yo sup guys Kevin here so we just got a call from our friend Josh here in jindabyne here except the ESS snowboard shop and the head boot fitter there Joey offered to make us a pair of custom insoles so in the past I've had some problem with with boot pain it's a pretty common among snowboarders actually so whatever it can help with with that pain and just make snowboarding more comfortable I think it's definitely a good thing to take advantage of that today I'm gonna head down to the ESS Sport Shop meet up with these guys and get some custom insoles made I've never had a pair of custom insoles I've always wanted some super stoked to get out here and get some made let's do it got our boots with us so TJ why do we have our boots they're gonna have to trim down the foot beds to match our boots so it just makes it a little bit easier if we have our boots with us yeah yeah this machine here is what you're gonna put your feet into we're gonna get the mold to your feet which is gonna be nice and then we'll use these four beds we'll heat them up so they become super malleable and then once we have the cast of your foot will slide those babies in there you put your feet on them then they'll cool down to the shape of your foot which is awesome and then you guys are free from there I turn them over peel off the magic sticker glue on top of it of posting so then from there I grind that posting down so it sits flat so that way the footbed can't you know Rove inside the boot right we take your old footbed put it on top like a template chase it out and then we just tape right so if it's inside the boot so what we're gonna make today is it for a bit like this so this footbed is gonna be soft in the front I prefer these most of the time for snowboarding and then once we make this we'll put a posting on the bottom and we can control how much support we give the person the reason why these have been a bit more popular and more comfortable for snowboarding is because the front of your foot is soft you're not so rigid inside there and the fact that you can control and give it a little bit less support that's been the secret to snow morning footbeds yeah so in a lot of boots sorry in every single boot skiing or snowboarding it's gonna come with a little bit the problem with these four beds is they provide no support at all for your arch of your foot so what ends up happening as your foot goes from a neutral position to pronated all day long inside that boot so when you get yourself a footbed that's gonna support your arch the whole time so in theory your foot staying in the same position the whole time and you're going to get the most response whether you're skiing or snowboarding the reason why they can't put these guys inside every boot because everyone sweats to fit how to see you please so you got a lot of flex going on there like that okay good flex this way alright toe side you're gonna have to make even more of an angle so we're gonna push this button it's gonna make some noise you're gonna vibrate what it's gonna do is it's gonna move all of those you don't live inside here to get the whole shape we just put his feet inside this Austin casting tray and what we did is we got the mold of his foot so right now what I'm doing is we're heating up these foot beds so they come really not able and then we put them in the casting tray under his foot we've got tjs foot back in them until they cool down once they cool down they set and then we can go to the second step which is flipping them over and glueing they're posting in the bottom and then shaving it down which is pretty cool you're not gonna throw these out when you get a new boot you're gonna put them straight into your other ones yeah yeah I just wanna put a bit of pressure here so learning so much about the whole process here guys there's a lot – it would be great to minimize any kind of snowboard boot foot pain as possible and yeah if this helps you guys have to be amazing I can't wait to see the finished product here I think it's gonna be a game-changer so excited to finally get some proper custom foot beds and we can throw in our shoes so that's just a bonus free shake have a look so we got the mold from the casting tray now what we're gonna do is we're going to take off his head he sit back and add on a piece of posting so this post thing is gonna help the footbed sit flat because if you didn't have that there hit the round heel cup she would just roll around inside the boot and you wouldn't really get as much support as you wanted treat your feet boys and girls seriously it's one of those things where it's a bit of investment and stiffly not a cheap purchase but the best part is is they're definitely gonna outlive the life of the boots so you'll be able to put them in your next set of boots and hopefully even further on than that once you have a set of foot beds I promise you wouldn't go without them to feel like home it's so amazing to see everything that goes into it and I feel like it's really gonna pay off it's gonna translate into being much more comfortable out there with the boots and also performance wise too so I'm so stoked thanks so much Joey for helping us out yep shout out Josh Joey ESS board store appreciate you guys also guys check out the link to Joey's YouTube channel it's called snow guru Joe go watch his videos give him some love give him some likes and comments let's go home get some sleep and get ready for rent tomorrow yeah appreciate it guys see you tomorrow

    This is an awesome video. I have always had problems with my feet falling asleep in my boots. I have a really high and strong arch, so anytime I give it too much support it cramps up. I currently don't even put insoles (even the ones that come with my boot) in. Is there a way to increase the amount of space by the arch in the boot? The bottom and then middle toes go numb first. I ride with 32s and they have been heat molded already.

    What’s your take on these it’s been 5 months. Are you still using them & have you did a follow up review video?

    I recently bought a set of Remind Medic insoles (I'm nowhere near anywhere that does custom insoles, would've preferred customs). I use them in my 32 TM3's, which come with a hyped up and technical insole. Although the adjustable arch support of the 32 insoles does help, I found the aftermarket ones to be much more comfortable and much better at shock absorption.

    Glad I found this video! I am an Aussie who has travelled to Japan for snowboarding, and funny enough I found Joey in Myoko! He whipped me my mate up with a pair of custom foot beds, he also had some really good advice for setting up our bindings and gave our boards a top quality hot wax. Foot beds are the go for anyone with sore feet, makes for a very comfortable ride. Joey's a top bloke and I recommend everyone to go see him!

    Hi Kevin/TJ. Love your channel! Custom insoles look interesting. I'm constantly looking for womens snowboard boots in a wide fitting. I have small but fairly wide feet, so boot pain across the width of my foot is always an issue! I know there are several men's boots in a wide fitting, do you know of any boots / particular brands that are a more forgiving women's boot? Thanks!
