Custom foot beds taking up more volume and causing pain vs trim to fit. Am I doing something wrong?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I haven't found any information on this so appreciate the advice.

I was introduced to insta print footbeds when getting some boot issues fixed on a salomon impact 10 (09 year I think) 26.5 boots. Got heel lifts, footbeds and one punch and was good to go. On the bottom of the liner you can see where the custom foot bed which is wider has collapsed the groove where the stock footbed sat. The liner packed out and have since put in an rx 130 liner which killed my feet and I'm now using the liner out of my cochise pro 130.

The problem on both my Cochise pro 130s (dfp hd intuitions) and impacts is that with my insta prints my foot hurts and goes numb, especially my toes. Performance however is awesome. Nice and flat on skis, great control. If I use super feet black insoles or stock insoles, no pain/numb issues but less control.

I figure it's because the custom footbeds take up more volume or don't fit well in the shell. Maybe I need to break the bottom part of the liner in better? I don't want to keep cutting days short while it breaks in more. What can I do?
I have taken a dremel and filed down my insta prints as narrow as I can without compromising the shape, still a problem.

Thanks guys!

assuming that all the footsbeds are trimmed in width about the same, are the customs footebds (that you like) thicker?   if so, grind them thinner from the bottom.   Or use a thinner sock?  or keep the toe buckles a bit looser

Yep I had trimmed the foot beds to the same width. They are thicker from the bottom posting side. I have 2 sets (one yellow, one red) so no problem taking a pair and grinding it down. How much would you recommend I grind off? I am going to aim to not completely grind of the posting material.

 

Have been using a real thin sock and have kept the buckles lose. I wonder if the fact that these custom foot beds are more stiff that also causes a problem?

 

Will report how it goes. Thanks again!

thin out the toe area to 1-2mm thick  (or keep thicker if that works for you)
