I had been having pain in my left little toe joint/pad area after an hour of hard riding. I tried Shimano heat molded in soles, Specialized Body Geometry insoles, and a lot of cleat adjustments. Nothing worked for me until I was discussing my foot pain with one of the Western's bike fitters and he recommended I try the Aline insoles. After a few rides my initial skepticism evaporated along with my toe pain and any concerns about the price. The Aline won't solve everyone's foot pain problems but are worth a try. If they don't work I was told you can return them for a full refund even if you had to trim them to fit inside your shoes.
