    So I see 3 issues here: Leg discreptancy: roughly 2 options you can play with inside the boot heel lifts : basically place a piece of plastic under your smaller leg's footbed, drawback is that this will take away volume (something you've already lost quite a bit using superfeet, and I'm not even talking about orthopedics. But they are easy to setup and play around with. Definitely worth it for a first impression. This is something the ski shop can definitely help you with outside the boot heel (and toe) lifts : piece of plastic will be placed between frame and boot, just be sure the piece of plastic is the exact size, you don't want to deal with it after it's done. Feet shape and support : orthopedics footbed are also something I'd recommend. That or Sidas custom, something your ski shop should probably have around Overall Skate balance. This is even more complicated than heel lifts as you need to play around with alignment, (meaning probably drilling new holes). This is a pain with hockey skates. Holder mounting system is so archaic in that regards. It is so essential for proper skating though.Good luck, There are tons of subject covering your issues you may want to read the following: http://www.modsquadhockey.com/forums/index.php/topic/30438-leg-length-discrepency-important-read-for-back-pain/ http://www.modsquadhockey.com/forums/index.php/topic/39240-leg-length-discrepancy/ http://www.modsquadhockey.com/forums/index.php/topic/64143-lift-on-skate/ good image of heel lifts at the end : http://www.modsquadhockey.com/forums/index.php/topic/63143-increase-foward-pitch/ http://www.modsquadhockey.com/forums/index.php/topic/59970-how-to-position-the-chassis-under-the-boot/

    Well if he hasn't, he should find out for sure whether they are in good condition or better.

    Nice pic that last one. Some of you guys are the lucky ones who live somewhere near where you can really get custom skates. Or good fitting, if you put it that way. After all, that´s all you need. Here in Europe that is very rare if you aren´t professional player. But it is nice to read these writings and learn what is really possible to do if you have the luxury to get well fitted custom skates. I personally would need nexus eyelet lining because of the high instep volume, and apx interior (eee/a) for right fit, and also curve materials, but how is it done in real life? Nexus 1000 heel is really horrible (wide and akward) in my opinion, and the toecap has really generous (too much) volume. I think JR needs to do some European tour for us..!! Or maybe I will wait for Nexus 8000 skate and just hope they change the fit...
