Insole inserts for boots advice needed

I have a pair of Thiry Two Tm-Twos that I have been using for the past couple of seasons, and I have started to get really bad heel lift in them. I have heard that adding insole inserts can help eliminate this. I am looking at the Sole Softec inserts, but I'm not sure which ones to get. I am thinking the Ultras, but I am afraid they may be too thick and may cause my boots to fit improperly. So I may get the regulars. Does anyone have any experience with any of this? Thanks.

Get the Regulars..it says right in the description its for Medium to Tight fitting footwear, and specifically calls out ski and snowboard boots.

Do the inserts go inside or under the liner? My boots don't have removable insoles in the liner, but have removable footbeds under the liner.

They gotta go inside..
Looking at that boot im not sure if you could do insoles...

Your best bet is to take your boot to a sports store that carries Superfeet insoles, either the Red or Orange probably is your best bet...REI, Cycling Stores, Sports Authority etc all have them..

Most stores will let you take them out of the box and try them on...put them in your boot and see if they even fit..and if they do see if it helps your problem.

Ok, cool. Thanks for the advice. Why would I not be able to do insoles?

You already have their "midsoles" under the liner...
So you have no insole to remove, so im not sure if you could fit one or if it would screw up your boot fit too much...only way to know is to try...

Superfeet are the way to go hands down. I was experiencing sore feet early last year. Slapped in the Superfeet and it felt like walking on a cloud. The insoles def go inside the liner.

The problem this man faced is his Thirty-Two boots dont have insoles, so he cant replace them. For whatever reason in their infinite wisdom over there they put his sole between his liner and boot shell...which means nothing but Thirty-Two's midsoles will work properly...

I agree Superfeet are the bomb i have orange in my Burton Ruler boots and work great.
