Will any of the aforementioned insoles customize the location of the arch support fore or aft? The Gamechangers from Footprint seem like they might be what I'm looking for, but I can't tell. I'll probably just shoot them an email and ask, but I'm also interested in real world experience.

the orthotics i have now i had to get 2 sizes bigger so that the arch was in the right spot and then cut them

jojotherider I'm 9.5-10 depending on the shoe. Which is also annoying since the orthotic insole won't fit both sizes so I end up with two.

I was watching one of the game changer videos and the guy was injecting something into the sole. Someone in this thread mentioned it and it caught my attention.

Re-remind insoles

Check skateboard shops, I forgot where I found mine. But usually I had the opposite problem they were too big! What size you looking for incase I find that website...I think volcano insoles actually hear mold to your feet I could be wrong, look up the red ones. I forgot the name, but I remember they were red and about 50$

First time in my life I've had literally 0 foot discomfort in new boots, even on the first day or using them. They also came with little pads that you can use to customize the foot, ie raise or lower the front or rear of the sole to create a perfect fit in your boot.
these? Footprint Insole Technology

edit: oh now i found them. i'm definitely going to get a pair of those at least for my regular shoes thanks

MeanJoe I'm starting my 3rd season on Sidas custom insoles. My local shop has the fitting system to take the mold of your footbed and form the insole. They're easily the best decision I've ever made related to my boots and comfort all-day.

mikeinaus I have a normal arch but a oddly shaped foot. Skinny in the heel and really wide in the front. I've tried superfeet, sole and footprint insoles.

Superfeet: were ok, never had foot pain but I'd get uncomfortable standing on them all day, they also started to smell pretty bad after a while.

Soles: Very comfortable, never had foot paint, also have anti-microbial materials and dont stink after excessive use. I use these in my work boots 40-70 hours a week and they are great.
