pretty unlikely it's a blade coming through the sole.

the actual reason for the pain might be an injured muscle. not torn or anything, but it could be a badly untreated bruise/strain/adhesion. there are a lot of muscles in the foot. not all of them are engaged/shortened unless the foot is in a specific position under specific stress. the skate might cause that particular muscle to shorten past its ability, or it might provide extra stress on another muscle through an insertion point/ligament.

long story short, that muscle is in need of deep tissue massage to relieve the adhesion.

i had a similar experience when i had to rent an extra narrow skate once. i had foot pain for weeks afterwards using my own skates that were comfortable before. it went away when i did the above therapy with a golf ball.
