such that many people had issues with their feet falling against the narrow edges and not sitting firmly at the bottom, a floating sensation. Obviously that wouldn't have been the case for everyone, but there were observations to that extent.
Regardless, you definitely sound like you have an ill fitting skate. Like I mentioned before, it sounds like Nexus could be your next step or even Supreme.
Thanks again, I'll check out both of those lines when I can find a local store that carries them.
