How Can I Get Used to My Low-Cut Skate Boots?

How Do I Get Used to Low-Cut Boots?

QHi, Bill: I have skated inline marathons on mid-cuff inline skates for five years. But recently, I purchased low-cuff skates, and I find that wearing them, I feel a little wobbly and my feet and ankles get sore. Do you have any training tips or exercises to help with the transition to low-cuff skates? - Kevin in Chippewa Falls, WI

Hi, Kevin: For starters, make sure that your skates fit properly. Low-cut boots must fit snuggly. Otherwise, they don’t provide enough support.

If your boots are heat moldable, make sure you’ve done a good job molding them. In particular, make sure they fit nice and snug around your ankle and Achilles tendon (back of the foot)....

Hi, Dave: Here are some slack-boot tips from the master bootmaker himself, Inze Bont:

Will New Boots Cure My Ankle Problems?

QHello, Bill: After a few seasons on skates, I recently switched to a 4-wheel frame with 100mm wheels. But now I'm having problems with my ankles. I can't keep them straight. (See attached photo.) What should I do? Do I need new boots? - Janis Hofmanis, Riga, Latvia

Hi, Janis: It looks like your boots are the problem. They don't appear to fit properly. They are loose around your ankle and probably don't give your feet the proper support. From the look of it, I'd say your boots are costing you about 20 percent of your push.

By comparison, look at the skater in front of you in the photo. His boots are snug around the ankles, his legs and feet form a straight line...
