Bauer has introduced their revolutionary Speed Plate foot inserts which are designed to custom fit to each skater's foot shape. Through a heating process similar to the one used when you "bake" your skates, Bauer has been able to provide a completely customizable footbed. You might think to yourself, "Why so much effort for a foot bed?". The answer is easy. The footbed is as much of a part of the skate as the steel, outsole, and tongue are. Having a footbed that is customized completely for your foot helps promote better balance and stability, saving you energy with every stride!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from improved my skating a lot! I am someone with a very high arch(weird foot) and i never seemed to find right insole for myself. Bauer speedplate was a lifechanger in that regard. I put them into oven and they molded right into my footshape. First time in life life i could say that my foot stayed straight in my skate. Sole was really connected to the bottom of skate now. Why i am giving it 4 out of 5 is bad durability. I have now used them for 4 months(i go on ice 3 times per week) and they are braking down - both have cracks now in heel area. I have glued those cracks together now and i can still use them but i think i soon have to order new ones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Far, so Good! My son wears Nexus 7EE, so after doing some research and listening to others I ordered a full size up, (8) speed plate and they fit like a glove. Not sure why the EE makes a difference in length so it makes me question whether ordering the same size would work for any skate. My advice is to order a size up and trim if necessary. My son has very flat feet and large Bauer Bumps on the inner side of each foot at the arch. He said his feet feel better already. After pulling out the old ones and comparing, you realize what junk the insoles are that come with the skates. I really hope these last and don't crack as others have said.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Balance Improved! I wore my Vapor's for 6 months on standard footbeds, and having flat feet, I suffered during a hard skating sesh. I finally decided to try the speed plates, and I noticed an IMMEDIATE difference in the fit just during the cool off process. Once I hit the ice, I found myself gripping my edges harder & sturdier in a backwards stride and my overall balance was much better than before. Moreover, the skate just has a more natural feel around and under my foot. No more pain. I highly recommend for any skater of any experience level.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The speed plate is great!!! They really do work wonders! These things really do improve acceleration and balance. I feel like my game increased significantly using the speed plate. I used super feet insoles prior to the speed plate, but still had some arch discomfort and didn't really notice my improvement. Get the speed plates, so much better than super feet or standard insoles. All pain gone, and noticeable increase in acceleration and balance. If they had these when I was growing up I probably would be wearing a Stanley Cup ring right now.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Like them, but they break easy. Have had my 1X skates for 6 months, and my second pair of speed plates just cracked. I wish they lasted longer as they feel great on the feet. I skate everyday, and unfortunately they have not lasted at all for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for high arches I have really high foot arches and was looking for a little more support. Im on the ice roughly 3 times a week and was having a lot of foot pain due to the lack of arch support. Have using these for the past few weeks, the pain is gone. If you’re looking for more support, these absolutely work. As for the claims that these will help improve your skating, I don’t really notice it. I don’t notice an improvement in my skating that would warrant spending the $99 or $49 that these go for. The relief from the pain I was experiencing make them absolutely worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from helped my skates feel even better bought these for my nexus 8000 8.5EE. Used the size 9 speed plate and baked my self. set at 175° and took 10 min for the thermo lines to disappear. I really love my nexus and with these it fit my arch and heel even better. I can't say about how long they last but they do feel very comfy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Transformed my skates and my game I put these in my Easton stealth rs skates and transformed them from torture devices to almost as comfortable as a pair of old sneakers. My shifts are longer, my feet don't hurt for days after a game, and most importantly, I'm skating faster.

I know it says these are "Bauer" speed plates, but could I put them in my ccm skates and mold them just the same?

Asked by: Dukes22
We have seen these used in other brand skates, not just Bauer. Thanks!

I know the smallest size is a junior 4, need these for my little guy wearing a size 2 Bauer vapor velocity X, Can these be cut to fit? 

Asked by: Jtf23
The Bauer speed plates comes in size 3 - 12 and are designed to be cut down half a size. You would not be able to cut them down 2 sizes.

I have a relatively flat foot and have constant arch pain from my skates.  I’ve had Bauer Supremes, and now CCM Jetspeed - same arch pain in both.  I’ve tried the Superfeet Carbon and had no success.   Will this insole help with a low arch?

Asked by: Chris34
It is hard to say if this will stop any pain in your feet, but this insole can mold very well to the shape of your foot once it has been heated.

Do the speed plates need to be baked after buying them?

Asked by: Alex19
100% needs to be baked, and bake the skate at the same time, but don't put the insoles in the skate.

How are these in goalie skates?

Asked by: Jflan41
The Speed Plates were designed specifically for player skates. I have not had much feedback from goalies using the Speed Plates. Additionally, Bauer has not yet used them as stock inserts for goalie skates. That said, they should work for goalie skates and provide stability and comfort.
