I want to make home-made insoles for my Vivo Barefoot boots. What material could I use that's non-cushioned and thin?

The replacements in the store are expensive and they sold me the wrong ones, so looking to make my own.
Insoles you can buy are not broad enough, so thinking of getting a sheet of material and cutting them out.
The only function the insole has to do is stop the bottom of the shoe getting worn...it should be thin and not have much cushioning.
I would prefer a readily available material as it can be hard to locate things in a foreign country. I have access to a kind of haberdashery market.
I was thinking of leather...but it might be too wrinkly and ruck up..?
