Bad skating technique?

So I just started playing hockey a few months ago and I'm improving with every game I play.

When I skate I use these velcro straps that I wrap around my ankles for extra stability. If I don't have these straps on, I'm fine but I notice my ankles wobble a bit and I don't feel like I have as much control. Even though my skates are as tight as can be and I can feel my ankle locked in place.

I have the Bauer Vapor RX05 roller skates and the boot is fairly stiff. I'm sure the models up would be better, but I'm just starting off.

I'm just wondering if I'm learning bad skating technique by using the straps as sort of a crutch or if I could use stiffer boots or even a combination of both?
