Use the stock insoles. I had heat moldable insoles at first but I got a much better fit with the stock ones. It allows your heel to sit low and secure into the heel pocket. After molding the shoes the bottom contours my feet and adds support just like the insoles before.
After finding the fit better I asked Bont and they confirmed that the stock thin insoles is better than orthotics. Unless you have exceptionally different feet with special needs then use the stock thin insole.
I tried the Bont insoles first and yes it did help a good deal with the toe, there was a bit of "jam" still. Also, when I walked around with the thin Bont insoles my arch's felt very loose and poor.
I have tried thin company brand insoles in the past and the same issues ALWAYS
happen, my arch's get sore and my feet track poorly, my knee's dip in when pedaling because of the arch collapse. Since I started using eSoles a couple month's ago my foot comfort has gone up a huge amount, no more arch problems and my knee's track significantly better.
Using the super thin company insoles will not in any way provide the amount of support the eSoles will. Just look at the company brand one's compared to a pair of eSoles with a higher lvl of support *blue arch, thats what I use*. There is NO
comparison in terms of arch height and support.
Also, how exactly does the thin insole mold up into your arch to prevent it from collapsing? I don't see physically how it would be possible to mold the Bont shoe and insole UPWARD
into your arch to keep it from falling during the pedaling cycling especially since you mold them in a static position.
Listen, I know what the company said however, logically that does not make sense for the reasons stated above.To ph
I pretty much ignored the Bont sizing wizard because just like you it told me 41 however I wore 42 in Specialized and 42.5 in Giro Factor's. I went with what I usually defer to which is size 42. Basically the same thing you described happened to me when I first got my Factors, 42 fit with the stock insoles but 42.5 was needed for eSoles. I think the Bont's are going to be like Giro in fit where I will have to go up a half size to get the eSoles to fit comfortably.
Anyhow, it looks like we may have the very similar sized feet. Mine are also quite low volume but with a medium arch that tends to collapse hence the blue arch support for my left foot and black for my right feeling quite good.
I personally would recommend sticking with the eSoles if they work for you because although you may not sit as deep in the heel, the foot as a whole will be better supported and controlled thanks to the arch.
