Heel lock seems to be ok in the CCMs. The fit around the ankles is pretty loose, so much so that I usually have to retighten the top few laces during a game. But I'm thinking that the poor fit at the instep might be causing the top to loosen up as I forward flex?
The pushing out is harder to explain, just that my skates don't tie like I see other people's. When I tie them the boot doesn't seem to enclose properly, like my foot is trying to escape the boot.
Does that make sense?
