I have a new pair of meindl Alaska hunters and have heard the insoles suck in them, What are the insoles you all use in your boots?

Lathrop and Sons Synergy.

I used to buy "support" style insoles because my feet were sore and tired after hard days. Once the Lathrops changed my thinking, and got me in the right boot to support my foot, I realized the insoles were for cushioning, and friction prevention, not changing the fit. The Synergy's make a boot that fits more comfortable during hard use.

Like anything that deals with feet though, opinions will vary widely.

Kenetrek has some new insoles out this year, Kenetrek Supportive Insoles (http://www.lintonoutdoors.com/kenetrek-supportive-insoles/). I have logged approx 150 miles worth of trail running miles while getting ready for the upcoming season. They are lightweight and comfortable. They come stock with a bit of an arch built in. I am mildly flat footed but they are perfectly formed to my feet now. I tried the synergy foot beds very comfy but they seemed heavy, I sold them with my boots so I didnt get to try them on any extended trips.

I was just looking into foot beds and this post pops up. For the guys that have the Synergy beds, have you tried something else and then switched to the Synergy, or did you go straight to the synergy based off a recommendation? I called Lathrop and discussed the footbeds with them, but the guy didn't seem real confident with some of the questions I had in differences between these and other types of insoles.

I got a pair of medium arch insoles. The person that was helping me convinced me the best place to start was to get the full support on my feet. I run a very lightweight boot that is not extremely stiff. I have trained myself to turn my feet over quickly when I walk and avoid "rolling" over on the balls of my feet. I find it to be very helpful when I get a little weight on to put my feet straight down and pick them straight up. I thought about getting the cynergy footbeds to go along with a thinner merino sock during warmer weather hunts. I don't want to be forced to run the thicker socks to keep my feet from moving around.
