I'm looking to do whatever I can to minimize my usual foot sore/tired/hurt for my upcoming JMT trip. So I got a pair of Superfeet insoles to use with the Vasque Scree 2.0 shoes I got yesterday. I checked out the various models ... and tried the blue before I selected Orange. With Blue I didn't notice a real difference from the stock insoles. With Orange the difference is noticeable - I feel a nominal increase in protection from below, and a significant difference in how the foot is held in position.
I selected Orange for this reason, as well as the way it's positioned: "...ORANGE is ideal for men who run, walk, or stand for extended periods of time. Provides maximum rear foot support with a full forefoot shock pad for added comfort..."
It feels like with these installed, I can go to lighter/smaller socks (rather than my usual full-height boot socks, which would be pretty dorky in a low-cut shoe).
Any comments before I start using these and make them non-returnable? (well, technically I can return them anytime, since I bought them at REI, but don't feel good about returning something that's been used unless it's actually defective).
The Superfeet are quite expensive ($45), but worth it if they make my feet feel better, but still, it's a lot! If there's some gotcha I don't know about yet I'd rather find out now...
