I'm not going to say they are the answer for everyone, but pain is from a skate that doesn't fit properly IMO. Graf does have or at least had more fit profiles than any other company. The trick is finding the right skate as not all dealers are knowledgeable.
I skated all throughout college in severe pain. Micron Mega 10-90s in a B width which were too narrow. and horrible lace bite. Then Air 90s in a C width(just lace bite). I really didn't even have fun playing as I was in so much pain. I took 15 years off, tried a few skates, finally got into a Graf G3 narrow. Baked one time and I have not felt even the slightest pain ever. It's been unbelievable. Sometimes it means buying a few pair and selling them used for a huge loss before you find the right skate, but what is pain free skating worth to you?
