Your foot should stand straight on the blade--not too inside and not too outside.
However, many mass-production Ice Hockey Insoles, Ski Insoles, and shoe Insoles have too wide a heel cup for figure skates. This is why we developed Feetech® Skating Insoles that can be cut and shaped based on your boots width.
Hockey insoles has bigger heel cup design which makes skaters heel bones movers inside of skates. Also, it has wider width design which makes conflict skating boots walls. Using hockey insoles in figure skating boots create over corrections of pronations inside of your skating boots.
Ski insoles are usually designed wider than Hockey insoles. Skaters complained about blisters between insole and inside of boots wall. Over corrections of pronations and sitting on the blade with supinated heel bone positions will create another ankle, knee and hip injuries.
As mentioned in Ski insole issues section, in figure skating movement, supination correction needs to be very careful. Supination test on the floor with barefoot. Many skaters foot supinate on the floor, but doesn't happen supination on the blade with skating boots conditions. Many supinators pronate more with boots and blade to get counter balance on the ice.
Also, running shoes material is usually made by hard plastic material or thicker materials. Many skaters complained pains using those materials, and rather than enjoying using the functions of insoles, it is actually creating more inflammations and pains. Why? It is because those insoles are designed to stand up on the floor without leaning positions, and also bigger contact surface than figure skating blade to the standing surface ( floor / ice).
