    I’m not a fan of highly-structured arch support, but I’m not opposed to some shoe structure. I personally gravitate towards low-drop, moderately cushioned shoes for backpacking.

    For carrying heavy packs, or doing long miles on dirt roads or hard trails, or wearing low-midsole-cushion shoes (like approach shoes), I do like an insole for adding cushioning.

    Here’s what I look for:

    • some heel cup structure to keep the fat pad on the heel working (natural cushion).
    • very light (low) arch support so as not to interfere with foot splay, but enough to give me a little more control when sidehilling.
    • high cushion (especially in my approach shoes).

    Insoles that have this blend of features seem rare. I recently picked up a pair of Superfeet Run Low Arch Max Cushion insoles and they seem to tick most of these boxes, and so far so good in my approach shoes (Sportiva TX4 Evo).

    What are you all using? Are there other low-arch, high cushion insoles out there?
