The best insoles
on 13 August 2013
I have had these a few times many years ago - I bought for comfort this time in my new shoes more than anything.
I remember last time, about 6 years ago, I cut them too small, so this time I cut a piece of card first - I traced the shape from the size on the odor eaters onto a piece of clear plastic that I got from one side of a strong plastic bag,, them I marked and cut the piece of card, then tried the card in my shoes to ensure a correct fit. Glad I did! My shoes are M&S Gibson, size 8, and they must be extra wide I think, nothing like the marked size on the insoles. So I cut another piece of card, slightly altered to be wider between the heel and sole, made some slight adjustments, and when I was sure of a good fit, I marked the insoles and cut one. Perfect fit! I just turned over the card for the other shoe.
I still have the work boots from 6 years ago with these insoles in them, (I wore them for about 6 months, 12 hours a day, 5 days a week, on my feet all day working in a restaurant), and they are still in very good condition. I will wear these boots again sometime, too good to throw away, but the insoles are still good in them too.
All in all,, a very good buy. Be careful not to cut off too much when fitting though - you can always cut more off to get them to fit.
