Thanks for all the suggestions. I have somewhat wide feet (skate is a 9.5 E), so I'm hoping taping from ankle up would suffice? If the boot part is too tight I quickly get shooting pains on the outside part of my foot halfway down (where an avulsion fracture happens for the 5th metatarcel). Makes sense, since that is technically the widest part of my foot.
Re: skate, I had no idea some skates are more 'difficult' than others-how so? I bought it b/c I was told it was really good quality, and they were only $209 (new are like $600?).
Thicker socks makes sense, I will try that. I feel like if it were as easy as 'just keep your ankle straight' I would have already. This has been going on for all 4 weeks of the league.
