Well, I skated again with the Superfeet insoles for the third time on Saturday. Less back pain (now it's due to weak muscles instead of posture) and no foot pain in the arch area. Three skate sessions is all it took to break them in. Wow.

I'm sold on them. If I ever get new skates, I'm getting a pair of Superfeet ASAP.

I tend to over pronate as well. I bought a new pair of Bauer One60 goalie skates and had arch/ankle pain (went to the LHS and bought them there, so the fit was good. Tried on several brands sizes).

It didn't go away after 6 skates, so I bought a pair of blue superfeet from REI to replace the stock insoles after reading reviews about superfeet on the boards. It was pretty amazing how much of a difference it immediately made. I wasn't able to easily find a pair of the yellow ones locally.

I had intense pain with flat feet but the yellow superfeet inserts eliminated that.
Waxed laces to keep my skates tight helped as well.

Night and day. I was on the phone with a foot doctor until I decided to use the Superfeet; getting orthotics was unnecessary afterwards.

Thanks for the link! My question would be do they take up anymore space in your skate then the stocker? If so, how much? Will it affect the fit?

I found the blue superfeet (low volume ones) to be about the same thickness as the insoles in my Bauer60s. The yellow one is low volume as well.

Went to purchase the yellow one's a few days ago, very disappointed that I drove to the mall to find out they don't even carry them after advertising them on their site. They carried all of them except the yellow one's which are the one's I need. I'm looking forward to seeing how much of a difference they can make.

Some stores carry their yellow ones in the hockey (skates) section and their other ones in footwear.

After using them for about two months now I can say there's a little pain in my feet during skating drills, but none during any scrimmages. I think the pain in my feet is just part of the process of getting them warmed up.
