Anyway, when I play in the XVs they still hurt pretty bad. This is when I tie them as tight as possible. If I tie them a little looser its not so bad, but then I have a worse feel for the ice under me.

Do I just need to find a happy medium between how tight I tie my skates?
Is it the entire skates or just certain pressure points that seem to cause you pain?
