Insoles for hunting boots?
« on: November 01, 2017, 04:54:57 PM »
I have been searching for the right insole for a pair of hunting boots I have. So far I have used 2 different pairs and it seems like the arch on them just digs into my foot and is super uncomfortable. is there a pair that is a lot of peoples go to?

Superfeet for me

If the arch seems to much, try wearing them for short periods of time at the beginning and work your way up.

I have super feet in almost all the shoes and boots I wear. Really like them.

Lathrop and sons insoles work great for me. The superfeet and such are great in tennis shoes and the like but they're just too much in a hiking boot. The Lathrop insoles are wider than your feet and kinda wrap around your foot to secure it in place better and give you arch support. I didn't think much of them at first but the more i use them, the more i like them.

I have the sol mountaineering ones. I had the begging of planter flappy foot or whatever it was called, tried super feet and took them back the next day. these were reccomend to me, put them in the oven at 200 for a few mins or whatever the instructions say. fits perfect to my feet, and fixed my aching arches. highly reccomend for hunting boots  https://secure.yoursole.com/us/mens/footbeds/performance-thick/

Did you pull the thin ones out that came with the boots?  Years ago, I just did one of those things at Walmart or Fred Meyer that you stand on and it analyzes your foot pressure then gives a suggested model.  It worked well for me.

I have been buying the Merino wool SuperFeet.  They are similar to the green superfeet, but with Merino Wool top layer.  I have them in my ski boots and two pair of hunting boots.

Used to us the superfeet until I saw a podiatrist last year who suggested the sofsole brand. Use them in several pairs of shoes and am very happy.

Feet are different, what works for me may not work for you.  There are tools online or at the stores to help figure out whether you need an insole and which one.

I did pull the factory insoles out, but that might be the thing to do is get my feet analyzed for shape or something?

dunno if that was directed to me or not,  but yes I did pull put the orignal insoles. you heat the sol ones up and they conform to your foot for perfect arch support

Superfeet or Fleet feet.  They fit your foot to the insoles in the store.

seems like there are a lot of different models of super feet, how do you know witch one is for you? maybe trial and error is the best way just because everyone's feet are so different?
