Question is, do you feel it's effecting your skating?
Most people new to skating just assume their skates should be super tight. That's not really the case. They have to be tight enough to offer the proper support while allowing for the proper flex.
You'll probably need to tighten them a few times over the course of a session. As your foot sweats, the boot warms up. That allows your foot to slide further back. Thus making the skate seem too loose. This is heightened during the skates break in period.
