    That sucks... You need something that pushes their feet up in the arches to counter pronation. Carbon insoles are not intended to do that. Greens are the highest arch profile from Superfeet.  I think the sales rep was pointing you in the right direction. 

    Obviously, it also would be good to go see a podiatrist doc so he can get you some pointers on what should be done. Other high arch insoles are available from Spenco and few others. Usually, they all cost in $45-$50 range. 

    Do not get Greens for your skates - they'll never fit as they're not compatible with skates.

    Okay awesome. That was always the best part of super feet yellow: the heel stabilisation. If these are even more rigid that's probably s good thing for a 5'9" 235lb guy.

    Yeah it's a huge benefit for some bigger guys. Personally, I'm a little light at 175lb so I didn't notice a huge difference in rigidity since I wouldn't come down super hard on the Yellow to begin with, but I notice the material difference big time on starts and stops, turns, and the first couple quick steps in a stride, it's much more responsive.

    Just by visually comparing the Yellow versus the Carbon Pro Hockey product images, it would appear to me that the Carbon Pro Hockey may be lower profile and possibly take up less volume than the yellows. The other thing you notice when comparing product images is that the yellow has a more pronounced arch support, as you can see by the plastic. The carbon pro hockey does not have that same arch support. This is just from eyeballing it. The potential lower volume is attractive to me as I would not mind more room versus what I have with the yellows.


    Sean, can you confirm any of this?


    Sorry for the delay here! They are slightly thinner. We knew that some reviews of the Yellow suggested that they "take up too much space" so we wanted that to no longer be a concern. The arch support is similar, but the feeling under your foot is going to be different. The Yellow will give more, and be more flexible underneath a foot, which isn't always the best for bigger players. The stronger EVOlyte material (the carbon fiber) is going to hold the shape/support more, giving a much more powerful feeling when in stride. 


    @the_game @OptimusReim @SlaterC42 @SolarWind @flyers10 These are not designed to be baked! The specific heel-to-toe profile is something that we brought over from the yellow, so baking them could compromise the material and the fit.

    are they thinner then the speedplate ??

    I do not have Speedplate's exact thickness, so it's hard to say for sure.

    So I watched Chase's video on IW and they say that the yellow is for more of a recreational player and then carbon pro is for the elite athlete.  I am neither for sure!  They also say that the yellow is more for comfort and the pro is more performance driven.


    Question - Is the pro "less comfortable" than the yellow?  Or will it feel more or less the same but give me some performance benefits.

    The Carbon Pro Hockey is more performance driven because of the materials we used. The feeling through the arch will be similar, but stronger due to plastic vs. carbon fiber. Each comes with a 60 Day Comfort Guarantee, so you've got two months to figure out which works better for you!



  4. Sorry for the delay in reponse, boys! Here's a link to purchasing direct from our site - though some of your normal stores may have them in stock already. https://www.superfeet.com/en-us/insoles-and-sandals/carbon-pro-hockey


    @OptimusReim - They are sized by shoe size, as we've found that's typically a more accurate read for players since skate sizes fluctuate quite a bit. 


    @milos Yes, these are trim-to-fit as well.


    @brandonthequick These are a very different product, but the profile is pretty similiar to that of the Yellows. Should be an easy transition!

    It feels different how? Explain please ☺

    The best way I can describe it is more powerful, which sounds weird, but the stronger cap material allows for a more powerful response from the energy you put into it. It also feels a bit more "filling" if you will, and gives a little less of the "it's at the back of my arch" feeling even though we're still working to stabilize the rear section of the foot. I've skated on Yellow's since about 2010 and my transition to wearing this product was seamless!

    Are the new carbon pro hockey superfeet going to have the same fit profile as the yellows?? I have had my Yellows for about 4 months and really like them, so I would upgrade as long as the fit profile is the same!

    They have an extremely similar profile, but with different materials being used, the feeling is a bit different. It's not noticeably higher or lower, to my foot, but with a stronger cap, it feels different.

    this is my question as well, I got flat feet and the only soles I can use superfeet the rest hurt my feeet

    See above!

    Is the forefoot thickness the same as the current generation yellow insoles? 

    As a rep, I do not have exact measurements, but it does not feel thicker in my skates that I previously wore Yellow's in. It's also tapered along the outside edges of the foam used to give a more streamlined fit in the skate.

    SeanCornell91, can you advise if either these or the original Yellow Superfeet take up more volume when compared to stock Bauer footbeds? I really like the Yellow Superfeet and have recommended them to several friends of mine. My only issue is the loss of volume. Also, how do these compare to the Carbon Superfeet? Thanks!

    SInce Bauer uses different stock insoles on different skates, it's hard to say for certain. With that said, let's use the "average stock insole" as the comparison. When you make sure to remove the original insole and replace with either these or the Yellow insole, the "loss of volume" is essentially the thickness of the cap. The forefoot is a wash since the foams are generally the same thickness. Also, on the caps, the small pillar's you see around the bottom are not the bottom most part of the cap - so those are not "jacking up the foot" the way some people may think they'll be. They're actually on there to help your foot move the few degrees that it needs to, without going too far. 


    Compared to the Carbon: same EVOLyte cap material, but different cap shape (this is designed specifically for skates) and different profile!

    Ok so I have low arches and heel spurs (from tight achilles tendon my whole life) I wear orthotics in my daily kicks, but have nothing in my skates yet. Ive been researching the older model superfeet along with other inserts, but have yet to deside on a solution.  

