Thank God I found Eric Ward and SBS. I have a heavy feet pronation that not only made my skiing inefficient and tiring but also really painful. I tried the SBS shins and my ski vacation became a real pleasure. I am no longer in pain and my skiing is smoother, specially using my inner edges. Eric also did some work on my boots to accommodate my awkward feet and now it feels more a glove than a boot! I bought some shins for golfing, running and hiking, they helped me cure a deep pain in my left heel and I have to say I feel out of balance when I am not using them. Thanks a lot The Foot Foundation, you really made my life easier.

In my career as a full cert profesional ski instructor and a professional yoga teacher, I always recommend the foot foundation's products for alignment. Eric changed my experience on skis. His alignment allowed me to use all my feet, therefore I can use all the muscles in my legs, and be a lot more efficient with my whole body. Before I would strain certain muscles, the one I used the most and make those that I didn't more and more lazy, creating more and more unbalance in my body. Arranging the way I step on my feet, not only improved consistently my skiing, but also changed my whole experienced of it, enjoying , flowing on my skis instead of straining to get to my other turn. Things that I couldn't do naturally before. That's why I recommend this product, not only to my clients that ski, but also to those who practice any other sports, and also to those who suffer pain in the body. Ex: back, hip, feet pain....To help the body get a better alignment.
I've been lucky to meet Eric and to be able to test the SBS System.
I've realized that its a very innovative and professional one fundamentally focused in each athlete's needs.

The SBS system is simple, efficient and accesible. The alignment improvement is perceived immediately. It generates settle and efficient changes. I have personally tested the shims and have recommended them to my clients. The results have been very positive!

I ski in Aspen for over 60 days a year. Many years ago I went to get measured and equipped with the SBS system- have always had issues with balance as I pronate quite a bit and had a hard time getting to the edges of the ski as a result. The system made all the difference- allowing me to get to the edges of the ski in a way that I could never have reached without the SBS system. I would recommend it to anyone who really wants to understand what being "balanced" on a ski is all about! It has allowed me to really enjoy the sport so much more!

I have been using a full function footbed from the foot foundation for several years now and it empowers me to be able to lay down near perfect high speed carve turns on fresh groomers. There is nothing like the feeling you get when everything stacks up hat right and you are able to hook up turn after turn without any compromise in speed and power archived in the turn. I have also found that the product has assistedy ability to ski bumps and steeps with more confidence then ever before. No matter what level skier you are and if you have never been able to find that right level of edge control you need due to possible misalignment, you will find your balance through the use of this product and proper coaching to harness the new found balance.

I’ve been doing a great deal of hiking, 5-9 mile trips at least once a week. The type of pain that I have is much less severe and much different than it has been in the past. I just wish I would have implemented the canting 20 years ago, right after my leg was crushed and the need arose. Thank you!
