I have a hell of a time a getting skate to fit on my left foot. They fit on my right but the left i have to sharpen the end of a teaspoon like a woodworking lathe chisel and i manually scoop out where the big toe is so my toe isn't crammed in my left skate.
It works but is risky if you overdo it because it makes the toe cap too thin there and you need to know how to sharpen and the then use a stone to take the burr off of the end properly so the teaspoon works for this.
