My bad review for Toasty Feet insoles
 
I know I'm gonna get flamed because they have a lot of happy customers out there.

I'm a mild pronator. Their standard version is plenty warm but has no arch support. Their arch support version is a joke. After a couple of days straight without a good arch support the ligaments in my feet begin to ache.

Also, the fabric laminated to the top causes my socks to bunch up beneath my feet. This is especially true when I'm going out of my way to maximize warmth by leaving my socks bit loose and then not lacing my shoes up as tight as I could.

I'm going back to my Superfeet Wintergreens and Redhots. They're not as warm but they're ubercomfortable IMHO.

I just got my first pair of Superfeet Redhots and can't wait to try them. They appear to be a hair thicker than the Wintergreens were and with an extra layer of less dense foam at the bottom and foil beneath that. They may well be every bit as warm as the Toasty Feets but with something better than a ridiculous lump of rubber for an arch support. I sure hope they are since they were quite pricey.

I think Polar Wrap was listening. I just picked up a new pair. They have adjustable arch support via a velcro pad.
