    Hi Caminoists, this my question is (mainly) for Merrell Moab owners, but not only - what insole did you used on your camino? Have you any recommendations? Thanks!

    Hey Danvo - For my Merrell Moabs, as well as my trail running shoes, I use the Superfeet insoles. With that said, you need to know that they do come in a number of configurations depending on your feet and gait. I was lucky enough to get fitted at a running store for my Superfeet. And although they were first fitted to my running shoes, the same insoles worked fine in my Merrells. In fact, I never take them out! If you were to go with the Superfeet insoles, I hope there is a venue near you where you can try several different ones to see which fit best. Good luck and Buen Camino!

    I used Superfeet and was happy with them. I didn't try any of their competitors.

    LOVE my Merrells and used Air Plus plantar fascia orthotic insoles. Worked great.

    Campmor.com is currently having a sale on rather large Osprey packs.

    Hi Danvo

    I may be a bit late but for clarity I used the Superfett insoles (blue) in my MerrellMoabs and I love them. There different colours ranging from little arch support to greater arch support. If you can get to a shop to try them out all the better. The blue ones are kinda mid-range.

    Buen Camino

    Greg

    I checked out the Merrell Moab 2 GTX today.
    Are the insoles deemed inferior for the need to replace? Or are they getting replaced for medical reasons?
    I bought the shoes and will trial them as supplied. The shop assistant seemed to think they were good quality?

    Hi Richard

    The insoles in the moab2s are pretty good but I replaced mine with the Superfeet. It’s not that the Merrell insoles are bad just that I found the Superfeet provide great support. I find my feet don’t ache so much after a long day’s walking.

    Buen Camino

    Greg

    Hey Richard - Let me second what Greg said. I do NOT have any particular problem with my feet. However, I have found the Superfeet Insoles to give me extra support both running and hiking. As Greg indicated, I, too, think that the Merrell insoles are good, but Superfeet are better. I checked mine out and I was fitted with the yellow ones. From my experience, these particular shoes and insoles are a great combination as long as you get fitted for the insole that best fits your feet. Buen Camino!
    PS, If you haven’t already purchased them, I think you’re wise to go with the GTX model. You’ll appreciate the waterproofing when it’s need.

    Hi Richard, here in Slovakia I found Moab 1 GTX on sale (below 60€) but in home I found that there are not same insoles (Ortholite) as in my previous Moabs (don't know why) so I need to replace them with any "normal" insoles :D

    Hi Greg, thank you! It help me a lot! :) I was focused on green, but I will try blue too, if it will be possible.
