skate question

Im getting new skates for christmas and I decided to give my old ones to my friend who wants to learn how to skate. They are Vapor x30s and are a size 7.5 EE. I have a wider foot then he does, and the skates have been baked to my foot. Can he re-bake them to fit into his narrower foot? Im pretty sure an EE is to wide also, can baking them help make them narrower?

Unfortunately, no, baking them won't make them any narrower.

Nope, the difference will be very minimal. If you had a pair of U+12s or Cls on the other hand...

Like AIREAYE mentioned, baking the skates will not make them more narrow. But, you might as well have your friend try them out; they may fit his foot better than you think. Also, they might be more comfortable than having your buddy deal with rental skates. I'm not saying that ill fitting skates are the best thing for your friend, but if he decides to get serious about skating and possibly playing, he can always buy skates that fit when he's ready to.
