For me, at least, bottom line is lace all the way up for now.... YMMV...
You might find that skating with looser skates will take you some getting used to. Ive always heard that some of the best hockey players in history didnt lace their skates really tightly.
Im with you though, I still prefer my skates to be really snug.
