How would you compare this insole to the Athletic variety?
The athletic insole has more cushion for impact, but they are both comfortable.
Hiking and running are forms of the same activity with different cyclic loads. They both are well designed. The choice would be best to chose footwear for the intended use. I hike miles of rocky beach coast in boots then switch to light hikers to trek the trail home before dark. I use each for the intended task.
