Posted vs Non posted footbeds

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi,

 

I have a pair of Instaprint posted footbeds that take up too much volume in my new (downsized) boots.  I also have an older pair of nonposted Comfomable custom footbeds that take up less volume. They have a hard plastic bottom, but obviously could flex more.  Both were made by reputable bootfitters, though the non posted ones have only been used in my snowboard boots for several years. 

 

What would I be giving up by using those in my new boots?  If I only get 20 days in this season, I'm afraid the new liners won't pack out enough to use my "good" liners all year.

its a coke vs pepsi thing.  Both work, for different skiers and for different boot fitters.  

 

Try the thinner ones, and see how they feel, or get the thicker ones ground thinner (or use a thinner sock)

Not certain I agree with the coke vs pepsi thing.  I'd say more apples and oranges.  If your foot alignment needs to be corrected in order for correct foot function you will need a posted footbed, especially when compared with the relatively soft custom footbeds most shops make for comfort.
