    Tall Boots Question

    So I'm in need of new tall boots, and I have bad knees.

    My question is would it be worth it buy normal boots and add insoles to help my knees? Or can I get custom boots to help with my knees?

    I currently wear Dr.Scholls shoes and they are improving my feet slowly.
    Any suggestions are great! Thank you.

    I am not sure of an answer for you, but I am interested to see what people say since I have bad knees as well. If you have normal boots though, you could get insoles I guess that would at least help somewhat.

    I find with my dress boots that they are too tall in the foot, so I need insoles to keep them on anyways. They are semi-custom Petrie 3000s.
    Generally, custom boots are custom in style, sizing, etc and they don't really do insoles as far as I know?? Your best option is probably just to go for semi-custom and add your own insoles.
    Plus really, how much walking are you doing in your boots? In order to keep them the correct shape and not wear them out quickly you really should be putting them on right before you ride, taking them off right after and never exposing them to a lot of water.

    ^^agreed. I was thinking the same. I don't wear my boots as regular shoes. They are just for riding. You might need to wear them around the house to break them in a little thou.

    The "custom" part of tall boots is usually getting a more proper fit and/or adding fancy details. If insoles help your knees I say put in your own insoles.

    Don't wear them around the house to break them in! Maybe it's not so bad if you're a hunter or jumper? But I know if you have dressage boots they should be downright uncomfortable to walk in. If you walk around in them you'll break their spine and they'll sag down.
