I'm a noob skater too, and I can tell that there are a lot of new muscles in my feet, and it's almost like my foot is firming itself up with all this new exercise it's doing. I've actually gone down half a size in my skate in two months because my feet are so different! Now I'm doing a lot of experiments with tying and footbeds (tried shock doctors, but I think I'll go back to the regular footbed), and readjusting as necessary. I find that I like to make the skates loose at first, and then tie it tighter once all the blood gets flowing. If I tie it too tight from the get-go, then my feet ache all over. But if I let my feet warm up first, then no problems.

Keep up the good work and keep trying new things with your skates to see what works best for you.
