People either seem to love the Aline footbeds or hate them.  The complaints I've heard are that they are bulky, cold, and make it more difficult to get your foot in the boot (since they add a high degree of friction against your socked foot).  I'm also trying to remember if they're heavily posted - to the point of locking out some useful medial ankle motion.

Nonetheless, a happy skier is a skier who will actually ski, so it's definitely a good thing to be able to ski without pain, but still maintain sufficient control through the boot interface.
