Each boot has a slightly different footprint shape... when custom insole is made, it is trimmed to the shape of the that footprint. Usually, if the boots are not completely different sizes/shapes... the insole will fit in the new boot with minimal modification (you might have to trim like a quarter inch off the tip).
