Any info would be appreciated. Thanks!
To add to other great advice. Some models have to be baked (Bauer One90 for example). The 892 Tack isn't one of them. However if you just bought them and they are killing you or giving you blisters. Baking would be a good idea. Don't do it yourself. I've read stories of people putting their skates in their oven and ruining them.

Some people say it shortens the life of the skate. I don't really buy that. I've had skates baked and went on to use them for 5+ years.
