Any Recommendations For Supination

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I've got supinated feet. I've been skiing Technica Dragon 100's for the past 3 years, with Superfeet footbeds. I recently placed heel wedges (1/2 wedge type) under the outside of my heel between the footbed and liner - this really seemed to help flatten my skis during a natural stance. Definitely an improvement, but probably not perfect yet. Any suggestions ? I probably wont make any 'drastic' changes (new boots / visit to a bootfitter / custom footbeds) right now as it is nearing the end of the season. Any quick fix ideas to try now? If anything more drastic - I'll wait until next season so as to have plenty of time to fine tune things. I'm not having any huge problem, and not currently in the market for new boots - but if there are some suggestions on quick fixes for now, or more drastic changes for next season, I'm open to suggestions.

What have you done to align the cuff or check alignment for canting?

Boots and bindings are "off the shelf" The boots have the typical 'cant' adjustment (one side only), which is really nothing more than cuff alignment, a few dgerees either way - 3 position adjustment. i've got them set up so that they line up with my leg as close as possible. Haven't done anything with true cant changes yet.

The "canting" screws on the side of boots are indeed cuff alignment and not canting but are an essential first step in alignment.  How did you make the adjustment, feet in shells only or feet in shells with liners?

...removed liners, feet in shell only. I've also tried adjusting screw to different positions just to see if it felt different, but didn't really notice all that much difference - so left it at closest match to being parallel to leg.
