Do Intuitions need to be remolded if I get a Custom Footbed?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I was wondering this because they were molded with my stock footbeds from my original liners.

I pronate so I would like a custom footbed.

yes.

FWIW, the rep at Intuition told me yesterday that they recommend molding without the custom bed because there is enough material under foot to replicate it. I got mine molded yesterday without it it. We'll see how it goes. Out of curiosity, I shoved my custom beds in the liner last night. It made the liner way to short to get my foot into. My guess is that the efficacy of the liner as footbed will depend on how whacked yer feet are.

I'd just try them first. Your footbed may not off-set things enough to matter. If you find hot spots and so on, you would probably get them done at that time.

I usually try the conservative approach whenever possible.

In my short history using intuition liners, I've taken the recommendations of the boot fitter. The firs time, I used the stock foot beds and no toe caps. Then I had the molded again with superfeet and toe caps. HUGE difference in comfort and fit!
I have Green superfeet in my Krypton Storms, and Pink Superfeet in my Kryzmas.
In taking the foot beds out of the liners, and inspecting, I can tell you that there is a volume difference in the two foot beds. I tried the pink ones in my storms without remolding. They were do-able, but not as comfortable as they were with the boot/liner they were molded with.

All the boot fitter I know recomend a toe cap and a foot bed.

Same here. That's why I was saying that I'd just wait to re-mold them. Mine were molded correctly (toe cap & footbed) when I got them, so if I got a different footbed, I'd just take the "wait & see" approach.

Yup!

I recently got new custom footbeds and my Intuitions molded by SierraJim. He put a thin sock over my foot, then the toe cap and a Surefoot bed (not the custom bed), then thin hose to hold everything in place. Then the whole thing went into the heated liner. Once it cooled, the custom footbed went in. Based on that experience, I'd say you might not have to remold, if they were molded for a comparable bed the first time.

As for whether to use a footbed at all, I think it depends on factors including how much volume the liner takes up in your boot, and whether you want your footbed formed with a neutral or positive weighting. Some people report great success without footbeds; some not.
