Skates Issue

Hey everyone I'm new here and I just had an issue that hopefully someone here will be able to help me solve.

So recently I've started to notice 2 main problem with my skates, one of which being that now for some reason my left ankle feels bruised after every game. This only happens with my left ankle and It's only started to happen to me very recently (at least a month ago). The second problem is that my right skate always becomes very loose even when I tighten it to the the absolute point when my foot can barely breathe. Just for some reason it doesn't get very tight or not as tight as my left skate and again this problem has only come into effect very recently. I've tried the waxed laces and regular laces but still the problem arises so I don't know if this is a problem with my skates or I'm just doing something wrong. The skates I use are the Bauer Supreme One.6 and I've been skating for about a year and a half now, I play beer league and in a high div so not so heavy calibre and I usually play 1-2 per week. Sorry if a topic like this was already discussed I tried searching but couldn't find anything. Thank you.

Ankle where? Bone? Underneath the bone? Be more specific.

Loose where? Heel? Ankles?

Left foot, right ankle just a little to right of the actual bone.

Loose in the middle of the skate like the top of my foot (just about where it begins to arc)

For the ankle, I suggest a rebake and use hands to push in that area when the skate is laced up hot on your foot.

I still don't understand the looseness,do you think that using an insole that takes up some volume would help?

I was actually having that problem with looseness with my last pair of skates. My left one never felt quite tight but the skates also fit horribly and were way too narrow for my feet. Are you using waxed laces or unwaxed? That sometimes can create a difference.

Sorry about that. The skates themselves may be too shallow of a fit for your ankle. Are your ankles getting cut or are they just sore with a bruised feeling?

Depth of the boot, the instep, the metatarsal area.

Maybe this will help if you need new skates.
