I just got fitted for new skates, and went from RBK skates to Graf. The RBK skates were for a much shallower foot/arch. The eyelets on the RBK skates were much lower, and the laces bowed out to compensate for the arch of my foot. If I tightened those laces at all, it crushed my arch and left a lot of pain.

On the Graf's they're a much deeper fit, the eyelets are higher, and the laces don't bow outward much at all. I can really tighten them everywhere without causing any pain. Proper fitting makes a huge difference.
