update: i just took out the standard footbed that comes with it, feels fantastic, i'm kinda new to maintaining my own gear, but is it ok to not have a footbed? and what does a footbed provide for the rider? Thanks guys

you definitely want to have your foot bed in there, because that is the main support system for your whole body. So you really want some kind of foot bed in there. A lot of the kids i know like to put their skate shoe liners in them. Or you go use Dr. scholls gel foot beds too,

When I have a pressure point I wrap it with stripe of fabric or something then put my shoes/boots on and walk around - it's a bit painful but it works in most cases Wink

Riding should pack down the foam more than just walking around the house.

Here is a footbed company if you are still having problems after riding for 10 days:


as well as: Superfeet (Blue, Orange, and Greens) as well as SOLE footbeds.

I've been using the red winter superfeet in all my boots, and they work pretty well.  But for that type of pressure point, I'd look into getting them heat-molded (if they can be) or just stick with them for a few more sessions so that they pack out more, depending on how bad the pressure point is.  If it's really bad, the boots might just be the wrong shape for your feet regardless of what you do with the liner/footbed/etc.

check if they are heat moldable first or continue wearing them until they pack out alittle.

Thanks for the advice guys, I got a pair of Wigwams snowboard socks, theyre doin the trick atm, the extra padding surrounding the toes is countering the pressure point, hope this solution lasts haha, and yea, ive put the footbed back in, does feel a lot more supported, thanks again guys!

If it has heat moldable liners do it. When i got my new boots after the heat molding they felt so comfy, unlike other boots ive had before!

It makes sense because the foam gets suppressed exactly where needed and you are not going to loosen the whole liners.
