Feet pain while skating

Lately I have been having foot pain with both feet after i skate for 15 minutes and then it goes away and is fine for the rest of the time I skate. Goes away probably 10-15 minutes later and I have worn 3 different pairs of skates but all produce the same pain. Anyone else have this or know what the cause is.

Maybe your arch support? do you use insoles at all?

Did you have your skates baked? Mine got way more comfortable after. Better support too.

Its just the lactic acid building in the muscles of your ankles. It will go away if you do more skating or do exercises to strengthen the muscle in your ankles
I used to have the same problem and Ive found that doing more skating and doing daily exercises to strengthen my ankles helps.

Is it an aching on the bottom of your foot? Thats what I've got, and I'm fairly certain I just need to find some super wide skates.

I have the exact same issue. It happens to me when I'm snowboarding too. The pain lasts for about 20 min, then it gets a bit better and it's bearable. It REALLY hurt last year when I was out west on my snowboard trip and acted up most on tree runs. I think that I might have flat arches in my foot, so I might try some insoles if it becomes a problem.

I'd really love it if someone knows what this is...

I have that problem. Started playing roller hockey recently with rented Bauer's and it felt like the bones in my feet were slowly breaking. I bought some E sized Mission skates and while better, I still get the pain. Already had them baked once. It would be nice to know it was just lactic acid, because I don't have the money for another pair of skates after 3 weeks of use.

Sounds like your feet are adjusting to a difference in shape from what they're used to. Do your shoes have much arch support (note that cushioning is NOT support)? Does the arch support in your shoe hit in a different place then it does in your skate?

I'm pretty sure your skates fit fine since the pain goes away. If they don't, it sticks around. Been there done that.

If I had to bet, I would guess that your shoes are either the wrong size or don't offer a lot of support, and the pain is your feet adjusting to properly sized and supportive skates.

Wait, your skates don't have insoles? Not even the cheap foam ones? That's your problem.
