Insoles for sole pain

Finally convinced my new Lowa Camino boots to stop butchering my heels (had to resort to Engo Patches, which work great, as none of my other tricks worked), only to find that the soles (balls and heels) of my feet are getting very sore after just an hour of hiking. I tried some running insoles, which eased the hell pain a bit but took none of the sting off the balls. I trailrun and can hike all day in my old boots, so I don't have soft feet. Anyone know of a suitable insole for this problem?

I had real trouble with foot pain in my Meindl boots but then I got the budget Warehouse insoles - they seem to be a dense foam material with cotton tops. They cost about $20 a pair and last for months. Underneath that I pack half an insole from a running shoe (ie: the bit from the foot arch to the toe) which gives extra cushioning to the balls of my feet. This makes a massive difference for long days in the Tararuas.
