I'm already building my second pair on boot design any ideas from you professionals out there. I'm a rookie need all the help I can get.
I agree with Baker's. I tried putting inserts in twice (the Packers and the BHs). Both times within about 5 minutes I had the inserts ripped out. Between the arch in the White's, and the extra arch material in most inserts, your foot will not be happy with an insert. White's are designed to fit tight in the arch area and there isn't enough room for what would effectively be a double arch with insoles inserted.
Also, inserts really should only affect the width of the shoe since they add material under the footbed, not to the length. I can understand why you would need to go a 1/2 size longer in most footwear that doesn't have the width options as White's, but if you truly needed an insert, I would go up a size in width in White's before going longer.
