New skates

Just got CCM u+ pros the skates fit fine can fit about a pencil behind the heel with toes all the way forward but the toe caps seem to have a lot of space on these and was wondering if anyone knows what I can do about this. Had one95 fit great these seems to be taking longer to break in, playing jr college hockey this year and hope to play d3 next season or the season after

I didn't want to start a new thread but i was wondering what you guys thought would be the better buy. I'm taking a hockey for a PE class in college and wanted to buy some skates because the rentals suck.

i was thinking about either the Bauer X15s or the Reebok 4ks. what can you tell me about the positives and negatives of each skate? they are both the same price $120

thanks!!!!

Assuming the skate fits right everywhere else, why do you care that there is extra room in the toe cap?

I actually have this problem too. Well, I consider it a problem because it leaves room for my toes rise up as I'm skating and this throws me off balance sometimes...

If the rest of your foot is properly locked in, I don't think that should be happening with your toes.

Happens both when the rest of my feet are "locked in" properly and when they're too tight, so... :\
