Arch support, raised around the heel, and a ridge you can grab with your toes are nice features.

The new LF pads feel like Nike Air's on my heels, something else really got to try. Also a good one are Hein's straps and pads, very gripy and made with a type of memory foam thats very nice.

da kine pads make my feet ache. i don't know why & am the only one i know with that problem.
otherwise, these'd be my favorites.
the x-shooter pads are my weapon of choice right now - you won't get more comfy than this.

Not exactly pads but for foot support I'd be looking at M1 Bindings....

Gotta be the best thing that hit a board deck in years.

There was some discussion about this a few weeks.

I found m1s combined with NSI skate pads hurt my feet. I would get cramps in the middle of the foot. With those same pads and last years airush adjustable wide straps I rarelyhad this issue.

I just got some LF interface pds and straps and they are the most comfortable and best attachment to board yet! plus they come with a heel bungy that doesn't break on your first crash unlike the bicycle tubes

I have to second the LF strap suction being the most comfortable. These pads and straps are the best made, period. They are contoured to your foot, hold your legs in the proper position, and never have that bottom out, board hitting heel feeling when you come down fast from a lit jump. Plus they come with the option of having nifty heel straps that hold your foot in like it's in a binding.

Try Daryl at Extreme Kites, he'll hook you up.

Comfortable and good support for your feet.
