I have a pair of "formthotics" in my gillies, the doc put these bright blue
orthotics in the microwave (on high for 2 min or until tender) then put them in
my gillies, I then quickly put on the shoes and stood for 2 minutes until they
had molded to the contour of my foot.

They are a full length orthotic, which does mean when you point your toe the
end of your gillie looks like a pixie's slipper, but it's better than having
sore feet. (plus it gives you an excuse for turned up toes!)

I've had them in for a year now with no trouble, but I have heard of them
breaking, which is only to be expected given the flexing we do to our feet.

Cheers
