    great video! I almost require an aftermarket insole due to the size of my skate being a 13-14 and wearing a size 15-16 in sneakers. Hope to see a review on which is the best for you.

    I've got low arches, and therefore have really bad pronation. I got a set of the CCM low arch inserts and a lot of my shin splints and arch pain has gone away. Easily worth the $50 they cost.

    Are your super feet insoles the newer ones or the older ones? I was just wondering if they felt any different from each other.

    I use the bauer speed plates that came in the 1x and I love them. I have been interested in trying those ccms but until I need new skates I'll stick to the speed plates. They really make your skate feel solid on your foot with no negative space. Definitely worth the money. Also I'm not sure if I'd want any gel pad or soft material under my feet. Seems like it might decrease energy transfer but idk thats just my two cents. Are we still going to see a radius profiling video?

    Great video Jeremy, I have used the CCM mid arch in my last skates and found them to be brilliant. Very comfortable and really felt a difference. I've got Supremes now and got the speed plate I did try it initially with CCM bed but swapped over to the speedplate and definitely see a difference in comfort and performance and foot fatigue. I love the speedplate and the ccm footbeds but feel they are different in terms of what they offer you as a player. The speedplate looking to up performance and the ccm comfort.

    my two cent: the superfeet does enhance performance. It has a stabilising cup which helps locking your heel and the cup noticeably put you in a higher position for better angle of attack on the ice

    I personally own the Bauer Speed plates and the CCM mid Arch and high Arch insoles and my personal favorite is the CCM with the high Arches..
    Now to clarify, both The Bauer and CCM insoles are really good but I lean toward the CCM because of over all comfort and being in 40+ years old I'm looking to be a bit more comfy when I'm out there.
    The heal is more squishy on the CCM where the Bauer is harder and more sensitive to what's happening on the ice and is harder through out the foot print.

    So if your going for feel and what's happening and not worried about comfort as much then I'd say go with the Bauer speed plate which has the advantage in the Arch of which really gives you the most connection to the skate to the inner side wall giving you the least amount of negative space for when your switching back and forth from your inner edge to your outer edge.
    You just have a slight advantage in your confidence over the CCM.

    I was having more of an issue being comfortable on the balls of my feet both hurt regardless but I find the CCM has a slightly more comfort in the heal and the ball and toe areas of your feet.
    The heal being the part that sticks out the most with being more comfortable,your ball and toes being almost unnoticeable in difference in comfort but in skating over time slightly noticeably better.

    With the CCM it's just ever so slightly noticeable in being not as connected to the side wall and for what ever reason I put them in my skates and go and they are ready,whee the speed plates you NEED to heat them up and get them right or they will put a hurting you.

    I also found that I had to reheat the left one like five times and right one heated pulled out of oven put in skate put on skate tightened up stood up did skate pee pee dance and right was good to go but left had cooled to much before I could get it right and ended up using my wife's hair dryer to re-warm it and then tweet the trouble areas so in hind-site I would do them separately.

    Just a heads up for anyone looking into Superfeet: You don't have to get the yellow ones! Those are for people with really high arches, but people consistently think those are the only ones you can use in hockey skates… WRONG! I have flat wide feet. Someone recommended me those yellow ones and I was in so much pain it was unbearable. I researched and found that Superfeet come in all shapes and sizes. I picked up a pair of black ones (for flat feet) and I've been using them ever since. Make sure you look into which one fits your feet best. I think all of their footbeds would work in hockey skates. You just have to cut down the toe part to size 👍🏻

    My issue is arch pain after a long warm up. Never when I just throw the skates on, only after. As if my feet were to swell after the body gets going. Superfeet and/or punching my skates had no effect. Bought new skates a bit wider with little change but now I just deal with it. Any suggestions?

    Personally, I didn't see a lot of help from the Superfeet, but I've absolutely loved the Bauer Speedplates in my Nexus skates.

    An unrelated side note, they can be a little tough to work out of your skates when you're drying them. They like to wedge themselves in tight.

    My son loves his Bauer speed plates . They did crack twice due to a high rivet on the heal of the skate . However Bauer did warranty them through a local dealer so there was no wait time . The rivet was fixed for free also .

    I've been to 4 different hockey stores that sell the various insoles and the one thing they universally agree on is the speed plates are trash. i enjoy my super feet, there are many options not just the one style as shown here.

    I have a bony protrusion in my instep on each foot (similar to accessory navicular syndrome,) the little bit of pronating while skating in stock foot bed would rub that protrusion against the sidewalls of the skate boot, and after 2 hours, I'd be in considerable pain and with a nasty blister over the protrusion. Got the yellow Superfeet and the arch support (I have medium/average arches) supinated my natural stance in the skates just a little bit and I never had a problem with protrusion digging into the sidewalls ever again. Once went back and used an old pair of skates with stock footbeds for 45 minutes and I had blisters so bad I couldn't skate for a week. Superfeet have made me a believer (and damn things last forever, I've had the same pair for 5+ years).

    hated my ccm medium arched insoles which i put in the bin after 10 minutes because they threw me back onto my heels way way too much ! they were fitted properly using that heat board. speed plates great for weeks on end then started getting horrific pain in both inner balls of my feet rebaked them and still no better even bought new ones and only a tad less painfull BUT for all those painless sessions in them my god the feel from the ice was improved 10 fold, i have a medium to high arch so skating on standard oem footbeds really lacks in feel and fit feels like my arches move downwards inside the boot. currently using some cheap running shoe foam insoles with a plastic heel and arch support with gel pad in the heel i trimmed and then heated them so that the plastic formed to my arch and heel and ive never looked back only £5.99 posted too 👍 comfort trumps performance everytime,every place, everywhere because if your not comphy and in pain you dont perform

    Any one have any red hot tips to stop foot numbness? I got a pair of vapor x500s (my first pair of skates ever) and whether I really crank them tight or just tight enough so I feel supported my feet always go numb after about half an hour of skating. I've tried lots of different variations of lace tightening to see if anything helps but I always get numb feet. The boot feels like a perfect fit in the sense that my toes are just brushing the toe cap and my feet aren't squished but also have very little room to move. Do you think aftermarket inner soles would help me much? Cheers, any help is appreciated

    I need insoles with arch support as I have dicky knees. I had yellow Superfeet but they gave me lace bite. The problem is that they raise the heel, and pull back the toes, thereby changing the fit of the skate. I now have Bauer speed plates and they really support the arches. I also feel my feet are more in touch with the ice. And since they do not raise the heel, the skate still fits well. I think they are excellent. But as the chap in the video says, unless you need arch support, stick with the stock insoles.

    I have very flat and wide feet. Superfeet yellow helped my edge control and alleviated knee pain. I have also tried the CCM medium arch insoles all in my RBZ and while they are OK, I like the more firm "locked in" feeling I get from my Superfeet. The CCM custom insoles are too spongy and the stock ones do not provide the right level of alignment correction that I require.

    Man just go superfeet for most people. They offer comfort plus support and they have been doing it for years. Only get those Bauer and CCM insoles in the night end product. I played for years and without them and I’m a severe pronator and it changed how I felt at the end of a game. Plus put them in my shoes because like skates the insoles only protect my feet from the stitching and shoes

    I've got high arches and even on brand new S29 Bauer skates my feet were hurting on the arches. I saw the Bauer speed plates on sale and grabbed a pair, just popped them in without baking them and they feel 1000x better. If you have high arches and your feet hurt at the arch definitely consider these to aleviate that pain.
