Insoles and Footbeds

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Some are as slick as polished leather while others have an abrasive surface that makes it hard to fit your foot in the boot. Does a snug boot hold the foot in place or does it also require a sticky surface on the top insole/footbed? Which type of insole do you prefer? Which one gives a skier the most support? If you like the sticky surface models how do you keep your socks from bunching up when you put on your boots?

An observation; most stock insoles are slick. I'd guess that's to help make it easier to get in and out of the new boots.

Had both. prefer slick. no discernable differnce in performance.

Can only surmise that slicker surface might allow more small movements of foot muscles, which is a good thing. But doubt it has much functional difference, probably marketing. FWIW most prescription orthotics are slick and stiff, molded plastic.
