NegromancerOh god no! They'll create way more issues than they will solve. A good footbed or insole should be firm and supportive not squishy and weak. If you put them in your feet will be all over the place in the boot.
There are insoles specifically created for ski boots, they come in two types. One good, one bad. You have your fully custom footbeds primarily made by a company called Sidas which are excellent and everyone should have and then you have what's called 'trim to fits' that major brand of these are Superfeet which aren't ideal.
Fully custom footbeds from Sidas (there's also another brand Boot Doctor or something not entirely sure the name of the brand but they're good apparently) are what you want. These footbeds are made by a professional boot fitter and are custom/unique to your feet. They come in a flat non-shaped form and then they get heated up and molded/shaped to your feet with a special machine. These provide the most support and without a proper footbed your boot will never truly fit and perform to its max. They're not cheap about $150 but they will last 2 to 3 pairs of boots.
The next option are trim to fits. These are not custom and should be avoided. They come in a specific shape such as flat arch, medium arch, and high arch. They won't provide nearly as much support as a proper custom footbed and so it's best to go for a custom.
Don't put your Dr Scholls insole in your ski boots it will increase your chance of screwing up your ankles, toes, and shins.
Duckonquacki have small feet so they help the boots feel more snug on me.
