Sidas Custom Support Footbeds


Sidas specialise in designing and making products, and fitting systems, for foot support, boot fitting and Podiatry. 

As mentioned in our
general article on supportive footbeds Custom molded footbeds are the best result for foot stabilisation and comfort for most people. Here we will introduce the fitting system and some of the products we have available and the prices.



We have a Sidas Custom Station 2.1 with HD Vac 2 and Moduvac machines which we use to shape custom support footbeds.

The HD Vac has two pads filled with silicone beads which we use to make a mold of the base of your feet, with your feet, ankles and knees in good alignment. We then use the vacuum pump to suck the air from the pads making them firm. The actual foot beds start off flat, we heat them using the Moduvac vacuum heater which softens the resin and makes them malleable. Once at the correct temperature we press the footbeds into the molds and ask you to stand back on them, checking your alignment. As the footbed cools they become stiff and once cool they retain their shape for a long time.

Depending on the footwear you use and the activity the beds are for, we may use a Sidas Stabiliser to keep the footbed in the correct alignment and to stiffen them for extra support and to increase their lifespan.

There are several different ways to make the initial molds and many techniques to fine tune the footbeds and we will choose the method most suitable for your needs.

We stock different footbeds for the following activities.



The Sidas Custom Bike+ are the top of the range cycling footbeds. Using Transflux throughout the arch to produce an extra stiff footbed with superb power transmission, a Confortene pad under the ball of the foot for vibration damping and cushioning and an AMF microfibre top sheet the Bike+ bring cycling performance and comfort together. This stiff footbed doesn't require an extra stabiliser making them thinner which is ideal for use in cycle footwear.
