both great questions! i was thinking about that myself.
the inserts are not adhesive, but the insole fills the shoe, and its bottom is rubbery like, so it stays in place really well. i think that that is better, as these things tend to wear out before the shoe, and when you adhere it, and then need to remove it, it becomes a pain to peel off all the little pieces that are stuck inside that shoe. and if you dont remove them, you feel all bumply underneath your new insole. without the adhesive, you can just pop it out, and put in a new one when needed.
im not sure about the new sock. the thing is, that with the half sock, plus the full sock and insole the fit is pretty perfect, and i dont want to mess with it. and the insert keeps the full sock in place, so i dont need to adhere it. also, the GG shoe trees dont fit with the inserts on top of the half sock.
all things considered i think i will just take them in and out as needed, but i may remove the half sock and glue down the full sock, or maybe glue the full on top of the half if when the shoes are worn in, if i find that one of those ways is consistently how i wear the shoes.
