I couldn’t be happier with my Birkenstock insole purchase. I called into the store (Birkenstock Plus) and explained I was looking for a replacement pair of insoles that matched the insoles in a pair of Birkenstock Stowe boots I have owned for 3 years. Birkenstocks are the only shoes I can wear because of my terrible plantar fasciitis. I had been taking the insoles out of these particular dress boots and putting them into a pair of Wolverine work boots. The Wolverine’s needed their own set of insoles so I called in for assistance. The store employee was very kind and helpful and told me the A 630/A 640 would be as close as I would find, but they would not be identical. He was exactly right. The insole was slightly deeper, but still worked for what I needed it for. I had to trim the cork insole to fit the I-90 boot exactly, using the original insole as a template. I will admit it was a super tight fit getting them in, but now they fit like a dream! (Thankfully there was enough space in the body portion of the boot to accommodate the deeper insole.) I finally have a pair of work boots I can wear all day without pain.
I ordered these to replace some insoles in my hiking shoes, but they’re too big (in the heels). I know that this is not for what they are intended. Not their fault, just didn’t work for what I needed. I’m keeping them, though, for my Sorel winter boots or cut them down to fit the shoes. They look as comfy as the regular Birds footbed!
