It is not uncommon to find that some modification to the boot is required to get an optimal fit. There are several ways to achieve this:

  • Footbeds - There are a variety of high performance footbeds available to suit differing needs.
  • Volume Adjusters - A thin insert which can be added under the footbed to reduce the overall volume of the boot. This can make up to a half size difference in fit.
  • Rubbing Bars - Some people have specific foot problems (e.g. swollen toe joints) which can cause problems when fitting new boots. It is worth knowing that boots can often be 'stretched' in specific areas to ease any painful rub points. Some specialist shops have rubbing bars specifically designed for this purpose. It is also possible to modify slightly heel and toe shapes to improve the fit of a boot. However this is a job best done by a trained boot fitter and we would recommend that it is done as a 'retro fit' adjustment.
