Resurrected thread....

Since you bought both the Remind Medic and Remedy insoles, can you give us some feedback about how the two models compare? Are the Remedy ones even being sold anymore?

Thanks,

Yea. It doesn't effin matter haha. I spent so much time trying to decide. They don't treat your foot that differently....Sort of gimmicky honestly. The remind has a bit of a deeper heal for "arch" support (they all mold to it eventually)
while the medic has a full liner of "extra" support foam on the bottom....BAsically they just added or took away a little bit of foam here and there, and changed its color.

Only difference you'll notice is that one MAY feel better than the other just based on how it fits into your boot. But it would be a subtle difference. They did come half a size smaller than I expected. Soooo yea. They're good, just dont fret over picking one over the other.

Flips712, If your using the Medic in footwear that is a snug fit? (...like work boots without removable footbeds or the like.) The Medic's are a high volume insole. You might find they take up too much room to make for a comfy fit. I went with the "bigfoot" Which is a less thick insole, they were still too voluminous to use in my work boots! They work well in my hiking boots and tennis shoes once I removed the stock insoles tho.

I personally didn't care for them in my SB boots. (...I am a tough fit with any footwear and needed custom molded insoles from Sidas for my boots!) Many here on the forum use Remind's for their SB boots and LOVE 'em!

Btw Scatterbrain,.. For a member with little activity and only a few posts? Nice catch spotting and making a prompt reply to your unanswered "Zombie" thread from over 2 years ago!! Odd coincidence that!

Thanks for the prompt replies! I ordered new boots (32 lashed and tm-two) along with some different insoles of differing volume (Footprint Kingfoam orthotics and a bunch of models from Sole). Wanted to order the Gamechangers but I can't find them in a small enough size for my women's 5.5-6 size snowboard boot.

Thanks for the info on the reminds.

Medics all the way. For skateboarding, the thinner (remedy?) ones, if you want to feel your board, but they pack out. Medics on the other hand are still rocking solid, even after 50 days on the snow. Haven't packed out, good heel and arch support. Definitely better than any stock insoles. Haven't tried anything from other manufacturers, but as soon as the D3O's will be available, will try those.

I've got Medics as well, and I can't wear them in my SB boots. They take up too much space and my feet cramp with them in. Both boots are quite new and not packed out though, so I'm hoping they'll fit with 10-15 days put on the boots. Not entirely sure I need them anyway, my feet have been pretty good to me. Just added them on to a big purchase because $40 was nothing compared to the total

I consider my feet to be normal as well but stock insole are usually worthless so I discard them immediately. I thought my last boots were the right size since they felt snug with my toes pressed against the liner. But after packing out I got foot cramps, which could probably be fixed temporarily by a high volume insole but I found a great price on new boots that I couldn't resist.

Curious to hear people's thoughts on heat molding. I had my last pair heat molded by a shop but am considering letting it form to my foot naturally this time around as long as it's bearable.
