What you CAN do is pick up an aftermarket footbed and maybe even a heel lift. Custom footbeds are usually thicker than the POS footbeds found in most skates so they'd take up any extra volume. Plus they actually give you some support. A heel lift would move your foot up and forward in the boot and get rid of any heel slipping. If your local hockey shop doesn't have them, try a ski shop that does custom boot fittings or even a running store.


Nice work....maybe a "Supereet Insole." I replaced the worn down ones in my Missions and the new ones filled the skates and made them feel smaller. They have skate specific ones and are built up a little on the heel.
