Liner Sleeves Amazing

I have thin ankles but wide feet. This was the missing price to puzzle for my newish (5 ski days) boots. Between this and the freeride footbed my boots feel snug as slippers. As a side note, both products lift the heal a little which I like, but I had to remove the heel lift I had previously purchased from Patriot. LOL
Like others here, the top of my foot was compressed and I was losing some circulation, so my boot fitter shaved the the bottom of the freeride footbed till is was perfect. Once everything packs down, I replace the footbeds and maybe add the heal lift.

The products and service from Patriot are second to none and allow a good fitter so many options to get your fit perfect without punching the boot out!

Fantastic improvement

I got these footbeds when buying my k2 revolver boots and they were easy to slip in and made a crazy difference compared to the stock footbeds. They supported my feet perfectly and have since really moulded in naturally. I would 10/10 recommend to anyone who is looking for a bit more of an edge on the snow!

My heels are good

Although I have not skied in them yet ( just installed ) I can feel the difference in my heel. I required Wide boots and heel lift was a big problem . Can’t wait to get on the slopes ,

This is what boots should feel like

In 40 years of skiing so far, the only time I've had boots fit my narrow ankles well was when they were brand-new. Then as the liners pack out, they get looser within the first season, I cranked the buckles more and lost circulation. Rinse and repeat.

I just bought these, put them on the liners while booting up in the parking lot, and was very happy with them skiing spring moguls. They locked in my heels and let the rest of my foot stay comfortable since I wasn't cranking the buckles. They work as advertised!

Buy them now

So I work in a ski shop that does NOT sell this product. I got an ad on Instagram and decided to check them out. I have skinny ankles and have always just dealt with heel lift in my boots. This product helped reduce my heel lift and made the boots fit better. I highly recommend this product to help with loose ski or snowboard boot issues.

Great for rear entry boots

I purchased the Nordica AF 110 boots. They are most comfortable but needed some mods for performance. I first added the Tru Straps which added extra needed at the top of the boot and relieves stress on the wire in the clamp which is susceptible to stretching or worse yet breaking, so they are also a safety net.
I also found the boots to have an extremely forward lean, to the point that it’s hard to lean any farther forward comfortably. By removing the rear spoiler and installing the tongue shim it gave me the ability to really lean into the slopes. Now I have the most comfortable easy in-out high performing booth on mountain!

Excellent Dynamic Support Without Immobilizing Your Foot

After watching so much bootfitting tutorial content from Craig's YouTube channel, I wanted to try out his footbeds, both because my existing cut-to-fit footbeds weren't working for me and to support a small business that openly shares their knowledge and experience with the end user. I'll preface with the fact that my feet are fairly "standard" without any tricky bootfitting needs, and the only challenge is that I have a longer arch for my size foot and height. I ended up buying one size up, and trimmed down the length by a cm so the arch is proportionally longer relative to the overall length, and now I have a pair of footbeds that feel custom made for me. In general, I feel like I have a better sense of what my foot is doing, and would describe the support as progressive in the sense that the footbed isn't rigid or static in its support; rather, the support feels dynamic and proportional to the force applied . This last part is the key difference between Patriot Footbeds and others I've had - proprioception (nice $5 word). The flex along the footbed length-wise was a subtle, but beneficial change from overly stiff and blocked-off footbeds I've used before. The flex, coupled with the more spherical medial arch support made all the difference in the world to me. I don't have flat feet, but my foot would still flatten out with my old footbeds because those footbeds only supported the medial arch along the inside edge of the footbed. With the Patriot All-Mountain Footbed, the medial arch support extends across the foot to offer a wider base of support, but it did so without immobilizing my foot! Ski boots will never feel like slippers, but my experience has been that it's hugely beneficial to allow the foot's anatomy to dynamically respond to the forces involved when skiing. Don't let the description of "spherical support" deter you - it's not like stepping on golf balls, and even if you have the flattest of feet, I'm sure some heat molding would improve things. Overall, custom insoles can be great, but they can also be terribly expensive and ineffective depending on the skillset of who made them, and their school of thought in implementing them (i.e. immobilize your foot, weighted or unweighted, etc). I you have "average" feet, I don't think you can do much better than the Patriot All-Mountain Footbeds. They happen to be off the shelf footbeds, but the dynamic support and comfort they've offered has been one of the best values (price vs performance) I've had in ski equipment. Give them a shot, and don't be afraid to experiment. I tinkered by ordering a larger size, cutting it down, and now I have the best dynamic foot support I've ever had! Customer support after the sale is also phenomenal. Craig stands by his product, and my experience has been that they want you to be stoked on your new gear, and won't leave you hanging if you have an issue.

These straps changed my skiing

I just installed these on my boots (the guys at Patriot were super helpful with all my questions about the installation process). Over the weekend, I had a chance to get a morning of skiing in and to try the new straps. The skis just felt so much more responsive. I also liked that I wasn’t banging my shin on the front of the boot. This is a great strap, and I’ve already recommended it to others.

Comfort All the Way!

The Patriot replaced a pair of foot beds in my ski Boots and they had great support and comfort. Thank you!

Didn't quite work for me

Great concept, but unfortunately my boots were just way too tight with these in there. I'd need something maybe 50-70% thinner. I'm in a weird spot where there's just barely too much space in my heel pocket.

Great drop-in footbeds

Had my feet working in unfamiliar ways the first day out, but they're great and supportive straight out of the box. Might heat mold them for the coming season.

No complaints. Functions as advertised to fill space in the boots.

Immediate relief of foot cramping

Easy to install, great quality footbeds that have turned my ski boot situation from miserable to comfortably locked in. Feeling like I can ski much more aggressively with no shifting in the boot and not needing to overly flex my foot to hold onto the boot. Would recommend to literally everyone.

These made a big difference to the fit and responsiveness of my boots. My only suggestion would be to use a ratchet type closure to make them easier to tighten up.

Helps a lot!!

Much better hold than back and forth with J bars, etc. Seams could be a little more smooth to not create pressure points. Overall, awesome!!
