Footbed is hard, causes heel pain, insole is flimsy

I've used Salomon trail shoes in the past and been happy, with these not so much. I use them for work where I stand on my feet almost all day. The ortholite insole is flimsy with no arch support. The footbed is very hard. Combine those together and I've got heel pain halfway through the day. Unfortunate.

I put in some Superfeet green insoles but it makes the shoes too tight on the upper because the tongue is tied to the footbed via elastic straps on the side. I'll have to find some different insoles that are thinner, with better arch support and have some better cushioning.

The tongue is connected to the footbed via some elastic straps. I did find a spot on the inside of my left arch that seems to have been rubbed a little tender by the elastic band. Hopefully this will lessen with break-in.
