Hello Boot Guys,
I finally made the right move and sprung for custom footbeds. The skiing is superb! The best it has ever been.
I got the Le Feet Lab's custom footbeds in Winter Park. Due to practical reasons I won't go in to, I coulnd't return to the shop before I left town to have them deal with it, so now I'll have to go elsewhere. BTW, this probably won't be addressed until next fall.
Anyway, after the left footbed was installed, my big toe is driven up into the top of the boot (didn't really notice till I started skiing on it). My toenail is still sore from the compression three days ago.
The guy at Le Feet Labs said their custom footbeds can "break" if they are taken in and out. Therefore, I am only left to shell modifications... should I tell bootfitter to "grind" the top of the toe area? Anything else that could be done?
Also, how fragile are the footbeds really? Like, can I still remove the liners if I want to change flex?
