Hello. I'm an adult skater who has returned to skating after a long break. I'm 165cm and 59kg. As a teenager I skated junior level. Back then I was in extra rigid custom made boots. Eighteen months ago I bought Edea Chorus (255B) and had them heat moulded and they've been OK but I started competing again this year in Adult Silver, skating four times a week and now I find I need to re-lace them three times a session. Also, my backspin has never really come back properly - it's like I can't feel my right pinky toe - very odd. Pretty sure my blade's in the right place though. I've tried the Edea lacing technique but I suspect the boots, while comfortable, are not really what I need as I go back into double jumps. I can't bear having a big gap at the tongue. There's no boot fitter here - options at our rink are Wifa, Risport and Jackson. My feet are narrow and I have dropped arches - I wear orthotics in my running shoes to avoid PF, but not in my skates (yet). I must admit I prefer the idea of leather, but really I just want to make sure the boots are right. I'm also hoping I don't have to buy longer Phantoms as I sold my old ones (10") and am now on 9 1/4" with the Edeas. Loads of people in my rink swear by Ice Fly but I don't want to buy Edea again if I end up having the same problem in the more expensive model. Advice much appreciated, thanks!
