Custom Footbeds / Orthotics
Custom foot beds and orthotics enhance your skiing from the feet up. It is a sturdy foundation for your body.
Custom foot beds can enhance performance and comfort in ski, snowboard, and telemark boots as well as everyday shoes. Custom foot beds achieve this by adding arch support to stabilize the foot. They aid alignment centering the knee over the center of the boot assisting skiers that may favor one turn over another. By being centered over your ski boots you are centered over your skis making turning right and left more balanced.
The Pro carries a variety of custom foot beds from Boot Doc and Instaprint to meet our customers' needs. All work is performed on site while you wait and we are able to tailor the custom foot beds to meet your needs. Your molds are not shipped out to a laboratory off site that only knows you by a number and adjustments take weeks to get completed.
The most custom and popular foot bed we make are orthotics. Orthotics for winter sports are made out of a semi-rigid material that can be transferred from boot to boot and can last well over a decade. Walking orthotics help align a person's knees over their feet and can help reduce abductions and adductions. They reduce pain and stress caused by everyday walking or running and can help in a variety of sports.
