One thing I'd like to add to this is that if you're slipping anyway, extra friction is going to cause a mad blister.

How did we get on the topic of orthotics anyway??? What's going to help for rougher surfaces is extra padding and/or shock absorption, not rigid support... EDIT: besides suspension, plate action, wheel hardness/diameter, etc...
