You may remember that the left boot (if it had been a man) fit like love at first sight:
However, today when I tried the rebuilt right boot on, it fit fine off ice, but trying to skate on it was like this:
My tech took the boots and sent me off. Fifteen minutes later he was back. The right boot's sole was slightly warped, he shimmed the blade to fix that. I went out on the ice and in the first stroke it was like this between the boot and I:
I could do all my shtick, and I knew that at the first stroke!
Now all that's left is the break in period!
