Should feel pretty good from the start. They're not made to loosen up - they're supposed to be stiff.

I used to have the same issue.  i honestly think feet take a while to adjust not so much the actual binding.  Curious to hear others thoughts?

Depends a bit on air temp .. Winter here and daughter complaining about bindings to tight first ski in 3 months on Sunday . Think rubber stiffens up in colder weather

I heat mine up with hot water when it's cold. Easier entry.

Easier entry is your reason for hot water?? Ever tried soap?? It's much easier to grab than waiting for the whistle to boil.

Yup. Don't have to flush out hot water when I'm in. Soap is the devil.

I am also experiencing alot of pain in wiley bindings.  Its worth it for the control they give you but sometimes I have to take my feet out and let them rest after a few jumps.

If you can get in your wileys with just hot water, they're too loose.  The tackiness/stickiness of the rubber won't let you slide in when they're tight, and that's why you need soap.  You don't need much, and it'll wash out easily.  Or try a little shaving cream - it rinses super easy but can stain the bindings a bit.

I use shaving cream. Better than soap IMHO. As for the hot water, when I start skiing in the spring the water temp is below 50. That makes for STIFF rubber. Hot water softens it nicely. Been doing it for years.

When it's below 50, my bindings are warm and dry in the garage.

If your feet aren't starting to cramp after three jumps, you need new bindings

So there's 2 different "skiers" on here. So now I'm skier1. I don't have Wileys and don't recall saying my feetsies are hurting. Yes, I'm a sissy because I won't ski when the water is below 40.

Well, then I must have been replying to skier2. Why don't you mind your own business and stay out of our conversation?

Anyone heard of putting inserts into bindings for better arch support?

If you are ordering from Wiley, send them your custom orthotic sor whatever footbeds you like and they will install them for you (as I recall, at no extra charge). Much easier than trying to do it yourself. #iskiconnelly

What's with the sissy crap. Custom orthotics are a performance upgrade.
