Standard issue running shoes during phase one and insoles?

#1
I've performed a search and couldn't find what I'm looking for.

Firstly, I believe during phase one recruits are issued the UK Gear PT-03 SC Mens Road Running Shoe? This I believe... UK Gear PT-03 SC Mens Road Running Shoe: Amazon.co.uk: Shoes & Accessories Am I correct?

Secondly, due to having rather fallen arches I've always run a in neutral/moderate support shoe with a good off the shelf orthotic insole to prevent my feet rolling inward. Up to now this has kept me relatively injury free since a nasty bout of shin splints when I first took up running in a shoe completely unsuitable for my feet.

My fear is that I'll get to phase one and develop an injury quickly in the PT-03.

Has anyone any experience how receptive the PT-03 are to insoles and whether taking insoles with me will be an issue with the training staff?

Ideally I'll buy a pair, experiment and get used to them before phase one but I thought i'd gauge the response on here first.

Thanks

Do you have feet at all, or do you have flippers?
