    I have a question about foot beds. What do you guys think of the Pearl Izumi Adjustable foot beds. in reading about them, They seem like they would really help my knee alignment issues

    • Eric, I think you would be better of with the sole foot beds I recommend. You can also use the superfeet brand. I am not too keen on the pearl izumi, specialized or trek footbeds. Hope this helps

  2. I have a question for Victor regarding custom footbeds. There’s a lot of instruction videos for sole moulding in normal shoes, but I’m wondering how to do that for cycling shoes. Do we heat them and then clip in on a trainer and pedal? or do we just leave the foot in certain position? Do we just stand flat on the ground? Thanks for the advice

    • Thanks for the question. I have tested both methods and have found that the molding works best in cycling shoes while you are standing on the floor. Not clipped in and riding. When you are standing a good fitter can manipulate your foot position for optimal set up. If you are just doing it yourself, just stand with your knees slightly bent and even pressure on each foot. Victor

  3. Never occurred to me to change insoles. I changes to SOF Sole inserts and my shoes are so much more comfortable. Thanks for the advice.
