Default Gel insoles.....

Ya'll know, the ones at the trade shows that they sit you down and let ya try to see if ya like them, supposedly 30X better than drug store el'cheapos. Well, I bit at the Turkeyrama weekend before last. Wore them for 5 days, had them on when I walked off the 85ac worth of fires last Thurs. Friday the arches of my feet were a bit sore, Sat I could hardly walk at all. Took them out and by this morning my feet were almost back right. Walked off 6 ac worth of fires this morning and then a 44ac one this afternoon with the stock insoles, not one problem. I got the gel ones back in the bag and waiting for the buckarama, gonna take them up there, show my arse, then tell them where to stick them. So be forewarned, they ain't worth a chit and a huge waste of money, don't make the same mistake I did.

Can't wait 'til Aug when I get to see them again. It ain't gonna be pretty, probably be the first person to get tossed from the show.

Flattop, the stock soles aren't too bad in my boots now, both my GA Boots and Cabelas Outfitters, just thought I could improve on what I had, guess not.

I'm spreading the word, good sales pitch, and make since that they would be the best thing since sliced bread for the feet, but damn, they crippled me for 2 days and they're basically new.

I've gotten to where I just ignore all the people who holler at me to stop when I walk by their booth. If I wanted boot inserts or home gutters then I would stop and ask you about them!

Probably something along the lines of "Get these damn cuffs off me, he didn't finish eating that last insole.".

Nick I have bad feet and wear the ones from the drug stores, Acadamy sports or Bass pro. The balls of my feet give me troubles so I get the ones with the forward padding. I tried those expensive $300.00 custom fit inserts and believe that is part of what caused my knee troubles.
