These canted insoles are a dream come true!
Shred Soles are a dream come true especially if you suffer from knee pain. Snowboarding can be hard on your knees, even more so if you have a wider stance. The way the insoles are designed to be tapered/canted inward have been a blessing for my knees. They are very similar to the high end bindings that you see on the market with the canted foot beds, but for a fraction of the price. I am such a fan of the canted design of the insoles that I also have a pair of canted foot bed bindings from Ride. There are several different brands that offer the canted foot bed binding, but Shred Soles are the only insole that I know of that are canted. I feel that the two work well together but if you can only afford one, start with the insoles. Also, If you already own a pair of canted foot bed bindings these are the perfect addition to them. They will work with any bindings but I am a huge fan of the canted bindings. I have used my Shred Soles in several different brands of boots and they work well in each boot. In my opinion, canted is way more comfortable. Your feet are the foundation to your body. Take good care of them.

|t21||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.|

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.

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.

Then bend your knees while pushes down with your toes (i.e. firing your calf muscle) that effective keeps you ankle from hinging. Sit there for a moment and focus on where you feel your weight. I think you will feel a lot of "pressure" in the middle of your foot where you arch is. Now imagine holding this position for hours of snowboarding... with the added G forces of snowboarding.
Muscle you need to stretch - calf (gastroc, soleus), shin (anterior tibalis), peroneus (kind of on the side) and flexor/extensor digitorum (toe muscles).
Getting a golf ball and roll the bottom of your foot helps as well.

Thanks for that phone number, I am going to try these first - If they are uncomfortable, I will return them I suppose
I just called Nate and he talked to me for a bit. He offered me free shipping xD
