I've been skiing alot this winter, and since I put Superfeet Orange footbeds into my ski boots, I have developed knee pain and occasional foot pain in boot while skiing. Going over anything that is not PERFECT groomed snow has become borderline impassible due to knee pain.... i'm only 24. The stock footbeds were very comfortable, but they let my heel go WAY down in the boot, and thus allowed for the top of the liner to drive straight into the belly of my gastrocnemius muscle, making a good fit up top impossible.
Are superfeet orange bad for the foot and knee? If so, will custom footbeds reduce knee pain?
Also, as far as cuff alignment (which feels too "inward" and painful), once and for all I just want a straight answer... if my knee is over the front of the boot, how many millimeters from the center line should the knee be?
Misc info... I'm short (5'7"), so cuffs ride way up my leg, and here in Ohio I ski more aggressively than 99.5% of people (so I need the most perfect boot setup).
Oh, and if you think I should "consult a bootfitter," well, I already did do that at my local ski shop (rated "The Best in Ohio!"), and the bootfitter was passive and not quite as helpful as a would have liked. Hence, with the exception of getting custom footbeds, the rest of this stuff is up to me to fix.
