    Does anyone have any experience with putting Dr. Scholls insoles in your boots or shoes?

    Thanks for the help!

    I put insoles in mine. I recommend bringing more than one pair because switching them between shoes was a hassle since the amount of time we were given to change was pretty small.

    I used to use Dr. Scholl's Air Cushion Insoles in my low quarters primarily to keep them drier because of the corfam not breathing like leather. They worked great for that purpose. However, they weren't orthotic, only for sweat. Can't answer your question if you are talking about orthotic inserts for arch support and hate to make recomendations about something that I haven't tried or seen tried. In my old age, I now use arch supports in my hunting boots with good success but of a different brand than good old Dr. Scholl.

    Ya I am not necessarily talking about arch support, but more about comfort. I can't stand wearing dress shoes now and can't imagine that low quarters would be any better. So I thought that putting them in would make them more comfortable and not make my feet as sore. Were the air cushion ones different then the gel ones they sell now?

    That is why it is suggested that you buy them now and get used to wearing them. It is not so much to break in the shoes as to get your feet used to wearing something other than athletic shoes or sandals (I'm assuming here). :thumb:
