Wink Riedell Insoles

Hi again, I'm not sure if Riedell is still using Texon insoles in their boots.
I have rebuilt my Snyder Imperial's that I bought in the early 60's. I have replaced the cushion's, pivot pins and cups, wheels, bearings and the last thing I have replaced are the original fiber insoles, which covers the plate screw heads. My Riedell boots are a model 192. These boots are in really great shape.
There was small indents in the old worn insoles where the mounting screws are. If anyone wants to replace their's, they are Texon 437. Order from Feet Relief.com, or just goggle Texon 437 insoles. If your skates have these, order them by boot size, NOT plate size. I ordered a size men's 11-11 1/2 and had to cut them down on my scroll saw. My boot is 10 1/2.
Other boot brands might also use these.

Might I suggest upgrading to any Dr Scholls inner sole or even better, one made specifically for sports, a real inner sole supports the arch, surrounds the heel and actually gives better balance to the user.
A custom orthotic is actually what you want to use but even a cheap Dr Scholls is an improvement.

Smile Insoles?

I'm not sure if your plates just have a screw from the bottom or if you have the plate mounting bolts that go through the boot? These insoles were not installed for comfort. They are used to provide a smooth bottom over the mounting screw heads. They are actually a fiber board, not a sponge cushion. If you wanted to put another pair of cushions over them, that would probable work fine providing you have the room and ok fit.

I have tried the gel insoles. They are comfortable but I lose a little control with my foot moving around.

I've tried several insoles from Superfeet, Sole, etc. My favorite shoes are New Balance sneakers, so I just started using those insoles in my skates. Works perfect for me.

The Texon looks nice from a rigidity standpoint, so maybe Texon under your favorite insole as an option.
