  1. Thank you both for your responses. I wasn't clear on one thing. I am actively using my old 7000s and I don't have that same sensation with them, but they are really starting to wear out.
  2. Hi, I used to skate a lot and then broke my ankle and stopped skating for about a decade. The skates have changed a lot in that time. I just bought Bauer s180s to replace my old Bauer Supreme 7000s. I am really having lot of trouble getting used to them and was wondering if it is a break-in/baking issue or whether it is just me not being used to really stiff, modern skates, or if I was using the old skates as a crutch for my poor skills. The particular issue is that my new skates tilt side to side a bit more than with my old skates (especially when getting on the outside edge), maybe 10 degrees. They fit well at my ankle joint and below, but the inch or so above the joint is about a half inch from the side of my leg. The feeling I get when I step in them is that if I stopped hard and caught an edge, they would tilt too much and all the force would be on my ankle joint/shin bones. I can make them fit more closely to my shin only if I tighten them so much that I have no forward flex. I am not a good skater, so maybe people are used to this and take advantage of the extra mobility; and I have just always been doing it wrong. Let me know if that dangerous tilt feeling is just a matter of getting used to it and getting stronger. Hoping for some advice. Thanks
