So you did the custom build, and they went ahead and sent you the boots minus the custom footbeds? I'm still waiting on an email or call from my inquiry 5 days ago about the Encompass. Not getting a great first impression on the customer service end but I'm interested in hearing how it all comes together for you and what you think of them after getting some miles on them, please update this when you can! Thanks for doing the review/

The custom footbeds are on back order due to materials being hard to get, that is why I don't have them yet. Initial impressions are good even with the regular insoles. I haven't walked much, only 14-20 miles but so far so good. I'll keep you updated.

Thanks man, I appreciate it. Maybe I'll wait until the footbeds are not back ordered before I pull the trigger.

They are currently back ordered on supplies to build the custom insoles. Due to my busy season and me needing boots ASAP Stephen had them sent out so that I could start wearing them immediately. This puts me in a unique situation as I will be able to compare and contrast the normal insoles with the custom ones which I think will make for an awesome review! So far I have about 35 days in the field with them on, and I really like them. Something I noticed right out of the box is they aren't as heavy as I expected and PU Rocker CAM Midsole felt a little different but I do like it a lot and can feel the difference. The waterproof has been great so far and kept my feet dry in all the different conditions I've been in.
