    Alex - My dad went to have a pair of LL Bean boots repaired once after having them for years. They apologized and sent him a new pair at no cost. It might be worth it to speak with one of their reps to see if you can swap out your boots for another size.

    As for insoles, I've used the one with the steel supports and even they seemed to shrink over time. On mine the toes actually curled up a bit, making the whole insole shorter. For that reason I think I'm familiar with what you're talking about regarding the soles sliding around. You might try cutting out a pair from wool felt. That would give you a bit of spring with each step as well as some insulation. Just a suggestion.

    That's all for now. Take care and until next time...Be well.

    Another vote for the green Superfeet. TOTALLY worth the $, you won't regret it.

    Try these. If the shoes are still too loose you need a paddle not an insole.

    Thanks for all the tips folks. Since I was driving by evil walmart, I grabbed a $7.00 pair of insoles. Seem to do the trick. I may end up also getting some of that wool material that was mentioned too take up more space and also for the insulation.

    Still have an inch and a half room in front of my toes but I don't feel my foot floating around. We'll test this out in the mud later this week in Ohio

    I use Superfeet or Spenco Gel insoles for all of my boots. Definitely worth the money and last a long time. Good luck.

    Just send them back to Bean and have the rubber bottoms replaced 1 size smaller. I've had it done before when they've worn out. It's a service they provide, they do charge but it's a lot less than a new pair and they come back just like new.
