I'm looking for insight and opinions on replacement insoles for a pair of Red Wing Motorcycle boots (Model 970 10" Pull-On).
I've used the boots daily for many years and have worn out more than a few sets of insoles. The problem that I have is that I haven't really found a replacement that I really like. I've identified several attributes that don't work well for me, but nothing that truly stands out as a winner.
Anyway, I'm hoping that some of you can offer additional thoughts, insight and opinions before I start my search for the next pair.
Some of the things that I've learned . . .
1) Most of the gel/foam replacements conduct temperature really well. It's not bad in the summer, but can be a real pain in the winter in Minnesota. Your feet stay cold most of the day.
2) Work boot type insoles generally have a fabric covering that helps with the cold temperatures, but they generally are not the most comfortable.
3) The insoles with hard plastic sleeves to "help align your foot" do not work for me as I end up with sore feet from walking on the edges of the sleeve.
