I've had them baked twice and tried to DIY punch out the skate in the ankle area but neither has really helped. I've been skating in the ccm's for about 3 months, about 3-4 days a week so i would've thought they'd be broken in by now. I don't really want to have to change skates again because the CCM's did fit me the best.Is this a problem that can be fixed? Or has anyone else had this problem and fixed it? Thanks
do you mean the ankle balls on the side of your feet? if so i had this exact problem with my graf G65's. the irritation of the muscles around my ankles got so bad i havent played in 3 weeks. I went to a custon hockey shop to get them stretched and the person was very helpful. we tried various paddings and other supliments in the skate. then they put in a kind of wedge bauer makes under the heal under the superfeet insole. it brought my foot up approx 3/4". as soon as i put them on it was like a giant relief of the pressure. i couldnt beleive it. they cost me $10 and I am pumped up to finally get back on the ice.