    I've been out of the game for 20+ years and now back in and playing 2 to 3 nights a week.   


    Feel like sending an old man a set to test out and I can do a long term report?? :D.  

    Shoot me a message and we can discuss further!

    Are these going to be available in the UK?

    I would check with your local retailer to see if they'll be bringing them in. I also just fired off an email to one of our UK reps to confirm. I'll circle back with you when he responds!

    Mine are holding up okay but the little "plate" on the underside is starting to lose its adhesion. Definitely interested as long as they aren't more than $50 or so.

    Is this on the Yellow model? If it's within 60 days, send it back - no questions asked. If it's after 60 days, I would call our Customer Care dept. at 800-634-6618 and let them know, I'm sure they'll take care of you. These should be lasting about a full "normal" season (aka all of us not skating 5+ times a week).

  9. Hey Guys, 


    As some of you may know, I work as a rep for Superfeet. This post is not intended to be SPAM, but I wanted to let the loyal MSH community get a first look at the brand new hockey specific insole we're launching in May - CARBON PRO HOCKEY. Here are some of the features:


    • Up to 11% better acceleration on the ice.
    • The FlyBridge loads and channels energy and absorbs vibration.
    • EVOLyte carbon fiber-reinforced stabilizer cap for weight-defying support
    • Durable Aerolyte foam cushions the foot
    • Heel-to-profile with angles midsole improves energy transfer to the ice
    • The stabilizer cap and contoured foam provide the shape that supports the foot and arch. It's this distinct shape that increases stability, reduces shifting & minimizes hot spots.


    When reading through a lot of the posts associated with our products and/or foot "issues", pains, discomforts, etc. I noticed a lot of good terminology being tossed into the mix. Of this, I can let you know that some of the most common things our products help with include Plantar Faciitis, bone/heel spurs, bunions, calluses, and Haglund's deformity. 


    These will be sized in the same lettering system that we currently use with Yellow and our other products.


    Don't hesitate to reach out with any questions on the thread or in messages!

  10. Before I begin, disclaimer: I work for Superfeet. With that said, I'm not trying to sell you a pair, just attempting to give you some more knowledge on the product.

    As you know already, the Speedplate is a full length moldable product, while the Yellow Superfeet are not moldable and are built on a 3/4 length cap supporting the rearfoot. The reason we do this is because if you can stabilize the heel in a skate, you can keep the rest of the foot in place. When it's not moving around, not only can you get a more powerful stride because a pronating foot shortens stride length, but you can also reduce the risk of stuff like blisters, cramping, bunions, Haglund's deformity, etc. Also, Superfeet are designed to be trimmed in the front and potentially on the sides of the toebox so that it can be compatible with your foot in your skate, regardless of what model you're tossing it into. If something like the Yellow is feeling too high under your foot, give the Carbon a shot - it's a model that's found success in hockey skates although it wasn't originally designed for them specifically, like the Yellow was. I won't speak to my experience on the Speedplate, as everyone's foot is different and will react differently to different products. If you're considering giving Superfeet a shot, just know that all the products have a 60 Day Comfort Guarantee, so if it doesn't meet your expectations in the first two months or less, take it back to the shop or give our offices a call.

    PHEW is Proclaimed Hockey Equipment Whores, a group similar to this on Facebook.

    Hope this helps! Feel free to DM me if you'd like.

    You wore Green's in MX3's?! Never heard of someone getting a pair of Green's into a skate. How did it work out?

    Speed Plates are amazing IMO. I found someone on PHEW that had a pair brand new and he sold them to me for $35 shipped. Baked them in my home over @ 200 degrees until the ink disappeared then threw them in my MX3's and stood for about 1 minute or so. It molds to every inch of your arch and toes...fits like a glove afterwards on the bottom of your foot. I also got the POWERFOOT inserts to reduce the negative space in the toebox and now have the most comfortable skate I've ever worn and every movement my foot makes is directly transmitted to the ice.

    I was previously on Superfeet Greens and also Yellows in the same MX3's but without the PF inserts. I can only imagine every top Bauer skate going forward will have the Speed Plate,,,it's definitely that good.

  11. We've actually tried a lot of things - Superfeet Yellows, Black, SIDAS/Graf Conformable, SOLE Thin Sport, and Shock Doctors. Barring going the full orthotic path, the Superfeet had the best stiffness in the arch, but the SIDAS had the best fit. We're hoping the Speed Plate will be the best of both worlds.

    I work for Superfeet. Feel free to shoot me a DM with any questions about our products or your cousin's ailment.

    How bout custom Superfeet? You'd get the stiffness of Superfeet and the fit of Sidas.

    There currently isn't a model of Superfeet customs that are compatible with a skate.

    the yellow super feet i have do have stiffness in the arch, the yellow plastic pice on the bottom runs from the heel past the arch to the ball of your foot its the same plastic piece.

    The idea behind the cap (yellow plastic piece) to help stabilize the heel because if you limit how much the heel moves, that keeps the arch in a neutral position.

  12. As posted above, they won't release outside of the 1X until next year because of compatibility with other model skates. Pre-mold, they are higher and target the middle of your foot and fit that area more than the apex of the arch which is located just after your heel, whereas Superfeet fit the rear section of your foot more. Pick up a pair when trying them on and compare for yourself!
