|Sidi Genius 3 problem||WiseGuy|
Aug 22, 2002 10:18 AM
|I have a pair of Sidi Genius 3's that has a factory insole that creeps toward the heal of the shoe in about 5 miles. This causes a sort of "Hang 10" affect and becomes very uncomfortable on the bottom of my toes. Has anyone else had this problem and how did you solve it? I like to be able to take the insoles out when they get wet so glueing seems out of the question. I also thought about something like velcro, but thought that might create yet another comfort problem?
Your thoughts please!!!

|Have you given any thought to generic shoe insoles? There are some pretty good insoles out there for running shoes and other types of athletic shoes.
Just a thought...

|...back in 1994, they did not come with a factory insole. So, I bought a pair of Dr. Scholl's insoles and they worked beautifully. You may want to try that solution. Last year, I ordered a pair of the Sidi Genius 3's and I have not had the problem you mention.|

|Sounds as if they're too loose to begin with. I like the idea of replacing them with a generic insole, maybe something thicker than the originals.

|solved it with Superfeet insoles. Took up that little bit of room on my ever so narrow foot. Got great stiffness with the insoles and a good fit.

|I used two sided carpet tape for a while, then tossed the insoles and replaced them with Dr. Scholl's 'running shoe' type replacement insoles .., don't recall what they're called. I've used them since, ~#12/pr I think.|

|They are stiffer than the stock footbeds, and have a little more arch/cushion. They have worked well for me in my Sidi Dominator mtn shoes. I don't use them in my road shoes, since I prefer less padding for road riding. They run around $25/pair. Performance has them...
