Without having researched podiatry, I'm going to make a comment based on observation.

I have one slight problem with insoles that take the shape of your feet- your feet are shaped bad due to bad genetics. I know we like to think of ourselves as beautiful and unique snowflakes, but if that was the case, no one would have foot pain or any other pains. Our varying shapes and sizes would never matter. The fact is though, that sometimes we're just defective.

I noticed that my foot is much more comfortable when I turn out my shins and force a decent arch in my foot. An insole that takes the shape of your foot is doing nothing but reinforcing a bad shape. It's better than letting your foot go even flatter, sure. My custom orthotics for my shoe don't even really force the arch I know I need.

Wether it's a custom orthotic or one of these dynamic solutions, I think any orthotic worth it's weight should force a particular shape to your foot, and then be adjusted from there. That's why I could see the aline technology working so well, alongside some of the memory foam shaping tech.

You guys gotta try the alines to see what I mean. But that's my 5 bucks (thought it was worth more than 2 cents).

A good custom orthotic will align your joints in the appropriate fashion first, and custom fit for comfort's sake second.

I personally haven't really found insoles to matter that much, at least for my feet.

Still, certain stock insoles are better than others, and I've used Superfeet in one pair of my boots which provided a slight bit more 'height' in my heel and kept my toes from jamming into the front of the boot.

The ones in the current line of 32 boots seem to be pretty good, although they're a pain to take in and out. Before that, I was rocking the 32 Lashed when the liners had no footbeds, and found the fully heat moldable liner to be fantastic.

The Alines i'm using make a world of difference. You mostly likely have completely normal feet.
