Told you it was good exercise.

As far as your feet, I get foot pain the first couple of times riding. I think the muscles in your feet get used in ways they aren't used to, just like calves and the rest. For me it goes away after a time or two. YMMV.

Yeah, I wondered if it wasn't just cuz I'm not used to the particular motions and muscles used. Maybe I'll play around a few more times before I change anything.

Thanks!

I was going to buy superfeet, and the guy at the shop was showing them compared to my stock 32 insoles, couldn't tell the difference. He told me to save my money. I did, was happy.

Now fast forward, got me some Remind Medics about 3 weeks ago and they are awesome, will be riding on them in about 2 weeks. I work on my feet and they have really helped alot, correct my pronation, support underneath, etc.

There is a significant difference in the quality between these insoles and superfeet, but there is not a significant price difference.

I've only ever tried the Superfeet so I can't compare them to any other.

Which ones did you look @? The green ones I had, had a solid plastic heel that went to just before the ball of your foot.
The whole arch was supported by rigid plastic underneath the foam.

I've never pulled out the insole on a 32 boot, but they don't have a hard plastic in them do they?

If they do, then ya they must be pretty good?

well 32 has different insoles depending on the level of boot. They didn't look bad compared to superfeet, but compared to these reminds they look like cardboard heeh. They got some heel gel n stuff. Maybe I didn't see the green, anywho....i dunno, browzing Reminds website...they sell themselves to me...happy with em.

I was real hesitant to ever pull the trigger on insoles cuz I thought $30-60 would be a waste if I didn't get full customs.

Its like the whole bluebird crew, the J-hole vibe, I dunno I'm drinkin' the kool-aid.

Just pulled the insert out of my Salomon's. They retail for $275 and the insole looks pretty serious. Has plastic arch support, heel cup with form all the way through and contour and impact support under the ball too. They should be good to go. I think I just wasn't used to using my feet like that.
