This has been very informative. My husband and I go for our first "real" fitting this Thursday and I'm really excited! I have had fit problems ever since I started skating (too small, not wide enough, too big, etc). My last problem has been heel pain. Ouch! My heels are slipping out of these boots, no matter how tight I lace them. I've only had these since April and I'm not happy....

Hubby just has big feet and has been skating in used, broken down things...time for new! I'm trying to convince him to get dance boots and dance blades, but we will see what the fitter recommends. He has flexing/bending issues (he is 58)...so if he can get a little "assistance" from his equipment, why not?
