Any pronators using Intuition liner w/o footbeds?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I just scored a great deal on a pair of '08 Full Tilt Camo boots & I don't think they've got enough volume to use my current footbeds with the Intuition liner. I've got fairly severe pronation so I need the support. Will these liners provide enough support for me without a footbed? I tried the boots on (without heating them) with the footbeds, but the instep pressure was unbearable. I've been following this thread http://forums.epicski.com/showthread.php?t=64525 to get some advice, but nobody addressed the support issue.
I live in Oklahoma, so I don't have access to a decent bootfitter. I figured that I'd wait until I got to Pagosa Springs to get 'em cooked & fitted. Will the liners "mush down" when heated to allow for the extra bulk of the fotbed? Or can you recommend an ultra low volume footbed that'll work? I was thinking about trying a low-volume Superfeet footbed.

Yes the liners will compress in response to any pressure when heated properly and should accomodate your footbeds. I do not like to mold these liners without a footbed. If it turns out you need more volume in the shell to allow the liner and footbed, you may be able to sand down the boot board a bit.

I think a Superfeet off the shelf trim to fit (blue) is a great choice with these liners.

These guys are correct. Of course whether they will "mush down" enough is related specifically to how much space your foot needs in these boots.
