They're a pretty good concept but they didn't quite work for my arch, just not high enough. Plus they were quite wide and interfered with the shape of the liner.

I ditched mine after a few days on the slopes and got customs. Only a little extra cash and the difference is night and day. The customs not only support my arch properly but the forefoot shape is perfectly moulded too. And they are a perfect fit in the liner because they guy tailored them to it.

When you look at the shape of the customs and the shape of the game changers, they are not even close. Which tells you something. Probably better than stock though and might work fine for a different foot shape.

I have very flat feet, and am an over pronator. For most regular shoes, I use Blue superfeets, and finally ended up getting custom orthotics made for my cycling shoes. The Shred soles, while much better than most stock sock liners, didn't have enough structure under the arch and didn't work well for me. Super feets have hard plastic to maintain the shape of their arch, and my custom orthotics are molded plastic. SOLE's also have harder, less flexible material in the arch but it wasn't high enough for me.

A quick test you can do is to wet your feet and then walk on a cement floor. Look back at the wet imprint your feet have left.
If your imprint looks like the far right, than I'd suggest not going with shredsoles.

Great guy, neat company though.

i switched to shredsoles from aline for the past two months and ilike them much better. i do have normal feet so i guess that helps. hope you can find one that fits you well, either get them custom fitted from a foot doc or boot fitter or buy one online and hope for the best.
