The insole of the latest Finnish army combat boot is a giant leap forward from the old stuff. This is yet another step forward, with an additional cushion in the ball of the foot. "The best thing since sliced bread", as one of our employees has been heard exclaiming. Repeatedly.
Essentially a shock-absorbing, ventilated, quite thick and wide insole. Features about 3 mm thick flexible cushion heel & ball pieces and superb arch support, which forms to support all individual arch shapes. If the insoles seem too wide for your shoes, carefully reshape the buggers with a pair of scissors. The insoles, that is.
Out of the box these will fit all Finnish army footwear, and most others, too (has been tested with Norwegian M-77 combat boots, to mention one). Should fit all hiking & military footwear.
Sizes in the standard EUR / French system, with the actual millimetre length of the insole (measured from heel to the tip) in the brackets. Below is a chart of corresponding US sizes.
* This size falls in between half and full sizes of the US system and our chart indicates the larger US-size. The rounding is just 2 mm (0.08") and these have a lot of toe clearance so you'll be fine.
Factory new, made in Finland by Jalas.
I do not exaggerate in the slightest when I say that these insoles revolutionized hiking for me. I've put quite a few kilometres behind me on foot, and I've always suffered from the same problem: the soles of my feet eventually go numb, then sore, after which things slowly slide over into agonizing.
This has traditionally been the limiting factor for how far I can push myself in one go, but no more! Thanks to the double shock absorbtion on these insoles, walking with them is like treading on a thin sheet of soft foam. This makes walking extraordinarily comfortable and sustainable; whereas I would usually feel the first symptoms of my feet going numb after about 10 km of marching, it took 30 km for things to get even slightly uncomfortable when using these insoles. This is a truly remarkable piece of kit that I recommend at the fullest to anyone who spends a lot of time on their feet, be it standing or walking.
