Default Insoles for wide boots?

Just picked up a pair of Salomon Dialogue Wides, size 8. Fit is great, and going to a wide boot has really solved a lot of my foot issues. The stock insole is decent and I'll definitely ride on it a few times to see how it feels, but chances are I'm going to move to a better insole. I over-pronate with both feet, so it's likely I'll need some sort of better support. That being said, the only insole I've found for 'wide' boots is the Superfeet wide green. Which I think I would need to trim down because it's made for 3E to 6E sizes. If it helps any, according to Salomon the Dialogue Wide is made on a 2E last.

Any suggestions would be great. Hopefully I'll end up not needing them, but at least I'll have a few reference points to go on.

Hey man welcome to comfortable riding, at least in the foot department. I made the move to the Salomon Synapse Wide three seasons ago and it changed my snowboarding life. I tried the Dialogue and they fit about the same, so I'm shocked to hear they claim a 2E last, I'm a 4E and spreading, either way you may not have to trim as much as you think. Good luck!

Absolutely, it was like night and day. Foot slipped in easy, no pinching/numbness. Have tried on 15+ pairs of boots before I took WiredSports' advice and made the plunge to order a wide and return if the fit was no good, but they fit like a charm!

Awesome, enjoy! FYI: Burton put out a wide boot as well this year, think it's the Ruler?

Yeah I was going to try the Ruler if the Dialogues didn't fit. Went with the Dialogue first, mainly because I wasn't interested in the bright yellow lacing on the Ruler. Vanity, but it worked out nicely.

STOKED that you have boots that you are pleased with!

FWIW my suggestion was the Burton Ruler in size 7.5 (not the Salomon wide in 8). I mention this only because others will read these posts and we like to give the absolute best advice we can.

Again, very stoked that you have been able to downsize to closer to your Mondo measurement. This will no doubt lead to a greatly improved experience.

Yeah sorry didn't mean to imply you suggested the Salomon, just the wide in general. After re-measuring about 10 times I think I'm closer to 26 cm than the 25.5.

Trust me, anyone looking for boot advice will be directed right to you! (that may be good or bad, actually)
