Vacuum fischer + canting

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

ciao,

 

I had my boots fitted with cants under the sole (by a bootfitter in france) I guess to align my knees   some years ago.

 

Now I informed in a shop about fischer vacuum boots , If he was able to add these cants on to the fisherboot. The man told me that

 

it is not  neccessary anymore because the boot is formed to your stance during the process. 

 

Is this right ? It looks only that the cuffs are formed to the shape of your underleg but not the sole of the boot which stays flat.

you are correct, shop is not.

 

the upper cuff (on all boots) is usually made to accomidate your legs natural allignment side to side (not corrective)

 

the canting plates, under your boot, are made to correct your stance.

 

this is all pointless if the boot doesn't fit, or flex right, and if you dont have the foot stabilised with a good footbed.
