  #1  custom molded insoles / inlays  Posted 13/03/2016 @ 11:03
Get some! They are awesome!
Tried all sorts to cure my heel lift, heel pads, heel lift solutions, Red superfeet, umpteen boots etc.

In Bansko last week & I got a pair of Sidas molded for less than £50!
bargain considering I paid £30 for superfeet.

I was a bit dubious at first, walked away to think about it. Then I thought that this is the only place that I have seen that does custom insoles in Bansko. What really made my mind up was The office was littered with photos of the guy with Bulgarian Ski team & he was obviously somehow associated with the team.

Anyway, the process took about 30mins & I have never had anything so comfy on my feet (no shoe, trainer or slipper!). As for the heel lift, guess I will know next time I board & this was a last day treat as I had Lev's to spend - but worth it just for the sheer comfort

The guy knows what he is doing , exactly same machine and kit TSA use , just cheaper .

I advise and use the same guy , and have sent several customer's to him .

Pity your back now as we have epic deep fresh snow over last few nights and more falling as I type, Horizon Festival is in full swing and the whole town is buzzing ,with exception of a few drunken idiotic brit males who decided to challenge locals and smashed a few things up , but for their effort , landed themselves in jail for a cooling off period .... along with making more locals think Brits are all like this .4


Lucky they didn't get a well deserved kicking from local ex pats and local Bulgarians

Why people don't respect other countries is beyond me .4


But ref OP great way to help poor foot fitting and body posture too

Have fun guys and gals , safe riding , just heading out to one of the venues to see a few DJ'S doing their thing
we r only here for a short time , live life to the full every day

Got back yesterday, so had the worst & best of the snow (First time on Tuesday I have everbeen up to the top of Todorka with clear views, but didn't take any photos always foggy when I go up! Pretty much snowed non stop from there on in + the lift was closed at times.)
I read about the beatings some brits got & probably fully deserved.

I was at 1st Horizon Fest & that sort of thing isnt for me. Waiting for next year's dates to know when to avoid before booking. Enough idiots on the slopes at times as it is (my only real complaint!). Watched from bar 180 one skier out of control grabbing a kids ski pole trying to stop, lucky the kid let the pole go or it would have been a mess.

Think this year is busier after last years snow. Hopefully puts a lot of people off going again. Don't want to see it turn into another Borovets.

Only downside was I forgot my knee brace - so spent a lot of time on my back when my knee gave out!

forgot to add..
THere is no gait analysis machine or biometrics scan. no computer, etc.
IMO, that is just BS & used to sell the product.

At the end of the day, they can put you on 100 machines to analyse your walk, but you still end up making an impression in some inflated balloon & then molded the sole.

My local rip of ski shop charge up to £200 - depending on the expertise you require!
Just a rip off ploy to string out the 2 hours.

Yes, Its the same building as Inter Bansko & George Ski School. Its upstairs opposite George's.
Walk down the hill from the happy end. First building when you cross the road!
