    I found that my feet were getting sore after being on the boat for a full day. Much as I like my Xtra Tuff boots, they don't have squat for insole support. So, I bit the bullet and stepped on one of those Dr. Scholl's Custom Fit machines in the local Walmart. $49 for the recommended insole. Wow! What a difference! Feet don't get tired and sore after a day of fishing anymore. YMMV... I have no affiliation with Walmart or Dr. Scholls, I just like comfortable feet!

    Swapping those insoles makes a world of difference.

    Powerstep and Superfeet are good, but if they don't work then look into a custom pair fabricated by a podiatrist.

    Is it hard to get your boots on with the superfeet inserts? I mean if your boots fit now will the thickness of the inserts effect the fit?

    Depends on the insert..some are higher than others. you have to take out the original inserts and see as everyone's feet are different. You can always buy several and try on...then keep the best and return the rest.

    I have used orange superfeet in my xtra tufs for the past 5 or 6 years. I use blue ones in my hiking shoes. Oh by the way, the same orange superfeet for all those years. I've had the blue ones for forever, too. It makes a huge difference for me.

    I use the Dr. Scholls inserts on top of the factory insoles, they are not full-length. Does not make my boots feel tight. I am using them in my court shoes for Pickleball too, without removing the stock insoles. Big improvement for me.

    Yup. I don't step into a pair of work boots or deck boots with out first dropping some Dr. Scholls in first. Night and day...

    Abeo sport inserts from The Walking Co. Put them in my boots or deck shoes for all day use.

    Another vote for green Superfeet. The problem with the foam supports is that they will quickly begin to collapse. Superfeet arch support is hard plastic which won't collapse...

    The best way to find the insole for your particular needs is to go to a top end running shoe store like Fleet Feet , where you can try on several different models. Always go at the end of the day when your feet are tired, everything feels good st 10 AM. Everyone responds differently to each device, the cliche I use in my practice is “ if a warm hamburger patty feels good in your shoe , then it’s a good support, in other words try different things and find what works for you. On a side , take the original insoles out, when you put in the new ones, will prevent nerve irritation from a tight boot.
