Replacement insoles

Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

For my current cycling shoes (one road and one MTB pair), i use either insoles from some old sneakers or some Dr. Scholl's memory foam insoles. The stock insoles usually suck.

Specialized make their Body Geometry insole with different arches and wedges. The came in my S-Works Boas and I liked them so much I bought a pair for each of my MTB shoes as well. They're basically $50 a pair.

I have terribly high arches so I use these amazing insoles called "powersteps" (i think). Anyway they served me well I switched them around in all my shoes. They cured a foot injury from running in a matter of weeks.

I use the Specialized BG insoles for high arches, because my custom orthotics are too thick for my cycling shoes.

My current insoles for my Sidi's are ones I bought at Walmart for about $10 max. Much better than the stock insoles.

I currently wear the Specialized BG Pro shoe. I assume all Specialized insoles are the same?

There are 3 kinds. The stock insole is the same as their red one for "flat" feet. Then there's blue (++) for medium arches, and green (+++) for high arches. They aren't cheap.

Conformable's custom insoles. Ask a local coach or a fit center if they do these. They're incredible.
