Remember that while a skate can expand slightly for you, it cannot contract to a similar degree if it needs to.
Thanks for the advice! His focus on the APX skate is due to the fact that it is the dominant skate amongst his team, so certainly some internal pressure. He had used Bauer skates in the past and developed the 'Bump' which prompted the move to the Reebok skates which fit better. At this point, he is looking for a 'stiffer' boot and one that will last longer than the Reebok's (one season at best).

I will have him try on different skates and see where it goes.

Thanks!
