Blister question

Hey guys.

I've had these skates since October, and ever since I've had them, they've caused nasty blisters on both of my heels. The skates are great - worn and fit perfect (which can be a chore for girls), but the achelles protector jutts out at the back, causing lovely blisters on the back, inside of each heel when I skate for more than about 1.5 hours.

I've tried liquid bandages. I've tried just regular bandaids. I've tried liquid bandages + regular bandaids. I've tried all of those with and without socks. The bandaids just get moved as I skate by the small amount of friction my feet create in the skates. I've tried two pair but that was just uncomfortable. And I've tried letting them rest long enough to grow calluses, but the calluses rub off too (which if you've never had it happen, feels especially lovely).

Any advice?
