So I finally got to the LHS and they fitted me with a Supreme, I was a little worried because they didn't have me try the Reebok which is what I thought I was gonna walk out with, but... Well I wish I could say it's all good, but I just wimped out and didn't push to try the Reebok... The lacebite with the Supreme is pretty bad from trying it in the store, but they assure me I can come back to put some HD foam there...
Anyway here's the kicker: I'm walking out with 4.5 skates! Lol I had 6.5 player skates that I self-fitted, so there you go. What's been said about wearing the wrong size without realizing it is definitely a very valid warning!
Also, I previously had yellow Superfeet, which were better than the factory insole but still felt a tad off. Tried black Superfeet and at least in the store it felt a little better than the yellows. So if you're putting in insoles ask if you can test them out first to see which works better (just stand on it in your socks).
