Ok so you might ask hows this bowhunting related. Well its for those who walk miles into the woods with all their gear weighing them down, chasing birds, elk, whitetail...ect. So yes, this is IMHO RELATED.
So A while back I was in the redwing store to get some laces, and a new insole. My redwing 2235's are about 2 years old, and was in need of replacing the factory insoles. I went in for the "powerstep" which were around 35 dollars. I noticed they had the "heat moldable" kind for 50 bucks...at first I thought whew...thats high! 50 bucks for some insole...?!!! well the guy there talked to me, and apparently there is a foot doctor who would send all those he seen to get a pair. So being my uncles a foot doc, I called him up and asked...he said yeah there very good.
So I bought them. total was something just shy of 54 bucks after taxes.
so I got home, pre heated my oven to 200F just like I was told, put the insoles on a cookie sheet for 3 min. Took them out and put them in my boots. I immediately put my boots on, laced up as normal, and stood in them trying my best to disperse my weight naturally and evenly for 2 minutes.
After 2 min I walked around and WOW!!! what a HUGE difference! Almost instant gratification! it was like walking on a cloud!
So after that I took my boots off to let them cool back down, and the next day had to do a 11 1/2 hour shift at work on a concrete floor. NO PAIN! no throbbing, no sore feet, not even once did my feet distract me from my job...
So over the last week I have wore them and feel I can now give a decent review of how well they are working. I have flat feet, Im fat, and have a bad knee. Ive wore every Dr. scholls insole made and NEVER have my feet felt this good.
I got to reading online, apparent they have gotten RAVE reviews. see for yourself!
this is for the same kind I bought.
this is basically the same thing, but a different brand. IMHO if the military recomends them there good to go!
So I just wanted to share this with yall, as I know some of you guys/gals can walk MILES in mountains and other terrain chasing game loaded to the gills with gear. Figure this could help somebody! Not only would they be perfect for hunting, but for work too!
