TIP: The online Bushwalk Inventory System can help bushwalkers with a variety of bushwalk planning tasks, including: Manage which items they take bushwalking so that they do not forget anything they might need, plan meals for their walks, and automatically compile food/fuel shopping lists (lists of consumables) required to make and cook the meals for each walk. It is particularly useful for planning for groups who share food or other items, but is also useful for individual walkers.

What are 'removable footbeds' in Scarpa boots?

Hi, I've just bought some Scarpa boots and notice they mention 'removable footbeds'. I had assumed they meant the removable insoles but elsewhere they refer to insoles so I'm wondering if there is any difference. If so, what?

Cheers and thanks

Thanks Aardvark. Bit of sloppy editing by Scarpa. Two terms for one item.

Cheers.

Insoles are flat
Removable footbeds have metatarsal arch support like orthotics
