Instaprint footbed too grippy

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I've been shopping for new boots.  Having very limited dorsiflection I have a hard time getting into most boots.  With some heat and persistance I usually manage to get my foot in with the stock footbeds.  However, my custom Instaprints, are too grippy and won't allow my foot to slide forward.

 

Any suggestions besides new footbeds?  These aren't old. My current boots are Kryptons which make entry much easier.

re-top the footbed with a slippery top cover.

 

or try using easy on or slide on spray.

Had a customer in today with a similar getting in problem but it was his stomach in the way.  Just as I was ready to help him out popped a piece of wax paper he travels with.  Quick like a bunny he was in and buckled.

So he skis with the wax paper in there? My stomach isn't helping, but it is far from the problem.

No, he holds a long piece on top of his foot to  ease his instep and another at his heel.  Once he slides in out they come.  Really worked pretty well.  You could also look at the Hot Gear Bag, we sell many and almost always to make it easier to get boots on.

hottronic makes a thin, cambrell cover for using over the heaters, sells for $10/pair.   try re-covering your insoles with that?
