    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.

    Resurrecting an older thread... I'm looking for some insoles for my Lowa Tibet GTX boots. I've tried a couple of insoles that I have in different boots, but they either don't have any padding like the stock insole, or they are too thick and push my heel up too high causing blisters. I'm looking at the Synergy insoles and am interested, but I was just curious on the thickness of them. Are they about the same as a stock insole, maybe a little thicker? I can't have them two or three times as thick, that is for sure. Second, is the custom fit worth it? It is an extra $25 which puts these insoles at almost $80. I can spend 80 dollars a lot of ways and just want to make sure I'm going to be happy with these.
    Now therefore, please take your weapons, your quiver and your bow, and go out to the field and hunt game for me.

    td- When I compare the Synergy footbed to the stock insole of my Danner Pronghorns or Hanwag Alaskans, they are just slightly thicker. I thought they fit to perfection in my Pronghorns, but have no experience with Lowa boots.
    Don't waste your money on the custom fit, unless you flat out don't have the ability to take out the stock insole, and trim the new one to match.
    My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.

    tdcour I have the same boot and use the Senergy footbeds. They are not that much thicker than the original insoles. I have no complaints about the Senergy's. Personally they are a little pricy but worth the dollars.

    Hi guys- new to the forums, but wanted to share on this topic. I've had really good luck with these from Cabela's. I now replace my running shoe insoles with these as well as my hiking and hunting boots.

    The insoles that came in my Scarpa backpacking boots are excellent, when they are done I'm going to order another set from Scarpa or whoever supplies them. Within a very short time they form fit to your foot and they are extremely comfortable, I've never had a blister ever in these boots.

    Do you take out the factory insole from the boot before you put in the aftermarket ones or do you put the new insole on top?
    Seems like a new insole would make the boot a very tight fit. And, the factory insoles are usually glued down so tight they would be very tough to remove without damaging the boot. Just wondering................

    I've never had any that were glued down in my boots. I always slip the old ones out and new ones in.

    You can use the factory insoles for early season scouting when you have thinner socks. Helps to snug up the boots. Throw them out when you head out in Novemebr with heavier socks.

    I've been looking at the Under Armour Browtine boot for next year. Seems to me the factory insoles would be a real pain to get out.
    Any experience with those boots? Maybe it could be done. The insoles looked permanent to me.
