Not exactly. What I was trying to explain is the new insole was slightly larger than the original. It widened out the based of the liner which created a little more room. As I mentioned in the beginning of my thread. It is a situation that probably won't apply to some, but it worked for me. I also agree that I could have got the liner packed out more at a shop, which would have ultimately done the same thing. But, it does prove that factory insoles can cause discomfort.
