Sometimes you just need some extra padding in your skates to perform at your highest level. Everyone's feet are different, and sometimes even the most moldable skates can't hone in the fit that you want. That's where A&R comes in with their gel pad inserts. The achilles heel gel pads are designed to fit in the heel lock of the skate and provide comfort, protection, and a custom fit so that you can feel confident every time you lace them up to hit the ice. Afterall, they're your skates, and they should do nothing but benefit you and cater to your body.
