Best footbed for wide feet and mid-to-high arch

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I have above average width feet and a moderate-to-high arch.  I'm in Tecnica Bodacious boots, size 27.5, but can't seem to find a foot bed that works.  Not sure I want to spend the $$$ for a custom footbed.  Any suggestions?

soles have a high arch to start with,  if you need more, get customes

if you can't find an over the counter product that works for you then custom is the only way forward,

 

all the OTC stuff is an average of lots of feet so one size fits nobody, if you get lucky and one works then fantastic, if not see the first line of this post

For full disclosure, the issue was more that the arch support was too far back on my foot.  Perhaps I have a long arch?

Perhaps but that isn't relevant.  If OTC footbeds don't work then your only option is custom regardless of the reason.

You should buy an off the shelf footbed by sizing to your heel and arch, then trim any excess material in front of your toes... hence the name "Trim To Fit". Try sizing up a size or two.
