Feet hurt like hell in my skates

Hey guys,

Just a quick question. I've been skating at least once a week for the past few months, and my feet have been killing me everytime. Usually I can bear through it, but I have to take frequent breaks to rest my feet. I notice when I tie my skates tight, I skate a hell of a lot better, but that's when my feet hurt. When I loosen up the skates, it alleviates the pressure, but then my heel is loose and that's not good at all.

The pain is concentrated at the arch of my feet and the sides of my feet in the back. I have an E width CCM Vapor 04 skate, and superfeet insoles (I have plantar fascitis). I have a feeling the skate isn't wide enough for my feet to completely flatten out. Will baking my skates help with this? I've been skating long enough I think to break in my skates, but I haven't always tied them tight enough.

I really don't want to buy new skates if I don't have to.
