What a transformation!,
This review is from: Spenco Ironman Performance Gel Insoles (Sports Apparel)
I love hiking, but have found that no matter what socks or boots I wear and how much I moisturise my feet first, after a few miles I get hot. By the time its got to the 5 mile point I used to need to take my boots off and air my feet a bit. They got so hot they would swell too. But no longer.
I am amazed and very impressed.
I bought a pair of Ironman performance gel insoles a couple of days ago and took them out for a test walk this morning, wearing good quality, familiar socks but without moisturising my feet. I covered over 8 miles of mixed terrain and altitude without my feet feeling either tired or hot or even warm! On getting back to the start I was amazed how cool they were, with no sign of either redness or swelling.
The blurb on the box says they provide maximum cushioning via triple density gel. There is certainly a very thick layer for the heel, and I would have liked so see it thicker for the ball of the foot (where I feel it most) but that was before I tried them. The arch is much more supportive than any insole I've tried before, but once you get used to it, which doesn't take long at all, it's great as you can feel it moulding to your foot.
Another thing I liked is the range of sizes and the fact that Men's and Wonen's insoles are different.
