    Insoles in Boots

    My current boots fit great and are really comfortable, but walking 20+ km in anything is going to leave your feet feeling it a little. I'm wondering if anyone uses some form of gel insole (or other design) in their boots? I'd never considered it before, but don't see why it couldn't be helpful with reducing some foot soreness at the end of the day.

    I have a pair of Superfeet in every pair of boots and most of my shoes. They fit my feet well enough that I've never needed to buy expensive orthotics.

    They are firm, similar to the footbed on a Birkenstock sandal. My feet love 'em.

    I use SofSole Perform Athlete, which are a gel insole. I have replaced all of the insoles in my shoes and boots with these. They make a huge difference, and are around $25 a pair. As well as Mark's, you can get them at SportChek or Atmosphere. I tried Superfeet which are a great insole but they do not work for me as I can't have a firm/high arch support.

    I've used various brands, but always had insoles since 2010. Happy workers have happy feet.

    Go to Michal's and buy a sheet of cork, the thinner stuff. Cut out your insole and insert. What i find is the cork doesn't seem to make the feet sweat like the purchased insoles.

    I have 2 custom pair from Kintec. Not cheap at $440/pair, but unbelievably comfortable. (And rebuildable for $65/pair)

    Thanks all for the recommendations. Seems like such a no brainer now, I can't believe I had it in my head that nobody does this.
    Will certainly shop around.

    I think on a hard multi day hunt you should have 2 pairs and alternate them every other day to let one dry while you are using the other pair.
