They should bake skates when you buy them. If you're having problems after a few skates, they should be punched or possibly re-baked.
Pros - skates conform to your foot shape (slightly) and are more comfortable
Cons - salesman has to get off his lazy ass and fire up the oven
Personally I had my skates baked and sat in them for 15 minutes until they cooled down. Then I skated twice and had them punched out slightly as I had some arch pain. I skated a couple more times and it still hurt so I had them punched out wider and now they're perfect.
