Remind Insoles Product Review on The Angry Snowboarder

28 May

In the daily war we wage on our knees and back on the slopes we have an ally in Remind Insoles. A company that specializes in aftermarket insoles for those of us that need it. Here’s what I thought of the product after 6 months of trying it out.

Product: Remind Cush Aftermarket Insole

Purpose: Provide you better arch support than what is given in your footwear whether it’s your skate shoes or snowboard boots. I used these in my daily shoes for 6 months to see how they would hold up over time and how well they worked. Plus I have blown customs in my snowboard boots and refuse to use anything else.

Fit: The big thing with any insole is if it fits in your shoe, your foots arch, and your foot shape. I initially found these to be a bit too much arch right away for my lack of an arch, but as they’re self forming after a week they molded to my arch. I was told to speed up this process you could hit them with a hair dryer if need be.

Features: Self forming memory foam and gel in the heels.

Conditions: Wore these for 6 plus months in my high tops and did everything from stand around for 12 hours to bar tending during Octoberfest.

Pros: Anything that gives you better arch support is a plus in my books. These things have done what they intended to do and my lower back is thanking me for it now. It’s a snowboarder owned company and designed from a guy that knows first hand how much we need foot support.
