    Posted: Dec/11/2006 at 8:41am

My right foot is a half size larger than my left. It's usually not a problem but with snowboard boots I always seem to notice it. The end of my right foot goes a bit numb, gets really cold, and it just doesn't feel goodTongue High arches might also play into the problem, dunno. I've got a brand new pair of K2 Divines that I can still return.

Any ideas for what I could do about this? ...footbeds, going a size larger even...

ss has those footbeds, im not exactly sure what they do but it something about arches. I wouldnt go a size larger though then your left foot will not feel right. i think most peoples feet are not the same size, like yours. so dont feel lonely

i would definitely look into footbeds. probably even the pricey kind. there are multiple people on another forum that are singing the praises of Surefoot. it's not really cheap but you can use them in other shoes and they will tweak them for you until you are happy and comfortable.

this is what sierra carries

they have the blue superfeet insoles that are Designed primarily for tighter fitting footwear, Superfeet BLUE is our most versatile product.

Ideal for Low to Medium Arch shaped feet that cannot tolerate maximum support.

http://shop.sierrasnowboard.com/browse.cfm/4,2247.htm

and they also have the green superfeet insoles that are Designed primarily for footwear with a removable insole, Superfeet GREEN provides maximum support and shock absorption.

Ideal for Medium to High arch shaped feet.

http://shop.sierrasnowboard.com/browse.cfm/4,2249.htm



i recommend the green ones because they have better shock absorbers and they are made more for snowboarding

also, i know the sizing is a little bit confusing with the letters and all. so heres the sizing chart that will tell ya which size is right for you.

A fan of the show Heroes eh?
 
Thanks for the info! I've been having issues with my 2.5 season old Salomon F24's. Not much padding on those boots, I guess after all the use the boot finally packed in. Will be picking up the the greens per your recommendation.
