I even went down to a size 10 on my newest skates (Vapor 40's) which is a half size smaller than the anything I've had for the last 10+ years...no pain...and the haglunds don't seem to have grown much for the past number of years.
Do you think I should go get these boots punched? I was once told its possible to have a removal surgery done on the haglunds, is that true?
That is interesting info, mine is on one heel and small. lately it has not bothered me and i just kncoked out that spot anyway so i should be okay.
i need to get on the ice soon and check it out though.
I am in my break period at the end of summer in between the summer league and winter league so I've not skated in 10 days. I am getting the DTs already.
