Possible to get replacement "stock" footbeds for ski boots?
I bought a used pair of boots, and I threw out the original footbeds that came with the boots (Nordica Speedmachine 12's). I don't need anything fancy, but I'd like to find something similar to the basic stock footbed to replace them with as opposed to a cork or Superfeet footbed. Do retailers sell these, or maybe the manufacturers?

Your boots are worth $700.
Your lift ticket is worth $90.
You wanting to put $.45 footbeds in your boots seems kinda silly! Most bootfitters just throw them away btw.
Get some real footbeds. It's the single best thing that you can do for your skiing.Leave No Turn Unstoned!

Superfeet and Sole make non-custom footbeds (Sole's are moldable, but in my opinion function better unmolded) for $30-$40 that are a big improvement on the stock foam thingies.

Also, I've tried the Sole and SF inserts, but they all have too much of an arch for my foot. Basically, I'm just looking for a simple footbed that takes up some volume- like the stock one that has a little bit of heel support.

Toast, PM sent.
I figured someone on TGR would have extras lying around.

a lot of ski shops will have a box full of these things and will be more than happy to send you home with some- after they give you the custom footbed spiel, of course.

Any off the rack cheap foot beds from the local drug store will work with out the shipping hassles. The relatively cheap super feet green foot beds work great for people with normal feet, and are much better then the stock (throw away) beds.
I agree it is a constitutional right for Americans to be assholes...its just too bad that so many take the opportunity...iscariot

Downunders - cheap and effective.
Surprised you had problems with SOLE though - you should be able to heat mold most of the arch right out of those.

Get the superfeet trim to fits.

blue superfeets have a relatively low arch but a nice heel cup. Cheap too.
