Do orthotic insoles cause creases to be more prevalent as you walk and bend the shoe?

    Insoles increases the height of your heels, which in turn creates a different standing posture. When standing, you can see the leather more bended since the heels are leveled higher but the front part of your foot is not.

    I guess there's no way around it?

    With removable insoles plus thin orthotics, that probably wouldn't happen.

    I don't think any of the AE's Park aves, 5th avs, strands have soles that are removable right?

    I've used orthotics for a couple years and I haven't noticed any creasing. The fit is usually tolerable.

    ^ Same.

    I think the only way to test is to wear one in one shoe and not in the other for a day and see if there is a noticeable difference. (A very awkward walking day)
