If you have ever had painful feet while snowboarding, this is going to be something I highly recommend checking out.
Remind Insoles Aftermarket Boot Liners
What are they?
They are aftermarket boot liners to replace the ones that come with your snowboard boot. Not only that, they come with a pair of aftermarket insoles as well.
Why might I want custom boot liners?
A lot of boots come with a generic boot liner + insole that usually doesn’t hold up and turns to mush pretty quickly. Crummy liners and insoles lead to foot pain when your feet don’t get the support they need.
If you’ve ever had foot pain while snowboarding, you know how much it can ruin your day.
The problem right now: Aftermarket footbeds/insoles are pretty easy to get and they work wonders (I swear by my custom insoles), but aftermarket liners are something you really only see with ski boots.
I love my custom insoles as you can see from their wear in the picture above, but I’ve always wanted aftermarket liners as well.
The solution: Remind Insoles must have read my mind. They are releasing these aftermarket boot liners starting from next season onwards.
Did I mention they come with with an aftermarket footbed/insole as well? While it’s not a super fancy custom footbed, like the one I use, it is one of the best non custom moulded footbeds and it will be 10 times better than the footbeds that came with your snowboard boots.
It’s killing two birds with one stone, you get some nice aftermarket footbeds AND you can aftermarket liners at the same time.
What will these cost me?
$129.95 is what they’ll be selling for starting from September 2012.
I think the price is very reasonable considering they come with Remind Insole’s aftermarket footbeds that are $29.95 by themselves. So essentially you’re paying $100 for the aftermarket liners.
For me, the price is easily worth it, especially when I know my custom moulded footbeds alone cost me $100-125 by themselves. I don’t put a price on the comfort of my feet.
Painful feet = I can’t snowboard.
Who shouldn’t buy this?
If you’re someone that only snowboards once per year, you probably don’t need these.
However, if you’re someone who snowboards regularly and experiences any form of foot pain, I’d definitely check these out. I know I’m going to be trying a pair of these next season.
Where can I buy these or find more info?
They should be available online from the Remind Insoles website and locally starting from estimated release of September 2012.
I recommend checking out the Remind Insoles website for full details once they’re released, plus Angrysnowboarder.com has an interview with the owner of Remind Insole discussing these aftermarket boot liners here: Remind Insoles Boot Liner Interview.
