2014 Gear Guide: Boot Accessories

Better Your Boots

Even the most high-end boots usually skimp on insoles. One of the best things you can do is put in a nice aftermarket set—most pro riders do. Not only will you immediately notice the difference, but better foot alignment translates to better body alignment, which ultimately equals better balanced shredding and less fatigue.


The OG of the insole world. Check out the new merinoGREY ($45) version for added warming/cooling and moisture wicking; or go for the KORK Pro ($99, pictured) for a custom molded cork fit that will last for years.


Endorsed by the man himself, the Travis Rice Remedy Pro Model ($45) features gel padding in the heel and a fully moldable foam build.


Foot Balance

Created by a group of Finnish physiotherapists, this crew works closely with professional athletes, medical professionals, and footwear designers. Check out the Performance model ($80) or Race Heat (pictured) compatible with Therm-ic boot heaters for that deluxe fit and warmth.
