Re: [pct-l] One more on Super Feet

:I have not had good experience with SuperFeet for long distance hiking.
:As soon as I switched back to Spenco Hiker my feet were happy again.
:Most thru hikers I encountered on the PCT in 96 and CDT in 98
:use Sorbathane Ultrasole.

Clearly, the exact choice of insole / orthotic depends on the foot involved,
however, the real point that seems to be being made by everyone is that
using the right insole can have an enormous effect and even make the
difference between finishing your hike or not. Foot pain and damage (and
also effects on ankles, knees, hips, back) seems to be a leading cause of
people having to leave the trail. Hikers, take care of your feet!  :-)
