They look great! And ease up on the ratchet buckle up top. I run mine with zero pressure on the strap. Try that, then one click at a time to snug slightly. Don't overdo the tightening of the ankle! Remember, speed skaters use "shoes" with low ankles, not boots. So cranking down the buckle till it hurts you is not necessary.

AND good socks, preferably not cotton. Fluffy acrylics work well as do expensive worsted wool. I have narrow feet so I double up on socks. Try Worlds Softest Socks. Usually available at outlet malls and of course, the Internet.
