I used to use Superfeet, the yellow hockey ones and then the newer yellow hockey carbon version. They worked pretty well, definitely an upgrade over the stock insoles, but they were lacking some arch structure and I would still get some foot soreness every few games.
Decided on the Speed Plates because they were supposed to mold to your foot and then be a more rigid support. Even though the Superfeet (especially the newer hockey carbon model) have a rigid piece through the arch area, it's really still part of the heel cup support more than anything
The guy at PHL baked them for me in store, but it was right at closing and he kind of rushed the process. There were a couple wrinkles along the inside edges that I sort of felt, but may have just been cosmetic. Decided to re-bake them at home.
That process was super easy, follow the directions on the package, the black lines on the arch disappear when they are at the right temp, slip them in your skates, lace them up, 5 minutes sitting, 10 minutes standing (only got 5 and 5 in store) and you're good.
Fit and feel
When they are cooled, they just feel like a hard plastic, so more structure than Superfeet, but didn't seem like it would be all that comfortable. The material on top is a pretty standard fabric with some grip lines at the toes. But it turns out that works pretty well when the overall structure is molded to your foot. I haven't had any arch pain or noticed any feeling like I wished I had some extra cushion.
Nothing scientific in terms of energy transfer in pushes and all that, just very satisfied with the product. There's a 2.0 version with what looks like upgraded materials on top and bottom (last pic), will probably look into those when I figure out my next set of skates.
