Listen to Tjv28 and buy the Sole inserts, blue with Ed Viesturs on them. They are way better than superfeet. :tup: Buy them to your size
 pop them in the oven for 2 minutes, plop them in your boots and stand for a couple minutes. If you don't know who Ed Viesturs is
you owe it to yourself to do a little research!! Man amongst boys!!!

Everyone has different feet and you might even have differences from your left and right. Go get customs from an orthopedist and tell them what you're going to use them for. With my insurance they cost me ~$50 and I've had a pair that I wear in both my daily shoes and out hunting for over 10 years. I tried super feet and another brand I can't remember, they just don't stack up. Just had a new pair made so I can have a back up and not always swapping them between shoes.

Glad this popped up today. Over the years working on concrete everyday, dirt biking etc.. my feet are junk. I seen specialists, had molds, castings and pressure measurements done. All resulted in "custom" made inserts. Hated them all. Every one was worse than going without.
Some years back I saw this foot guy for a toe issue, he noticed the way I was walking. Off come the shoes and he started to kneed my feet with his hands while asking some questions. I thought this was kind of weird, getting a foot massage from some dude but he was watching to see where things hurt.
He recommended an over some cheep, off the rack insoles he said he could modify with a hair dryer. I thought the guy was nuts. All the "custom" stuff and this guy wants me to buy a ten dollar pair of inserts ?
Well I got them. Put them in my shoes and wow! Went back to him two days later, No adjustments needed. My toe issue was caused by lack of proper support on the rest of my foot and the way I was walking as a result.
I cant remember the brand but they discontinued the full sole ones I was getting after a couple of years.
After reading this thread I am going to try a couple that are recommended. I am Hoping one works.
