Question for the Experts
I've picked up the Dynafit TLT6 P (recommended after foot assessment at a shop, but boots have not been set up as yet) and in reading the owners manual I see the following statement:
"Footbeds are usually not needed in TLT6 boots, as the boots are developed around a close fitting anatomical last. To accommodate a wide variety of feet, a top quality, lightweight foot bed for medium to low volume feet is included. "
Full disclosure - I'm a PSIA Cert ski instructor and my alpine boots have custom footbeds as well as minor sole grinding of approximately 1 degree. I'm also a graduate of Masterfit U so I understand the value of custom footbeds for comfort and performance in an alpine boot.
I guess I'm just looking for some feedback from the experts on the above statement provided by Dynafit. Given that my foot has been rated unremarkable, relatively "standard" (med volume, med arch) by bootfitters in the past, should I consider a lower cost/non custom footbed in a boot which I will be skiing offpiste/backcountry and not in resort?
In addition - I made some footbeds when I took Masterfit Associates Plus which were used in my previous AT boots but have been relegated to my ice skates since they are too high volume to fit in my TLT6's.
Is there a lower volume off the shelf footbed that perhaps I should consider?
tks for any thoughts/feedback.
