Skates should fit, the hollow shouldn't be the problem.
I feel like the skates *do* fit, not sure if I have weak ankles, 16 years of muscle memory of turning them inwards too often, etc. I get the concern over a crutch in the sense of learning to do something incorrectly can be harmful in the long run, but I'm thinking being forced into doing something mechanically correct could at least retrain muscle memory so I eventually don't need the crutch.

I think I'm going to try 5/8" and ankle support at a free skate this weekend, will let post about how it goes, as I'm sure you're all holding your breath
