Default post your prices with your rec's on this one.

how much were those sass? how bout yours slush? EDIT: what is that in US dollars?

so here's the real deal:

everyone's foot is different. slush puppies foot obviously has a really high arch.. maybe too high for an aftermarket, although there really are alot of options out there...

most people's feet aren't quite that severe which is probably why not everyone is walking around in custom orthotics can be pretty expensive.... what is it typically about $100-200?

there are so many good aftermarket insoles now that its worth most people's time to check out the very many $30-50 options. its probably pretty hit and miss to try and order them online so try and find a store that stocks a few brands and go in there and stand on a bunch of them and see what feels best. some of them can even be 'custom molded' further by heating them at home in your oven and then molding them yourself. i use the Sole EVs and they can do this, but i have never tried it.

nothing wrong with paying more and getting custom ones tho... some people for sure need them and everyone could probably benfit from them. without question everyone can benefit from changing out the insoles on 98% of all snowboarding boots because they're pretty much all garbage... , but in then end that's probably ok because you really should be trying to get something that fits your foot well.
