    Supreme 1S Skates fit?

    Hey Guys its my first time on this forum so if I'm posting on the wrong page please forgive me. So for the last while I keep using the same pair of NikeBauer One95's that I got on consignment that I got from a hockey shop I worked at in Edmonton. After using them for a long time, they started feeling really soft and I always needed to re-tie them multiple times during a skate, so I figured that it was time for a new pair. Since at the time I was very stubborn to staying as a Bauer guy and like getting top of the line equipment (I know its overkill for what I do and way too expensive), I wanted to get the Supreme 1s's since supreme pretty much keeps their boots the same in lines of fit. Anyway I bought a pair last May while living in BC knowing they were really stiff skates. When at the store, the sales associate had me try the old Jet speeds since they were on clearance. To be honest, I really liked them, but knew that I'd be thinking of the Supremes all the time if I got the CCM's. After a few months, I couldn't get fully comfortable in the skates. Usually the way I tie my skates is looser around the bottom of my feet because they ache regardless of how soft the skates are and then I try to tie the ankles up as tight as possible. In these I just can't get the ankle to where I want them and feel like I'm going to slide when I wear them. I almost felt like I'd get tired sooner when wearing the 1S' then when I was just wearing my one95's. I decided to start wearing my old one95's again and I felt like I liked them more than the 1S'. It's been a couple months since then and now my one95's are even softer and worse. I'm considering what to do when it comes to my skates. Currently, I'm living in Southeast Idaho with plans to move to Edmonton in April. My friend in Edmonton has my 1S' from when I visited and has been trying to sell them for me on kijiji, but we haven't been able to get a decent price since I paid 1100 for them after tax. I've heard that CCM has really picked up their game in skates so I've been thinking about trying on a pair of Tacks, but I don't exactly want to be tied up in two expensive pairs of skates. Any recommendations on what I should do? Is there a way to make the supremes fit better or a way to soften them quicker? I've baked them twice already but after the second bake it almost felt worse. One thing I've heard about the supremes thats a problem is the insanely stiff eye-lets. Is getting the tacks worth it since its supposed to not be as stiff and they have normal eye-lets on them? Should I give the 1S' another chance? Is there a way to solve the discomfort? Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Ezeefit Ankle Booties

    I was getting some irritation from a pair of skates where the liner had rolled a bit and the tendon guard assembly was digging into the back of my heel slightly. The skates, over time, were starting to become a bit looser in the heel. I decided to pick up a pair of Ezeefit booties in the thinnest design to give them a try. Here's a pic what they look like: Background: 30 years old / 5’11 / 215lbs / left-handed Men's div B/C and shinny hockey (former minor league rep team player) On ice ~5 hours a week Fit I fit into a pair of M-L or L depending on the cut. I have a 7.5 skate size and anywhere between a 9.5-10.5 shoe size. I have a very high arch and the booties are stretchy enough to fit over this added volume. The booties do stretch a bit over time, but I find they shrink back when you toss them in the washer and then the dryer (which is not recommended by the manufacturer). The booties come in 3 different thicknesses at time of writing. You can customize how much protection or how much volume you're looking to add. 9/10 Protection These protect insanely well against abrasion, rubbing and pressure. If there's something awry in your skate, these might be enough to protect your foot a bit. They provide some protection against shots as they are slighly padded through their design. The thicker models would likely offer more protection. I'm not going to bill them as offering protection against shots, but they do add a layer of padding. For the purpose of their design they protect your foot from irritation and injury. The back seam of the bootie MAY irritate the back of your heel a bit. I noticed it at first, but I think I've gotten used to it and the benefits outweigh the drawbacks. 8.5/10 Weight There's nothing to them. Lightweight and fold up to the size of a small pair of socks in your bag. 10/10 Durability The logos have both worn off from washing, and the red interior has bled a bit onto my hockey skate socks, but they've held up design-wise. No problems with stitching, and I've been using them for upwards of 9 months, rotating two pairs. They do stretch out over use, but they shrink back after a wash and dry. 10/10 Intangibles These also work really well in Cowboy boots or in footwear that just isn't confortable on the heel or ankle. I haven't found any footwear in which they don't work to some degree. Your foot does get warmer, and I recommend that you wear the bootie UNDER your sock to prevent slipping. You can wear it above as well, but it holds in place better under the sock. I find that due to my insanely narrow ankle and heel (custom AA is still even a bit loose for me) these booties help by providing a bit more volume, yet are much more comfortable and adaptable than Stable 26. They also offer full foot booties (like a sock) and toe-box booties (for the toes only) - maybe this would help others who have issues with this area of their skate or footwear. 10/10 Conclusion I love these ankle booties for reducing pressure to the tendon at the top of my ankle and for adding a bit of bulk to my very narrow ankle and heel. They're very protective (when it comes to friction and abrasion) and they are extremely durable. They're washable and they are very economical when compared to something like Stable26 or using pro-wrap for a similar purpose. 47.5/50 - 95/100 = 95%
