got a couple of pairs of air max that are a half size too small - they fit perfectly without the insoles in place just wondering if this is going to do any damage to the shoe wearing them without the insole?

or is there another option i.e paper thin inners i can purchase?

Use to do this years ago. Never did any damage to any of the shoes I removed the insole from(generally forces). More like going up a quarter of a size.

95% of Nike shoes cushioning these days is done through the insoles.. There is little to no foam/air feedback. What you think is comfort and bounce is likely coming from the insoles... So I would be careful.

How about buy shoes in your size?
These days its not guaranteed, sometimes i get stuck with a pair that is a .5 sz away from my actual size, a paper thin insole that is comfortable and will make up for my size at the same time would be a good alternative

I did read your post. You bought a couple pairs of shoes in the wrong size. Go buy shoes in the correct size, problem solved.
