Question, with insoles/orthotics, does it still take a while to break into the skate?
I have both superfeet and custom orthotics, but I only put the superfeet in because I can't fit both in there (my insole has a plastic bit under that won't fit to the orthotics). I've done about 3-4 hours of skating, and my arch pains varied. The first two times it didn't hurt at all, but the last time I went (today) was pretty bad - only the right foot though... Could it be because I've been working on my right foot hockey stop continuously?
Also, should I try to fit the custom orthotics in my skates and remove the superfeet insoles? I got the orthotics made -after- I baked my skates... Or should I keep the superfeet and see if it gets better after a few more sessions?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
