using waxed laces will make your skates as tight as you need them to be (depending on how much you pull on the laces to tighten them)

if i tighten as hard as i can my foot hurts, and i'm wearing decently big skates for my foot size

anyway, why would you want them tight around the ankle anyway? isn't it more important to have them tight below the ankle to keep the heel in place.

i've started leaving my top skate eyelet empty. i find it gives me better ankle flexibility, especially for cross overs. i can roll the ankle way better with the inner foot, giving me more speed and power.
