I've got the greenones in my new boots. Last season, my first trip out/last trip of the season with the new boots the inside of my arches (navicular?) cramped/burned. Eliminating the pain was what prompted me to buy new boots, but it had never been that bad.
I went in a few weeks ago to get the boots heat formed (the "tech" that sold them to me forgot this step) and we realized that the superfeet were not even trimmed to match the stock insoles! After neatening them up, and the heat forming, the boots felt awsome in the shop.
Apperantly, my arches are falling, and I suffer from slight pronation. I'm a little curious as to why the green insoles were recomended to me. I'll be heading out to make my first runs of the season & to decide if I want the shells punched. Any other ideas for the pain?
I have heard that you should have the same type of insole in your everyday footwear as your ski boots, that way your feet have the same support at all times, and they won't be "shocked" when you put your ski boots on.
