Does anyone have any recommendations for a specific boot? I'm learning single jumps, and my foot has a high arch, yet really small heels and ankles. One coach at my rink recommended custom Klingbeils, but since I'm such a low level, that seems like major overkill. Then the coach I started seeing gave me a recommendation to purchase Riedells from a shop that specifically sells figure skates. Unfortunately, I've already purchased skates from this shop twice, and have had rather poor experiences with the skates I got. My first pair were recreational Riedells (I'd never skated before), so it was understandable when I needed something better a few months later. However these were so big I ended up spraining my ankle, yet the arch was so low that my feet would get a sharp pain. I found this to be the case when I tried on Riedells of a better quality as well. My second pair ended up being a set of GAM 035's, these were significantly better at first, but after a few months again, there are gigantic creases in the sides, and these have also turned out to be too big. As these would have originally been a $200 pair of skates, I was kind of annoyed that they didn't last long either. Granted, I knew that these were an older model that had been sitting in the store for a while (I got them discounted), but that doesn't help that this place fitted me with a pair of skates that were too big again. I really liked my GAMs at first, so should I just try to stick with that brand and go down a size? Or if anyone else has a good brand recommendation that would be fantastic. Fortunately there's three other figure skate shops within a 30 mile radius, so I can avoid that one place, and still have a lot of options available. I REALLY appreciate anyone who took the time to read that, and THANK YOU for your help!
