  1. Hello. I have a used pare of ccm u+ 12 skates, size 10,5 E. They have been used for 5 months and baked/ molded once. When I sit and put them on it feels tight but good, when I stand it is ok also. But after 5 minutes of skating outside of my feet starts to hurt. Then I loose the laces and it helps but the skates start to wobble so you cant skate like that. I realize that my feet get flattened when skating other then sitting or just standing. I have 29,7 cm length, 11 cm width, low/ flat feet, low- middle instep. I have NOT baked them for my feet. Will baking eliminate the problem in the area or not? Do I have to stand in them during the baking process? Or may be these skates are not just for me?
  2. I have been having the damnest time trying to get fitted for skates. I am on my third pair and so far, nothing seems to fit well. I don't get, and I know you are tired of hearing about this, how a new skate is supposed to feel? I have heard uncomfortable until broken in, I have heard a bit of pain until broken in and I have heard, tight but fits great. I was measured at a size 8 and was looking at some Vapors. I tried on a pair of X3.0 but wanted the 4.0s. Orderd those and while the toe is fine, and the heel is fine, the mid-foot (on the outside) leaves a bit of an indentation in my foot after I wear them around the house for a few minutes. I plan on baking them at some point but I don't know if that is how a skate should fit pre-bake or not. Someone told me to look at Supremes but I tried on a One60 and the ankle wasn't comfy. Coudn't get past that. Easton EQ30s seem okay but I read here about the problems with the EQ line and how there was quality control issues. I plan on having these skates for a while so is that a big deal? thoughts from the peanut gallery. We don't have a skate shop here in town with a lot of options. When I go to either ST. Louis or Chicago, I can check out a store there but where I live, there isn't much so we are stuck doing mail order for the most part. The local shop is big into CCM but I was told those run narrow. Help from an experienced person. My brief skating bio. On the ice four times or so a week. One for a public skate with my kids, one with my beer league team and twice as coach of my son's mini-mite team (he's six). There, I am not a stud player but a hack who is trying to learn the game later in life. Thoughts. Andy
  3. Hello. I've lurked for a long time but now I am looking for some opinions. I used to play hockey and I sold professional level figure and roller skates, as well as, hockey skates and rollerblades for 4 years. So, I know how to fit skates. My problem is that one of my sons have hard to fit feet. He has a narrow heel and forefoot but a HIGH arch. He also pronates...TERRIBLY. He has finally been fitted for custom orthotics that he wears in his shoes and is going Tuesday to get a pair specifically for his hockey skates. I want to get him into a pair of Grafs but he is still in a youth skate. Size 12.5 I am looking at the G1035, G5035 and G35S. Other than that, I don't see that many Grafs that MIGHT work in his size. Is there any other options (even non-Graf ones) that I am missing? He plays about 5 times a week (practice and games) and plays almost year round. (He's VERY into it.) He is also pretty small...only 60lbs. He is currently in an Easton Stealth S1. It was an emergency buy at the end of last season when his old skates were too small. They fit him lengthwise but the boot is too soft. I've moved the blades, tried heel lifts, wedges in the boots, Superfeet, different lace techniques...you name it, I've tried it. I am hoping that the combination of the RIGHT skate and the new orthotics finally solves his horrific pronation issue. Here is the BIGGEST obstacle...we live in an area where the only DECENT skates shop is over 3 hours away and I won't be going back home to Quebec for quite awhile, so I need to buy online. I know I'll be going to Detroit in November, but he can't wait that long either. So, please, FIRE AWAY with ideas! Thanks!
