You tell me. Why do $150 boots come with cardboard insoles? Maybe because then the price would rise dramaticly. The Half Dome hike will take you about 11 hours to do.That’s along time to be pounding the granite.
I suggest you toss the factory insoles and get good insoles. What kind does Uncle Ricky use? CADENCE. Watch my YouTube endorsement. You’re not going to find them in stores – you have to order them. But they advertise on my website and offer a 10% discount if you mention Mr Half Dome as the promo code.
I have a pair – they gave me an eval pair and I love them. Pillow cushion and a stable ride – not the stiff ones or the floppy ones you see on the racks.
Here’s a newsletter they put out.
