I just started getting into practicing skating about a month or so ago and the first time I went I used rentals and had the exact same issue as you. There was basically no stiffness / ankle support to keep them straight up (I am a big guy too so it made the problem even worse). It made it pretty difficult to practice anything other than just gliding, and I'm sure it is bad for your ankles to skate like that. I could barely even walk in them without them folding over. I bought some new stiff skates that fit and they make a huge difference.
