What I usualy do is boil some water in a ketel. Flip my skate upside down and let the steam go in the skate for a bit(20-60 seconds I guess...) then I put the skates on and walk arround with them, crouch, etc.. Reapeat a few times if needed.

Also I dont know how that part of the skate is called...but on the back the "lip" that's supposed to protect the achilles tendon. I break it (bend backwards so it's not stiff anymore). Cause on new skates that's what hampers my skating abilities the most. When it's stiff I cant push with the tip of my feet like I want to.
