Should I be afraid that these are not the right skates? From my memory this always happened to me with new skates. I am thinking I might bake them again and wear socks next time until they are more broken in.
Any advice/thoughts are appreciated.
I know its a bit of personal preference, but I would always wear socks. In the old days you could get away with not wearing socks because the skates were pretty flexible - they would give a bit at points of contact. New skates however are pretty rigid. Your feet WILL move a bit, and since the boot itself ISN'T moving, you can get blisters pretty easily.
Where are the blisters? Toes? Heel?
