Sidas Conform'able Ski PRO footbeds

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I was wondering how the Sidas Conform'able Ski PRO footbeds are? I have a chance at a good deal on them and I was wondering how they are? This will be my first time into custom footbeds and I was wondering where they rate? Also what should I expect to pay for custom molding? And lastly what is a better process to fit them (laser or vacuum)?

Blizzboy 283,

Sorry, I am not familiar with the Sidas's current line of footbed blanks but if it is a blank, it is not the material that is that important it is how and who is making the footbed that makes it or breaks it. Hope this makes sense.

as Bud says the materials are fine...it is all down to your foot and the guy making it

good luck

I use the ski pro for the custom footbed when I foam Strolz ski boots most of the time, but not exclusively. Even though the ski pro is not posted, they are reinforced and are very nice.

I use the HD vac to make the mold and have my clients in a seated, none weighted position.

As the other said, who is making it is key.

So is it important to be seated and not standing? I'm pretty sure they will be using the HD Vac.

Sorry it took so long to get back to you...

Having the footbed made in a seated, none weighted position, keeps the foot from collapsing (pronating), and as far as I know is the standard for most shops selling Conformable footbeds.

SBG unfortunately what we see over here is that the vast majority make their footbeds fully weightbearing [and this shows in the quality of the product]

I asked the bootfitter about weighted and unweighted and he said that he has done both over a period of ten years and said that he had better experiences with the standing position. I would have gone with the recommendations here but the guy impressed me enough to listen to him. Thanks for all the help and man do I feel like a fool for not skiing in footbeds until now!

Blizzboy283,

The important thing about all of this is that you get a footbed that gives you the support, performance and comfort that you need.

I have had 100% success with my non-weighted techinque. That includes extremely flat feet all the way up to an extremely high arch situations.

By the way, Conformable are not the only footbeds that I make, it all depends on the situation.

Have a great winter...

Thanks for all your help, I think this one fits the bill.
