    Liners/Insoles for Razors Genesys

    I scored some older Razors Genesys 7.2 and I've got them setup with featherlite 3's, anti-rocker, with 58mm hard as balls wheels. They didn't come with insoles, just the thick heel pad, a thin plastic foot bed, and the liner. I've been trying different combos of insoles both inside and outside of the liner and was hoping not too spend any money...I love how these skate,when I'm skating... But they're lacking in the comfort department. Like it makes me think this is what chiks feel like in high heels. The best I've tried so far is the Blank liners from my RB Solos but they're just too high for me. So how do i go about getting some cushion under my feet without losing the solid/planted feel? Also anybody know what the Velcro tongue is all about? I stuffed some open cell foam in there..

    It’s for drugs lol. And really just get some thick beefy insoles if you need more padding. I mean what do you consider as comfort? I skate my THEM 908s with a myfit second skin liner that has very little padding and super feet yellow insoles that are made of mostly plastic and have no pain what so ever.

      Def too deep for drugs.. Learned that the hard way.. The more i skate these I'm understanding the raised heel setup and getting used to them. But still find myself fidgeting with the laces and cuff way too often. Think its just the stitching and tongue parts getting folded in the wrong direction or some shit. Ill look into those super feet insoles since i remeber i did have some of those a long time ago and I feel like some sort of structure is what's missing here. When i put in some thick ultra plush insoles I lose that solid planted feel and they get all loose and unstable.

      now my Fattys are what I'd call comfort. I could roll around in those all day no problem but even with FLT2 frames, anti-rocker, and good 58mm outers they are far from confidence-inspiring. Which I think is mostly due to the flat boot vs. The raised heel boot.

        The other thing to factor in is there is a reason everyone stoped skating that boot as soon as razor made the sl skate. They don’t fit good unless you have a huge foot, They are a horrible sloppy skate. Even in the correct size there was hundreds of comments back in the day of people complaining about there feet sliding around in the shell.

          That's the best part about tryna jump back into the game! Looking at pictures of 3 different boots made by the same company, that come with the same frames, and only slightly different wheelsizes. Asking wtf is the actual differences here? Stole the insoles from some old Supra Skytop Muskas and they're ok for now.

          how much narrower is the SL? I do have a wider foot (rock a 10.5W work boot, 11 in Vans and most other "skate" shoes). My Fattys are a 12 and are about perfect width but just a hair long. And the RB Solos are an 11 with the liner fitting great but the boot is just all around too big and heavy.

            It’s not just that they are wide, my memory is a little fuzzy on those skates, it’s been over ten years since they were popular. I think what the general consensus was that they were really wide in weird places like the heel. I too have a wide foot and it really sucks lol. Up until the THEM skate came out this year I could not skate a plastic boot at all. I was stuck skating carbons and they don’t have enough padding in the heel for my liking.

              That makes more sense.. The shell has very little foot shape to it. I didnt know that newer hard shell skates would be any different lol. Figured all of the "fit" just came from the liners. Guess that just means I need to search a little harder for a deal on some SL boots or THEM

                Doubt anyone even gives a care, but I think I finally found the ticket. Picked up some knock-off Super feet from the local Dick's and they're actually pretty nice.. But then today I stopped by Roller Warehouse and dropped a whopping $30 on a pair of SL liners.. Holy fuckballs talk about a difference! The RB New Jacks would also be a good replacement, they've got a denser stiffer padding but run a half size or so bigger.

                Moral of the story? When in doubt, Rollerwarehouse.com
