Customized Orthotic Skates

Enjoy Customized Skates & Orthotics in your hockey or figure skates for more support and shock absorption, while giving you a better feel for the ice.

Orthotics for your skates can help with a wide range of issues from past knee injuries and more, to overall comfort. If you experience pain when you skate, or have difficulty with power, control or speed while on the ice rink talk to our Podiatrist's at your next appointment and ask your foot doctor if customized hockey skates would be beneficial for you.

Figure skating and hockey both require a significant amount of training on and off the ice. Orthotics can give these athletes a greater chance at reducing the quantity and severity of their injuries. A custom made orthotic that is moulded to the shape of the foot can have numerous benefits versus an over-the-counter insole. 

Make Your Feet More Comfortable

Applying custom hockey skates to your workouts and your overall athletic lifestyle will not only reduce the risk of injury, but make your feet more comfortable. 

They intent is to help to properly shift your weight and pressure off areas that aren’t designed to have rigorous pressure. Custom Skates help align and create stability for you while you are performing in the rink and on the ice.  

Custom Hockey Skates

Custom hockey skates  made for your arch type help eliminate collapsing of your arch and ankle and by preventing this collapse, the orthotics will also make your push off more powerful and improve your stride as it will give your foot better contact with the ice and, thus giving you much better and needed control.  Without orthotics, some of the power from your push would be lost through the arch, but with orthotics the full power of each push is transferred directly to the ice. In addition, skaters who experience difficulty maintaining power and control when crossing over or with tight turns may benefit greatly from custom orthotics.
