FROM SKATELOG FORUM HOST KATHIE FRY IN MARCH OF 2020:
This announcement is to let everyone know that after hosting the SkateLog Forum and its predecessors for nearly 20 years, I have decided it is time to permanently turn the forum over to a new owner and administrator. I cannot think of anyone more suitable to take on that role than my SkateLog forum co-host, Florida skater Jessica Wright. I am pleased to announce that Jessica has agreed to establish and host a brand new skating forum, configured like the SkateLog Forum, but with a new name and a new Web Site. This new forum is 100% owned and operated by Jessica.

NEW FORUM NAME: SkateDebate Forum
NEW WEB SITE: SkateDebate.com

Default Boots and Blisters

I have been breaking in some Riedell 192 boots and I have a problem. The boots for the most part have broken in pretty well except the right one the tongue slides about half way to the right under all of the laces. But the big problem is still on the right boot about half way between my ankle and the bottom of my foot and about a inch and a half forward on the inside of my foot. There is nothing showing in the boot but when on and laced up there is a crease that rubs and causes a blister. I wore a band-aid and I still got a blister. I have some adhesive backed mole skin and I don't know if when the blister heals it should go on my foot or on the inside of the boot.
Or, is there some way to fix the crease?

Some do it yourself suggestions, or go to a shoe repair person or go to a ski shop for custom fitting.

Is there a counter on that boot in the problem area? If so you may need to heat mold it and put a beveled bend at the edge of the counter.

I'm thinking about taking it to the OSU ice rink. They work on skate boots. I don't think I have the patients to try to reform it myself.
The crease that blisters me is above the counter.

The lip of the counter needs set outward. This is usually done by heat molding it and pressing on the counter just underneath the lip. Or rolling the edge of the counter away from the foot.
I've had do do it to a couple 395 boots.
