Inner soles for clipless shoes

Postby AP81 » Thu Nov 22, 2012 10:20 pm

Can anyone recommend some innersoles that can comfortably fit in some clipless shoes? I've got pretty flat feet that like to pronate during the pedal stroke.

Try G8 mate.
I run them in my Bonts.
Approximately $110 but excellent.

Mark can you adjust them to suit really high arches?? Do committed cycles have them in stock to have a look??

Yeah they can be fully adjusted for high arches (comes with 3 different arch supports)
Call Brad (AT) Committed and I think he does have them in stock.
RRP is about $100 I think, but I got mine for free lol

I replaced the original insoles in my Specialized shoes with ones from the nearest Chemist Warehouse, $40-50 i think and they were a big improvement.

I have the highest of the shelf ones you can get so my podiatrist told me, they are still too low :(

I have some orthopedic recommended insoles, but they are far too thick, making the shoe too tight. That is my issue with most innersoles I have come across so far. Too bulky.

I'll take a look at the G8's this weekend.

I recently got prescribed these as part of a bike fitting, and ended up with the green ones. They've been OK so far. I rode up Mt Baw Baw with them yesterday, so if my feet can handle them under those conditions, I think my feet and the footbeds will get along just fine! :P

I went in there last week and they have a set on order for me. Mark was the guinea pig for the rest of us :)
I've got high arches as well, got orthotics as well

These offer little support if you have arch issues. The green ones are the high ones and are next to useless for myself and most others with high arches.
