Default Softening Riedell inside heel/arch cardboard

Iíve had a pair of 911s for 14 years and even now, when I wear them for a while, the cardboard that holds the bootís shape digs into my foot above the inside of my arch and sometimes causes blisters.

Is there a way to soften this up so that this doesnít happen?

If softening with leather conditioner or doing something to soften the cardboard counter doesn't work, which it might not (After 14 years it should be sufficiently broken in..), you can always take it to a cobbler and have them either remove or bend the counter (The hard part that holds the shape of the boot and provides some support) to relieve some pressure.
I have a pair of the 911s and they do the same thing to me after skating for about 4 hours or so, it's pretty annoying and personally I solved the problem by switching to artistic skating with different boots
