Do it. You'll wonder why you waited so long. My feet are EEE, no arch. You can spend anywhere from $25 to $150, but unless you're really serious, the $70-90 range is usually a good quality footbed. Remmeber that the boot is the most important part of your gear pile, make it fit right.

Is one brand of foot bed better than the others? After reading all of the posts on what a difference they make, I'm heading out this weekend to get a pair.

There is a lot of debate over which system is better. I like Superfeet Kork and using the non-weighted method (foot bed is molded to your feet with out any weight on your foot). I believe most of the better fitters use this method however some use different footbed material. The non-weight bearing system locks your foot in a neutral position as compared to standing on the mold to get the footbed which will put your foot in a flattened out or in most cases pronated position. exactly what you are trying to avoid by putting in the footbed. Most important is you want a footbed that is solid (not molded) so there is no way you can compress or deform the footbed by just standing on it. Hope this helps you decide.
