I left before you posted this. How would they do that? After putting on the Reebok skates today I definitely believe that the mid skate width and arch is the problem. Prior to wearing those I honestly thought that skates were meant to squeeze the sides of the mid foot and arch. Clearly that is not the case, but I don't know how they can really make the skate that much wider in that area.
I'll see what the bake today does for them and I'll get back to you as to wether it's better or just different.
