I walked around in my skates quite a bit Monday and Tuesday night and it seemed to help quite a bit. Had the skates baked yesterday and damn, what a difference, they felt pretty damn awesome. Skated tonight and overall they felt pretty damn good. I did get some raw skin on the arch of my right foot which seems like a really weird spot to me. I'm used to a forward pitch on my old skates, I need to have this done on these. I felt like I was on my heels too much.
I started wearing skate socks with these new skates but I'm not sure if it's such a good idea. They make your foot super slick so whatever tiny bit of movement your foot can move in a skate, I think it might... maybe that's why I got this skin rubbed raw.
Overall, very impressed.. hopefully this one issue I'm having sorts itself out with a little more break in time.
