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 ankle gel pads are designed to work with the ankle padding already in the skate to offer you the greatest fit possible and optimized comfort. Too often skate rub uncomfortably on the ankles. These are made to prevent that and keep you thinking about the game instead of that blister being formed on your ankle. Afterall, they're your skates, and they should do nothing but benefit you and cater to your body.
