Where to buy mismatched skates?
 
Are there equipment suppliers that will sell a set of mismatched skates? Never had this problem when I was younger but now I find that my right foot is almost a half-size larger than my left. If I buy standard skates and my right foot is comfortable, then the left foot will be flopping around. Or if I fit the skate to the left foot, then my toes are crunched and painful on the right foot. I need to buy skates with the right skate a half-size larger than the left.

Get fitted for custom skates, or on prostockhockeygear.com you can order skates with different sizes and widths without having a custom fitting

Perhaps on your next pair of skates, have them sized for your smaller foot, then stretch them for the larger one? This is standard practise at my store and from what I understand, at some other places too.

I think every store sells them, they just cost twice as much... :D

You can get the toe cemented in on your smaller foot. Not exactly what you want but if you don't want to spend a ton go that route.

Can you explain or expand on that?

Thanks

I'm assuming he means something along the lines of adding some kind of epoxy to the inside of the boot, filling up the very tip of the toe box, cutting down the length of the inside of the boot.

Exactly, if you go to a pro cut and tell them they messure your foot and fill it in with a cementish like thing but it's light. It just makes it so your skate isn't wobbling around on your feet and you won't look like a clown. Not the best way to get it done but if your just playing for fun and don't want to spend alot of money deffinatly an option.

Pretty sure you don't want to skate around with 2 different length blades/holders... And your foot isn't supposed to touch the front of the toe cap... If your foot is differnt mostly in toe length, you just need a boot that fits your heel and forefoot and locks em in

Some hockey stores will do a power stretch, heats the boot and stretches it half a size. Just have them stretch one.
