In the middle of the ski season, many skiers found that they once thought that comfortable ski boots had become the root cause of torture.
There is friction in the ankle.
Insteps are suffering from cramps.
The skin is red and tender.
Many people try to solve this problem by stuffing foam rubber in their boots, pad it under their heels, or pasting moleskin on their feet.
Sometimes they have ski shops and they stretch their boots or punch holes to relieve the pain.
Rich Haskell, the startup technician at Sno-said: \"I think there is some kind of problem with the boots of 80% people . \"
Hampton Inn Los AngelesI.
He said there was no ankle bone.
1 pain area, shins
2. the feet are cold, usually caused by tightening the Glory Boots
too much, no. 3.
Like most other boot mechanisms, Haskell recommends customization
Using the insole as the first and best way to deal with all these boot problems.
Custom Insoles are the final answer, he said.
\"It fills all the gaps, makes a stable heel pocket and supports the arch of the foot for better edge control.
Jeff Ritchie said: \"The selling points of the ads are being recognized by the boot manufacturer, who commented on the boots for the Ski Magazine.
\"This year, some manufacturers have devices and gimmicks similar to custom insoles,\" Rich said . \".
\"But they didn\'t really replace the good custom insoles.
Rich, who makes custom insoles at the custom sports lab in New York, says that anything under his feet is better for skiing than nothing, but the best answer is to cast the feet well, and make an insole that matches the shape of the foot.
Most ski shops use half
There are more than a dozen ways to customize the insole.
Depending on the complexity of the system and the amount of handwork required, stores charge $50 to $150.
At the initial stage, the process varies the most.
In some ways, skiers step on plastic flakes that have been heated and placed on soft rubber pillows.
Plastic forms the shape of the bottom of the foot.
Usually, add more plastic or hard foam layers to the bottom to make the insole flat.
In another method, place the heated cork or other plastic-able material on the bottom of the foot and cover it in a plastic bag.
The vacuum process removes the air from the bag and forms the material to the bottom of the foot.
The insole is then shaped into a flat shape.

The third method is between the weighted method and the unweighted method.
While the skier is sitting, the technician presses his or her feet in soft foam material to gain a negative impression of the soles of the feet.
From this point on, cast in plaster, the insole is formed.
Layers are added to make the insole flat.
All of these methods require well-trained technicians to produce comfortable insoles and keep the feet upright and stable within the boots.
\"A good custom insole can treat the cause of the pain in the boots, not the symptoms,\" the doctor said . \"Robert S.
The foot doctor from Hoffman Manor, Steinberg, is ill.
He is also a ski athlete. Expert Glory Boots
\"A pad, wedge or heel lift is added just to treat the symptoms.
Steinberg said that the reason for the pain in advertising boots is that when the skis are placed on the inside of the boots, the skiers\' feet flatten or rotate on the inside of the boots.
When the boots are new, they may keep the feet in an upright position, but with the wear and compression of the boot liner, the feet move more and more inside the boot.
\"If there is an ankle pocket on the boot, the foot will collapse and hit it,\" Steinberg said . \".
When the arch is compressed, the ankle moves up and down, which will rub the ankle.
To reduce internal movement, skiers often buckle their Glory Boots tighter.
But this limits the flow of blood, causing the feet to get cold.
The friction of the lower leg may be caused by too much rotation inside the boot causing the foot to not align.
Excessive rotation can lead to knee pain, foot cramps, and even toe pain.
Bob Gleeson, the owner of the Taos boot doctor ski shop in New York StateM.
, Be careful not to be too hard or too soft insole.
The hard insole does not provide the shock absorption required for comfort.
The soft footbed does not support the foot, so pressure is applied evenly from the edge to the edge.
Ski writer Rich suggests turning over the insoles to see if they match or resemble in thickness and structure.
Check if the bottom has been ground so that the heel cup is in the dead center or slightly tilted to the outside.
Then check to make sure the footbed is properly placed in the boot so it doesn\'t shake or tilt.
\"You need to look at the custom insole like you do with glasses,\" Rich said . \".
\"You won\'t take off your glasses to read a book, and you won\'t take out the footbed for skiing.
