Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

The way the sizing works on these is a little confusing. I got these for one of our dogs and measured his paws to be in between 2 and 2.25 inches wide, so I went with the XS thinking the XXS would be way too tight. I was wrong. The XS were way too big, I returned them and had to size down.

Bert is not really happy with them, but its better than his paws getting cold and having to stop every 100 feet to rub his pads to get the snow out.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have a pair of La Sportiva Pamir boots, they are an all leather stiff backpacking boot with a paper thin insole that offers no support. I used to wear custom orthotics, but they didn't hold my foot in place very well. The result was pretty severe blisters on the back of my heels. I switched to these and havent looked back. I haven't had a blister since putting these bad boys in my boots and end up wearing them way more often than i used to. My foot no longer slides around in there and I feel like I have the perfect amount of arch support.

I recommend getting these immediately when buying a new pair of boots. Trimming them can be a little difficult if you don't have a very sharp pair of scissors or a razor blade.
