Since the orthotics only cover the latter half of my feet (heels), the front half is exposed to the rough bottom of the skates. After a pretty intense game, the front of my feet gets a bit wet and cold. Does anyone use these kind of orthotics and put some kind of custom 'half-sole' in the front? Thanks.
Orthotics made for shoes will not fit correctly in your skate boot. They are far too wide and, even if you do manage to squeeze them in, you will not be able to tighten your skates enough for proper foot support.
