That is very possible. Baking the skate won't help much because most skates don't mold as much up at the ankles. They're not made that way. Also, if you try and tie the ankles especially tight it may damage the eyelets.

If they are too loose, you can try "baking" them with a heat gun or hairdryer. Tie them on as tight as you need, then put the hairdryer (or heat gun on lower setting) on your ankles.

If they are too tight, then punching would work better than baking.
