Apparently my feet/ankles r flexing too much.
If I get mid-level skates Im told that they simply provide more support and someone else has told me that someone my size doesn't need this.
The higher grade skates have more support and are lighter.
What do you ppl think? Would you expect improvement for someone like me if I upgraded?
Have to keep in mind that higher grades stakes are a lot more stiff and that could actually hurt your skating as well.
