    My advice? Just stay away from all of those. Go and get yourself some Scholl GelActive Work (or Sports) insoles or something comparable and you will have a lot more value for less money. All these paper thin "brand" insoles are a joke.

    Before we dive into this any further - have you ever had an actual real life look at any "serious" replacement insole? Spenco, Superfeet, Scholl, whatever brand?

    I highly recommend going through these threads to get some more information about the qualities an insole should have:

    I don't know which brands are easily available in Indonesia, but if you can find Spenco Cross Trainers, those are the ones to get. Still my #1 insoles. If you find Scholl, then either try the Running, Sport, or Work versions.

    And if you are worried about the additional weight, just keep in mind that you need some material to actually do something in terms of shock reduction or arch support. The stuff that Yonex and Victor are selling wheighs pretty much nothing because they don't have any material on them to actually do anything. Just look at them after a couple of sessions - they are flat like a literal piece of cardboard.

    already did my research and just found out i got anterior shin splint LOL
    my feet is neutral with a little bit high arc on my left foot (i did a test on asics store)
    but still in category neutral foot

    im using lining DF01 Pro Shoes with victor xd11 insoles
    sometimes i feel like my insoles move a little bit, but still safe until now
    fyi, i only play on proper badminton field i.e wooden and carpet floor

    and i have found spenco cross trainers that priced almost $85 in my country
    and school get active sports for almost $30

    is that still worth it? compared to $50 yonex insoles
    thanks for the enlightment
