I Need Some Sole

Have you ever been hiking and thought “these insoles feel really hard, I wonder if I should replace them?”  If you are a guy then sure you have, but they are still new, aren’t they!  I looked at them when I got home and said “Damn, these look rough.  I wonder how long they will last?”  At this point Charlene adds from around the corner “Just get new ones already.  Quit being a cheap-ass”.  Looking up my pass Amazon Prime orders they are only from August.  Let’s see that’s 1, 2, 3…, 8 months.  That’s okay, isn’t it?  Wait, we walk about 70,000 steps a per four-day work week or about 33 miles plus weekends.  That means I walked about 40 miles a week at eight months.  So… these insoles have over 1200 miles on them.  Hmmmm, I guess it’s time.  Here are a couple pictures to show the old versus the new. With the Appalachian Trail 10 days away, I’m really glad I decided to update them, and so are my feet.
