When I was in a very reputable boot fitting shop recently (who shall remain nameless), they looked at my footbeds and the following conversation ensued regarding my Instaprints:
BF: "How long have you had these?"
Me: "2 years"
BF: "Really? Who in the heck made them for you? They're awful!"
Me: "You did"
Me: "Well, not you...but your shop. Actually it was ******, sitting over there." (I point to ******* who looks at me funny)
After a few trips to the back and a lot of whispering between BF and the shop manager, my Instaprints were recast and now that they actually support my foot and my arch, a lot of the other issues I've been dealing with are gone.
So I guess the moral of the story is it's more about the person making the footbeds than the actual beds themselves. For the record, I really like ******** but it does make me extra cautious with trusting the bootfitter, since I truly believed I was dealing with one of the best in the country and put a lot of faith (and money) behind that belief on numerous occasions.
