Whenever I skate, my left (and only my left) feet in my skating boots falls towards the outside edge. THe pro shop people looked over my blade and boot and said that everything was aligned correctly.
So, I looked at my feet. My left foot tends to supinate alot (see below) and ive actually sprained it a few times through supinating and at one foot it was so bad that I couldn't even walk for days. Ive also noticed that when I walk, my left foot rolls towards the outside edge. Everything I've looked at google and online talks mostly about pronating--rolling towards an inside edge. THe ones that talk about supinating just say to get expensive orthodics (which I can't until I get my health insurance fixed in the next few monthes)
What should I do before then? I've noticed that when I skate in a straight line with two feet in a glide, that my left foot will veer to the left like this: /
I also have high arches and very wide feet. I had my left boot punched out in the arch area to accomodate my wide feet, ( the inside right arch area of the leather in my left skate was so narrow that my arch rested on it --the side leather--instead of my heel carrying the weight!) SO I had it punched out, just in my left skate, and I noticed more supination. weird! Mr. Edge said that more arch support was good for fixing supination!
What should I do? ANy advice? Should I reverse the punching in?
--Also, I have two sets (four blades) of relatively new MK Professional 9'' blades that I want to sell. I can't find any takers at my local rink and I've had bad experiances with ebay. Where do you guys sell old skates and blades? (not trying to advertise, really want advice but if you do want them--pm me)
--Supination is the opposite of pronation and refers to the outward roll of the foot during normal motion
---When standing, supination occurs as the foot rolls outwards, placing most of the weight onto the outside of the foot and raising the arch
