Even though my feet were flat against the bottom of the boot, the skate was still sideways because upper parts of the boot were bent, and I couldn't fix it. I fixed the problem by getting a new pair of skates.
Like I said, I think a lot had to do with having a bad pair of Missions with a heavy chassis. You get what you pay for. If you have a lower end pair, try investing in skates with a really light chassis, not only will it fix the problem but it will making skating a LOT easier.
I'm thinking about getting a pair of Bauer Vapor XR-Lites.
