Useful life of Custom Footbeds (Surefoot)?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I had custom footbeds made for me at the Park City Surefoot store in 2002.   I think they did a good job and I noticed an immediate benefit in both my boot fit and edging precision.   For the last ten years I have skied 25-30 days each season with the footbeds, over three sets of boots. (Now have one-year old Lange RX130's.   Great fit for me and I love the liner.)  I have used a second pair of the Surefoots for use in my hiking boots and jogging shoes---pretty much eliminated what I thought had been a gimpy knee problem, but turned out to be severe over pronation in my right leg.

 

After ten years, should I have my feet rescanned and have new footbeds made?   Is there an inevitable degradation of the footbed material after this length of time?   I don't really get the impression that the footbeds are shot...but if it turns out these footbeds have a useful life of ten years, then I'm willing to go another round.

 

Thanks!

i would say after 10 years they have served you well and it is time for new ones, whether it is another set of the same or a different product from a local fitter is your choice, but i think well worth the investment
