One different that waxed laces will do is they will help to keep your skates tighter. When you have normal laces and you pull out to tighten the skate they will loosen a bit when you switch to tighten higher up in the skate. Waxed laces because of their texture have a tendency to bite a little bit more because of the wax.

That would be the only thing that I can think of that might change the fit or feel you are talking about.
