Jaiden - Stock insoles are useless to me. I need the support of Superfeet. But if you can actually use these things in your boots then you could potentially save the 34gm/1.2oz weight of the insoles. Just punch the 3 holes (or melt them with a hot nail as I do) in your insole, insert the melted pointy tip of the 8gm/.3oz/pr. cordlace through the holes and fix with a knot (or to save time untying 6 knots in the morning, fix the end of the cord on the underside with safety pins. This would also allow for quick cordlace length adjustments to allow for foot swelling, or adding Injinji socks in the evening.) I'll bet either technique will work. This suggests: could I do the same with my Superfeet and have a lighter, more puncture resistant camp thong??
Steve - I see your point. However, almost all of the moisture is in the sock and boot, not the insole. I think that wearing the insole in camp will not slow the drying of the system. BTW - cool ankle tat. You've inspired me to start a muti-use gear thread on the subject.
Roger - Correct. These will not protect you from mud, allow you to sprint or climb 5.10b. They're just camp thongs that allow you to relax, dry feet, boots and socks while providing modest abrasion and puncture resistance. They also help to keep feet clean after washing which is generally nice and when nursing open wounds/blisters on the feet quite important.
