Foot pain with CCM Vector 10's
A few years ago I signed up for a skating class to learn hockey. I went to my LHS and had alot of problems finding a good skate. After trying on almost every skate available I settled on the CCM Vector 10's. Problem was after 5 minutes the bottoms of my feet hurt so bad I had to keep taking breaks. I tried the grey Superfeet insoles and they helped a little but the pain still sucked. Because of this I put skating and hockey on the back burner.

Now I want to get back into it. Problem is I still have the issue with foot pain. I recall a new version of the Vector 10's was coming out with a moldable gel footbed or something similar. Did that ever pan out? If so would it be something that I could purchase for my skates?

If not has anything come out over the last 2 years I should look at?

your skates probably have to be broken in if their still like new unless you got them baked

I've had this same problem my whole life. Its an intense, aching pain all along the bottom of my feet. Made me quit hockey when I was 11 because I couldn't enjoy it due to the excruciating pain. Last year at the age of 21 started playing again with the same intense pain. I find the first skate of the season is the worst, after one of my first games last year I had to sit in the locker room for about 10 minutes before I could put any weight on my feet. As it stands i just put up with it. It really sucks, but at this point its worth it.

I really have no idea what causes this pain. The only other thing that does the same thing is ski boots. I remember waiting in line at a ski lift in Marmot just about ready to kill myself, and when I finally got to sit down on the lift it was pure euphoria, like a damned orgasm in my feet.

My main theory is that I need wider skates. When I started playing again last year I also took up goaltending and found some EE width goalie skates for cheap and it seems like they cause a lot less pain.

Your skates don't fit.

If thats true than I've never worn a pair of skates or ski boots that remotely fit.

That's the reason. I've been through a lot of makes until I realized I just need a wider boot.

My skates were fitted and baked. I didn't have any pain in the shop. I skated in them for at least a dozen skating classes. It's not like arch pain. It's along the entire bottom of my foot. I was able to reproduce the pain last night doing calf raises (toes to heel).

I may give the Superfeet yellows a try. Anyone done a comparison between the newer yellows and the older gray version?
