Out with the old, in with the new.
I've got problem feet, they have never been very happy.
I've tried lots of different inserts and insoles, and have yet to find anything that has provided much reprieve from my discomfort.
The last ones I tried were these doc scholls extreme-action-gel-pad-ultra-comfort-edition, or something like that. They sucked, for me.
Too squishy, with forced arch support that put undue pressure on the ball of my foot. Every step felt like there was a layer of jello between me and the ground, and not in a good way.
I found that my foot moved inside my boot too much, and created hot-spots (the starts of blisters) very quickly. Especially if I was hiking, or doing anything more than just wearing my boots.
So I'm giving this a go.
Hand cut, full grain leather insoles.
I'll wear them like this for a day or two, moistening the surface that contacts my foot, which will allow my foot to naturally carve and form it's own, perfectly shaped footprint.
This will show where the pressure is highest, and where more pressure might be necessary.
In a few days I will cut a second layer, and by thinning some spots, and leaving others full width, I will end up with some mighty comfortable boots.
The leather, as always, is scrap leather from local, high quality boot makers.
The shoes that this leather was used to make, probably cost well over quintuple the cost of the boots that it's now going inside.
That's why I've got these lovely @timberland
Because I won't be able to afford anything from @vibergboot for a good long while.
But that's okay, because these timbs are going on 2 years of near daily abuse, and with regular cleaning and periodic application of my proprietary boot goop, these bad boys look better than the the day I opened the box.
Soon, to the woods. •
