    There is also a golf insole which is very comfy. It seems similar to the Independence insole to me, but the golf one may have more padding. Some models seem to have padding between the tongue and lining (Heritage) or even padding between the upper and lining for most of the shoe (first cut). Shoes like the Wilbert and Fenway have padding around the ankle and tongue. I have an email in to Allison asking if there is a listing of all the insoles or a document which describes all of them.

    edit: I'm thinking that the golf insole is as comfy as or possibly moreso than the independence insole. The Golf insole should be available at a lower price point.

    I'm very interested in seeing the pictures. Thank you for offering to do that.

    That Golf Insole sounds interesting--could be useful for long walking days in the city.....I wonder if one would have to size up to accommodate the extra padding?

    Who's going to any of the NYC trunk shows? I'm trying to make one, but wouldn't mind meeting some forum members there as well.
