Insoles in wading boot?

Does anyone out there have any recommendations for insoles that work well in wading boots? I recently got a new pair of wading boots that seem to run large. I'm thinking of adding some sort of insole to them so that they'll fit a little more snugly. As it is now, the tips of the eyelets are almost touching.

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

NO worries...

There are quality orthopedic inserts out there if you don't mind springing for $20-30...
Some old stock sneaker/running shoe inserts will take up some of the extra space...
There are micro-fibre (I've got some flat seam fitted socks called STORMKLOTH) and neopreme socks that will fill the void like stocking foot waders...
"NRS" sells "expedition WetSocks" "wetsocks" and "hydroskin socks"...
I used some "SealSkinz" socks while in Alaska and they were excellent...
Be sure they fit right (you don't want a bunch of lumps under your toes) and insist on FLAT SEAMS!!!
Any good outfitter should carry what you are looking for.

Happy wading...Watch out for the BEARS!
