Hockey Orthotics- what to buy??

I have over-pronating feet.

I have 600$ orthotics for my running shoes which are great.

But I need something for my Vector 10.0 hockey skates, and not ready to shell out for custom orthotics.

Do any of you have the same problem?

What do you guys suggest?




(i've tried superfeet and shock docs does nothing for me)

Have you tried customizing the superfeet?
Try supporting them similar to your $600 orthotics. Build them up from underneath where necessary.


I've also seen systems for molding skate soles. $125.00 range IIRC and if it is available where you can access it.

You'll probably have to dish out some cash to fix this problem

The Sole sport insoles have built up a decent following on Modsquad and have gotten good reviews. I would give those a shot.

lol, i worked at the LHS, they are completely moldable, and if anyone tells you different they are ignorant. You put them in your skate in the skate oven, and then you put them on your feet, they are made to be used WITH the heat lol. Just make sure they are the hockey ones and not the shoe ones

Well Ian I don't know what the LHS is or how that makes you an expert but the superfeet are not meant to be moldable. I spoke with the rep from the company about carrying them in my office and asked that exact question and was told they are a prefab orthotic and not meant to be molded. I would imagine heat would make them malable but that actually may ruin them.

I have plantar fascitis, hammer-toes and a bunion on my right foot. Yup, my feet situation just isn't pretty.

I found my plantar fascitis seems to feel better in my boot.

Maybe you should re-consider getting new skates? Not every skate is made for every foot. Each manufacturer makes a different boot for a different foot. In my case Reeboks were a world of difference compared to my Bauers.

My left foot pronates while my right foot is fine. I solved the problem with Graf skates and having the holder adjusted. The pitch of Graf skates has you more on your toes and I found this helped with pain that I was getting in my arch. The pitch of the skate puts me more on the balls of my feet thus taking some of the weight off of the arch. The holder was also slightly adjusted so that it lined up a little more towards the inside of the boot, compensating for the pronation. Footbeds are good but do not resolve the issue IMO. Any questions, let me know.

I also over pronate and have custom made orthodics in my shoes.

I went to my orthodics place and they made some custom ones for my skates. Only cost me $300. The guy who made them said he made them for Alfredsson & Chara.

Made a really big difference in my skates. I would recommend them.

I thought about the custom orthodics but couldn't justify the cost. I was skating in CCM Vectors at the time with superfeet and it helped but switching to Graf and adjusting the holder has really worked out. The Grafs were so much more comfortable that I didn't even need to change the footbeds.
