Can custom footbeds be moved to another boot?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I am fairly sure I need custom footbeds since I keep developing a painful cramp in the ball of my right foot after being in my boot for a few hours.  It will go away if I take my boot off for about 30-45 minutes.  Then I can put it back on and go ski for a few more hours.  I'm trying to get through the season in my Tecnica Diablo Pros and will be replacing them for next season.  They were shell fit when I bought them and were the best fitting boot I've ever owned and still feel better than most any other boot even with packed out liners.  So the question is if I get custom footbeds now will I be able to use them in another boot next season?  My next boot will more than likely be a 98mm last Full Tilt, Dalbello Krypton Cross ID or Il Moro ID.

footbeds can almost always be moved to another boot, but why assume they will fix your problem?  Have you needed them to fix cramping problems in your other boots?  Have someone evaluate your fit and the cause of the problem before you spend money chasing after solutions.

I've never had custom footbeds.  I have tried, without a lot of success, several different types of non-custom ones including Superfeet and heat moldable Sole.  The Sole footbeds were very disappointing and the Superfeet were moderately OK for a while.  I have high arches and a high instep.  Who do I have evaluate the fit?  If I go back to the guy I bought these boots from he will tell me I need custom footbeds because he told me that two years ago when I told him I sometimes had this problem.
