I have a problem with my feet. When standing naturally, they form a V, just like Charlie Chaplins. This is sometimes useful because it gives me added stability, which is handy when youre standing in an accelerating subway or a bus making a sharp turn. Unfortunately it also makes skiing very difficult,
since keeping your feet parallel for more than a few minutes can be quit uncomfortable. Over the years, Ive met a fair number of people with this exact problem. So for mutants like us, I suggest designing ski bindings that attach to the boot in an adjustable angle. Problem solved.
If this has been baked, please let me know (as I know you will anyways).
||Okay, but I suspect you're increasing the odds of doing damage to your feet/ankles.

||But other problems will present themselves. I'm sure there are several control issues with having your foot out of parallel with the ski, not to mention repeatedly broken and twisted ankles caused by toe or heel overhang.
