Seems like you had a rough go in those Eastons huh. Don't worry about the standing when baking part, that should be fine unless you were walking around in them. I only ask people to stand when they want a bit extra width or have slight width issues before.
Regarding the rockering, has the steel been ground down a lot?
Otherwise, without any other clue, I would guess that moving from a skate that was too big for you to a properly fitted one in a smaller size is the cause of the rockering. Your foot would've been used to a larger boot/holder/steel and your centre of weight would've been off. Moving to a proper size shifts that balance. Let yourself get used to the skate first, it takes a while for some.
Heel bone? As in your calcaneus?
