zero) the cuff actually titled to the outside?
Not sure if relevant, but bootfitter says I have "wide, flat feet." Also (this is from me) my foot is much "sturdier" in a supinated position with weight driving through lateral surfaces.
