    Have any of you found shoe inserts near big enough? The insole of my boots are getting a little flat, so Id like to add some kind of arch support, but, no one makes anything for 15EEEE's..............they only go up to size 12 or maybe 13 :rolleyes: , and dont touch the sides of the boot :eek1: (I stuck in an Odor Eater to see the size)

    Anyone have a lead on where to get sasquatch insoles?

    custom orthotics

    they push you feet in foam or plaster and make it to fit and give you some good arch suport ( make sure to ask for a lot of arch suportit is better )

    they will run up to 300 bucks, but are worth it. your ciropractor can do it or some places Only do orthotics.

    it is the only thing i am ever found, my 15EEEE brother

    yeah but there not just some insert that is flat and crappy, they are comformed to your feet and will help with fatiuge and if you have problems with you back hips knee or feet because of the way you walk they can reshape your feet to fix it.


    you can also get them cheaper too like a 100 bucks low end depending on what they have to make

    well, whatever the size of an odor eater is, I think its 12, I can slide it about an inch and a half side to side, and with the heel all the way back, my toes are hanging off the other end.

    Like, really hanging off, the ball of my foot is sitting on the end of the insert.

    yeah i do the custom orthotics in my office and I don't know if I could fit a foot that big in my casting foam! I should call foot levelers and see if they have a larger size! lol

    Huh, I wear the same size shoe. I found a place on the web that had inserts for 15eeee. I do not remember them being crazy expensive, maybe $50. I will try to find it again.

    if you found a place on the web, then they weren't the custom orthotics which if you are going to get orthotics is the only way to go. custom's are crazy expensive but last generally for several years.
