Where can I buy the dense foam, sticky sided material to put on boot inserts to prevent hot spots?

Finding good foam may be a little harder. Sometimes craft stores will carry small sheets of thin durable foam. I remember at one point finding some at Walmart. Cut up yoga pads, exercise pads, or sleeping pads will work as well, but you may need to thin most of them down.
But the first place I always go is to the sole of the foot. Do you use footbeds/orthotics in these boots? If the feet are not stabalized first then all you are doing is accommodating movement. This usually happens on the inside (medial) ankle because of pronation. Get that under control and you won't need to buckle the cuff as tight to get control over the ski.
