I have to step in and help sort this out... A lot of guys appear to be properly fitted because their skate seems to fit into a boot alright in store but the fitter should know the nature of the boot and the person's foot to make an educated guess on whether or not it will work on ice. The blame here is placed on whoever was doing the fitting.

I've even see this happen in cases of custom skates, talk about a major faux paus. I was at a rival store one time, just checking it out, and saw this happen personally. The employee just wants the damn money, how many hockey shop workers really care about someone else's foot?
