The whole point of baking your skates is to mold them to your feet. But, it's not just heating them up. You have to put them on while they are still warm so the boot molds to your foot.

If you're sitting down watching TV, throw your skates on. If you do put them in the dryer, put them on as soon as they come out and leave them on laced up snug for about 20-30 minutes. Don't walk around in them during that time. You can damage the boot if you stress it while it's hot.

Just be careful. I'd hate to see you wreck your skates.
