Just passing along my experience for general consumption. Picked up a pair of Dr. Scholls inserts at Walmart. You know the machine you stand on and it tells you what inserts you need for your shoes. Well the inserts feel fine in my walking/running shoes. So last time I hit the local hill I slip the inserts into my ski boots, Head Edge 8.5. I skied with them in for about an hour and a half. The first thing I noticed is my right foot hurt in a place it never hurt before, the next thing I noticed was they did not improve my skiing, rather they made my ability to ski worse. The foot pain eventually subsided, but I had a hard time controlling my skis, at times it felt like the skis had a mind of their own. I felt awkward and out of balance; not good. Pulled the inserts when we took our first break and voila may skiing was back to normal. I don’t think I’ll be trying that experiment again anytime soon.
