The Adrenaline POWERFOOT Performance Insert is the newest innovation in skate technology. Simply installed to the underside of the toe cap, the insert stabilizes the toes and enhances skate performance – more explosive starts, stronger crossovers and more efficient stride!
More Explosive Starts
More Efficient Stride
What elite players are saying about the Adrenaline POWERFOOT Performance Insert
“I really, really like it! It gives me comfort and also stability. I feel like a stronger skater.”
Ruslan Fedotenko (Tampa Bay, NY Rangers, Philadelphia Flyers)
“I like it! More stability in the skate. Feels more comfortable.“
Milan Michalek (Ottawa Senators)
“I love the product! It’s really comfortable. It’s really good with tight turns. Great for the feet.“
Tomas Kundratek (Washington Capitals)
“Better foot contact with the skate. Better short turns and stability. Less tension on underside of feet.“
Paul Gagné (NHL Trainer and Posturologist)
Without the POWERFOOT Performance Insert:
Excessive toe movement
Inefficient leverage and lateral stability
Reduced energy transfer and power
More likely to aggravate bone spurs & plantar fasciitis
* NOTE: Elite skaters tested and evaluated the insert based on the following:
0 = much worse with insert, 5 = no difference with insert, 10 = much better with insert. All test elements (Starts, Speed, Stops, Crossovers, Backwards Skating, Comfort) were rated over 5 on 10 meaning they were all better with the insert compared to without it.
Starts/Explosiveness Skate Ramp Test
Testers skated on a hockey treadmill with and without the inserts. The # of strides taken in a 20 second period were counted under both scenarios. On average, skaters took 40.7 strides without the inserts and 38.7 strides with the inserts. This equals a 4.9% reduction in the # of strides required to go the same distance i.e., more explosiveness per stride = less strides.
The toes are extremely important in generating power and maintaining balance while skating. By stabilizing the toes within the toe cap, the toes essentially become more effective. Starts are more explosive, toe snaps at the end of the stride are more efficient, and balance during crossovers is maximized.
Yes, all major brands including Bauer, Reebok, CCM, Easton, Mission, ITECH and Graf. The inserts also work well in skates such as the Easton Mako that have a relatively low toe cap profile (less empty space).
JR-sized inserts are for skates Y13-JR5.5. SR-sized inserts are for skates SR6-12.5. The JR and SR-sized inserts each come with a thin shim in order to adjust the thickness of the insert, if desired, in order to give a tighter fit.
Loosen the laces and pull the skate tongue up and out as far as possible. Ensure that the underside of the toe cap is dry and free of any loose material. Carefully remove the paper backing from the adhesive on the back of the insert. Position the insert to underside of toe cap and press firmly into place. The insert’s adhesive works best when both the skate and insert are at room temperature. See Sizing & Installation Manual or YouTube Video for complete instructions.
Because the POWERFOOT inserts fill up the excess negative space on top of your toes, your skates will be more responsive. Goalies have told us they have “more power in their lateral pushes” and “less movement of the feet when they’re in and out of the butterfly”. The inserts are also make the skates feel “very comfortable”.
In order to prolong the life of your insert, dry out your skates after each use. While drying, maximize air circulation within your skate by loosening your skate laces and pulling the tongues up and out as far as possible. To clean the insert, use a soft cloth soaked in warm water and a mild detergent followed by air dry.
