I've heard that superfeet makes good insoles with good support. Just keep in mind that the green is for extremely high arches, blue is for you're average arch (most likely you), and black is for mostly flat footed people. They seem to exaggerate the sizing in their info, so just figured I should put that out there.

If you're unsure of what type of arches you have, here is a test runners do to determine how high of arches they have. Take This Simple Test To Learn If You Have High or Low Arches | Runner's World

Sole Softec Response Foot Beds - Outside Outfitters

Sole is what I use. Love them. You need to go with your boots to the store and try different ones

I have superfeet insoles and they work great. However, I hadn't read about Remind insoles when I purchased them. I think the threads you're talking about are in reference to a number of forum members that highly recommend Remind. Snowklinger wrote a great review after a year in a pair of remind medics. You can read the review here: http://www.snowboardingforum.com/gen...c-insoles.html

Superfeet also has their Custom Kork insoles also, where they are also heat moldable.

every foot is different, you have to be your own bootfiiter sometimes

personally, i took the blue superfeet, cut off everything but the plastic heel, and ride with them below the liners and with no extra insole

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.

Footprint gamechangers: Just started using these in my new snowboard boots and I'm amazed. They are the closest you can get to a custom insole off the shelf. I had to inject water into the botttom of the sole which activates a gell and causes them to swell up. I then put them on for 30min and they made a perfect match to my foots shape when the gel hardened. They're also made with a super high energy absorbent material and are great for snowboarding. 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.

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.
