The insoles are made from a flexible urethane or something, not a closed cell foam like most are. It wont pack down at all.

Buy the green Superfeet, then when your boots are nice & form fitted, put the stock insoles back in them.

Superfeet are awesome.

I think I'm going to stick with my insoles, because as ETM said, the other brands just can't compete with what's in my boot.

Superfeet lick stale donkey balls compared to Sole footbeds.

OP: anything aftermarket is miles better than really pretty much any stock insole.

...and if your feet are numb in them laced up, unlaced, etc. then you bought boots too small.

Superfeet are crap and dont look any better than the 32 stock insoles, which are very nice as a rule for stock insoles.

I was in the shop buying some and the sales guy was like...these insoles are as good as any of the superfeet...why are you buying them..and i was like...cuz the internet sed so...

Happy with the stock but I want to get some Remind insoles.

The TMs I see you are wearing only have a basic insole compared to the focus, the ones on the focus are the big daddies.

Yea I wear a pair of Lashed and Tm-twos alternately, I know they have burlier stuff but even the not-burlier stands up to superfeet..I'm talking about getting something with cushioning like the Reminds or similar.

I haven't tried Sole footbeds, so Superfeet could possibly lick stale donkey balls compared to them.

But compared to the footbed I replaced in my 2010 Burton Rulers, I couldn't even detect the slightest after taste of rancid donkey ball sweat.

My Rulers ended up being to small on one foot after one day, I got purple toe.
The store wouldn't let me exchange then for a dif pair, after arguing for a while they just gave them to me.

Even though the Superfeet were way thicker than the stock Burton ones, which I couldn't see solving my problem. The plastic arch prevented my foot from elongating when I tied my boot. Amazingly it did work, no more purple toe.
