Im looking to get some new bindings soon and want the softest footbed. What do you guys recommend? I dont have time to demo everything.

I haven't tried the watsons yet but I bet they're just as soft.

Do you like the support/stiffness of your Parks?

I like the support of the Parks and the footbed is ok. I just want the softest footbeds and landings to help with some of the abuse my knees take. I had acl surgery august 10 and have ridden the past two weekends with no problems, but would like some more cushion.

any of the top Liquid Force bindings are my choice. I think I've ridden most of the brands out these days, and the LF footbed is like a pillow.

i have ridden most of the hyperlite bindings and they do not even compare with the LF shanes. i personaly ride the shanes. my feet never go to sleep and my knees dont hurt on landings in the flats. i want to try the ronix ones. does anyone have any comments about the ones?

wow..... I have ridden the shanes and the watsons, and they have nothing on any of the new CWB bindings....

The new Zeus binidngs, you can push ur thumb into the footbed and it feels sooooooo soft..... Most comfy bindings ever!!!

I am surprised by most of the liquid Force suggestions... I personally think that LF has some of the stiffest foot beds around. but everyone has different feet and opinions, FOR THIS REASON I SUGGEST YOU GO TO A STORE OR TWO AND TRY ON ONE OR TWO HIGHEND BINDINGS OF EACH COMPANY AND JUMP UP AND DOWN WITH THEM ON YOUR FEET AND SEE WHICH PILLOWS YOU THE BEST.

people will not agree with me saying LF beds are stiff, BUT I Think and HOPE everyone will second this idea of jump testing bindings in the store.

Good Luck

If you like the parks then get the shanes. Similar support/stiffness with softer footbed and closed toe. If closed toe isn't your style then get the open toe.

I made the switch from my LF's to hyperlite Murrays. Steve these things are comphy as hell. Deffinatly super soft. There are probably some others that are softer. Im thinking more in the lines of CWB. Ive tried a bunch on an the factions seem to be super soft as well. You should talk to Gary. He is riding the factions. Look into a few of those. I would say stay away from the LF footbeds. I mean there soft but not INCREDIBLY soft. From my experiences. but maybe they changed for 07? I duno. My 2 cents..

Steve,

07 CWB line has new foot beds and comfort is what itís all about. I love the Factions but I got the Zeus and I am sticking to the Zeus. The difference is in the stiffness. The Factions are a lower cut boot with the ankle support in the medium range. The Zeus is a higher cut boot with very snug/stiff support. The uncomfortable feel of the overlay in the 06 is gone in 07 with the addition of the articulation toe piece.

I have to put a vote in for the Ronix One, I think they are softer then the LF's. They honestly feel like you are wearing a sneaker. I am very impressed so far.

I have a bad knee and ankle and the 07 LF Shanes are great.

Anything over $300 should do the trick!
