Default Where can I buy Felt or Thinsulate to make insoles for my Pac Boots?

I know that I can order new liners for my old Sorels but I could save some money if I could put an insulating insole under the old liners.

The old liners are compressed from my 260 pound body weight and the boots aren't as warm as they once were. Does anyone know if washing the liners in the washing machine will make them as good as new?

I went to a Safety Shoe place in Wheat Ridge, cant recall the name, 44th and MacIntyrem and bought new insoles for under $10. I had a hard time finding new felts, but this shoe place has them

some high density foam from a camping pad works great for that,.

I made some insulating footbeds with scrap pieces of that aerospsce designed aluminum faced bubble wrap type insulation from the home centers and put them under the insoles. Worked great.

In the past I've cut pieces of scrap carpet to use as an extra layer of insulation in my pack boots. Every little bit helps.

Thanks everyone for all the good ideas. I think I have some High Density Foam so I'll try that first.

I did find one website that sells thinsulate insoles for $10 a pair. schnees.com

I rate the lacrosse iceman boots beyond anything I have ever worn. They are literally too warm at times.
