have your skates always been like that from day one?

it sounds like the boot has just broken down and isn't offering any support. the 500 is an entry-level skate and not very stiff at all.

i wouldn't get the Bauers, the XR-lites are also a price-point skate and wouldn't offer a tremendous amount of support or durability.

i would recommend purchasing a higher end skate, which will support your ankle much better, and last alot longer than a cheaper skate. if the price of a new higher-end skate is a bit too much, you can get really great deals on last year's models on clearance. it's not uncommon for last year's top of the line $450+ skate to be on sale for $200 or less. CCM, Mission, and Tour usually have the best deals on discontinued skates.
