When it impedes movement/mobility enough that it controls you, not you controlling the skate.

I'm depressed about it and I'm using my old skates until they die while these brand new NXG"s sit on my shelf and collect dust. Eventually I will be forced to use them and I'll probably have to wear three pairs of socks like I do with my S17's.
Take a look at Stable 26 socks. Several others have liked it for the heel lock properties it supposedly gives.
