I guess there is not much reviews out there about an insole. But I find this worthy for a review and some pictures because this is a L-E-A-T-H-E-R insole. :D
This is a leather insole from TACCO, a company in Germany that manufactures insoles. I've been looking for a pair of insole for my Red Wing Beckman Boots because it is 1/2 size bigger than my usual size (refer to my earlier posts on why I did that). I need an insole for it because there isn't any for the boot in the first place. I feel that although the boot are very comfortable, I think some additional shock absorbing factor will be even better.
I tried all sorts of insoles namely LP insoles, Scholls and those generic insoles from Pharmacy stores, but none provide me with the sort of comfort that I'm looking for.
Here are some before and after wearing (for 1 day) pics:
I passed by the store and bought size 43 because they don't have size 44 and the next bigger size is size 45. As I didn't have my boots with me, I guess I need the size 43 one for my RW GT. As expected, it is a lil small for it, about a gap of 2-3mm around the edges. It may not seem to be much but you can feel the gap when walking as the foot pressed down on the boots. So after a day of wearing, I went to get the size 45 instead. And this time round, I brought my shoes along to test for fitting on the spot. Size 45 is an exact fit and hence, now i got a pair of size 43 and size 45 insole. Guess I could use the size 43 on my Clarks DB since the DB is a lil smaller than my RW GT.
All in all, this is a good insole to invest it. Good comfort and build quality. Bought mine for SGD$28 a pair at Mister Minit.
