I imagine you're tigtening the laces so they're nice and snug and then pumping in air and crowding your instep. The laces stretch a little as you skate so that's why the pain lessens.

If the pain were in the ball, arch or heel I'd say re-bake the skate.
I've never thought of that. THough right now I'm suffereing something horrible because I took a really hard slapshot off the top of my foot.

I think I may have to amputate it. (I'm really not serious about amputating it, but it hurts something terrible.)

I may have to invest in some lacebite pads considering I'm on the ice 3-4 times a week...maybe more if I play for 2 teams.
