inner boots which sometimes come with plastic boots were an essential
part of the design, meant for insulation. Did you discard them
completely? If so, what about the volume the felt boots filled? Or did
you add the inners to the felt boots?

inners which you are swapping around between different shoes, or
several. The confusion in my mind is because I was thinking that the
different shoes surely have slightly different shapes, so surely you
should mold the inner to suit each one?
I can't use them in my trail runners and low hiking shoes.
Edit: why not? Enquiring minds want to know!
- Hi Roger,
Thank you for the help and edits as always. I made all changes and
added to make things clearer about the inner-boots of the plastic
doubles. I actually replaced the entire inner-boot. The felt ones are
gone. I tend to forget that not everyone knows what I am thinking
I tried to make it clearer also that these (and the other pair I
bought) are for high volume boots. That is why they can't be used in
running shoes and such. They make thinner types for other shoes, but I
do not have any. I tend to go through my trail runners pretty quick and
with the weight I carry with them on being so low I do not have any
issues with most supplied insoles.
I will upload it, but if you think I need to be clearer yet let me know.
