To the OP: when you do get new skates, make sure you're fitted right. But if your skates are flexing enough for somebody else to notice, you quite certainly need more support. If you're playing on any sort of regular basis, you should have mid level skates at least. Cheap skates are cheap for a reason.
I agree but at his size if he goes too high end they could be end up way to stiff. He could get a nice pair of mid range skates that suit him better than going out and paying top dollar for high end skates.
