Socks and/or footbeds causing numbness

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys! Would thin smart wool socks and/or custom footbeds cause numbness in the toes while wearing the boots? I have switched my footbeds out with the stock footbeds and then put my boots on bare foot. My feet did not go numb at all.

I have a very high instep and bad flexibility in my ankles. I was fitted with Technica Phoenix Max 10 Air Shells.

Is it crazy to ski without socks? Also, im going to park city. Any recommendations for a fitter there to help me out?

if a were a bettin man, i would go with the footbed being the change that is causing your problem.

brent will flatten out the hooky lau in your tecnica bootboard, and properly trim and interface your custom footbed, so it fits properly in your boot.

Thank you! I wish i lived near some really good bootfitters. It is extremely frustrating to not be able to dial in a boot that doesnt't kill my quads or make my feet go numb. Currently on my second "fitted" pair.
