Did this start when you swapped to waxed laces? If so it may be that the waxed laces are keeping the laces tight over the front of your feet where the traditional laces would slack off slightly as you skated. Just a thought.
I loosened the laces above the toes even more last night and felt better. Gonna roll with this tactic for awhile and if it changes I will switch from waxed laces to regular.
