    I am struggling still to get shoes that fit,
    Latest pair cost £60 from decathlon , expensive for me and they felt fine instore but when riding my toes still have not got enough room .
    Took the insoles out and it felt a lot better, so i was wondering could anyone recommend a really thin insole or what about using some cardboard ?

    Will decathlon take back shoes that have cleat marks on them ?

    Any shoe shop should have thin insoles.



    Other option is take them back but I guess you did try in first.

    How about cutting an insole from a sheet of leather? In fact I've been planning to do do this with my Shimano MTB shoes as the supplied insoles make my feet sweaty.

    I can't see them taking the shoes back if used

    Cheap insoles are thin, try Poundland or similar

    This weather, I dont wear socks with my shoes. Would this make a difference?

    Do you actually need insoles at all? Depending on the material a good cobbler may be able to to stretch them for you. Worse case wear them around the house with 3 pairs of socks on for a while.

    Allow me to put this differently. Would you buy a pair of shoes from Decathlon if it has cleat marks and signs of having been used by someone else?

    You have your consumer rights for returning products depending on when you purchased them.

    Any general wear will be considered enough to render the product only for use in "used" or second hand clearance sales, so they would take it back for that reason.

    No, its not a statutory right, that's why you need to check to see what the individual store's policy is.
