    letting skates cool down

    Does anyone ever take practice breaks to take their skates off so the insides can cool down? I decided to try it the other day, and it helped my skates feel more secure. The leather shrinks back to where it was before the skates were put on, so the boots feel more secure.
    What kinds of things do people do to/with their skates to keep them cooler feeling inside.?

    I notice the same thing with heat-moldable boots. There's a layer of temperature-sensitive material in-between the layers of leather, and it gets harder or softer depending on the temperature. If I skate too aggressively for too long, my feet heat up my boots and the ankles start to feel wobbly, like they're becoming unlaced. I get nervous about competing in warm rinks for the same reason!

    I ordered new boots today, so I'm hoping my feet heat will be help with breaking them in (won;t have them for 4 to 5 weeks).
