SKIING WITH ORTHOTICS
Like cycling, skiing is a sport with no landing. Orthotics track your knees and hips from your feet while optimizing your stance and posture.
The control of your skis comes from a stable and well-balanced position of your body within the ski boots. Keeping your hip-width apart and the skis parallel to each other, with your ankle, knees and hip slightly bent will all feel much more natural to you with custom moulded insoles.
Whether you practice at a professional or recreational level, it will be easier to improve your skiing technique following the 90 minutes we will spend together at PODO. Bring your ski boots and some ski socks to run our tests in the best conditions.
Ski boots are the best orthopaedics shoes.
Ski boots are the best footwear to accommodate orthotics, from the volume they offer to their exceptional rigidity. You'll even find that skiing becomes much easier with a pair of custom moulded orthotics! When you want to turn right, you press left and when you want to turn left, you press right! Easy, isn’t it?
Foot fitting before boot fitting!
Just as the bike is essential to cycle, ski boots are the number one accessory for skiing. In both cases, the feet must be fitted for orthotics first, accessories always come second once your stance and posture has been addressed. This provides you with more support and the right alignment before even touching the gear. When getting a new set of orthotics, make sure you visit your boot fitter to adapt the sock or the shell of your ski boots to your freshly realigned body.
