Oooohhh, that is the best argument I've heard for inking feet in a while. So tempting! But it would take me off skates while they healed up so really probably not. Purple boots with either black or green straps would be sweet tho

Doc, do you have any info pertaining to the new Laser scan of the foot offered by BONT to get a precise mold (due to my high arches I was considering this..).

Thanks

Bont website does.. Looks like they only do it in 3 place, none of which are in the US.. Gee I wonder why?? That being said we have had some luck with pictures conveying the issue to Bont.

Dan has probably already looked into this, but there is the sock molding option, I think you start getting into the full custom cost then though.

That is where the full custom started with Bont. (The Laser came much later..) You get your own personal boot last made from the mold of your foot.

Yeah, I knew about the sock mold but I'm a tad skeptical about it. I wouldn't want to jack it up being that they're 100 bucks (socks + shipping back). I may give a try after a bit more homework..

Hook up with some inline pros. There are plenty in your neck of the woods... In fact, scroll back up a ways JandKLarson may be able to point you in the right direction..

Doing my homework now on the speed forum. I think it'll be a go with the molding socks and then some possible custom work for the cosmetic's of the boots. I'm tired of playing games, I want the $hit that's going to work right (for me). It won't be cheap, but SEDS is alway fun..
