Inline Skate/Boot Comfort Secrets Sorely Needed: Fix Rec & Speedskate Blisters, Ankle & Foot Problems--Socks, Heat Molding, Pads

In getting ready for the 2009 skate season it's become apparent that a little extra skate comfort could go a long way.  I remember finishing the 2008 Tour de Kale and wishing I had chosen the 25K instead of 60K.  Now granted - much of the pavement was rough, hills were steep, my pre-skate and event nourishment was lacking, etc. but after finishing, my feet were angry and my skates and I were not on speaking terms for the long ride home.

Thoughts on Buying First Inline Speed Skate Boots and Frames

When I was about to be fitted for my first set of speedskates, I wondered if I would be able to skate in low-cut boots too, but I tried someone's (Dan Burger's, in fact; thanks, Dan) and it turned out to be fine. I got Verducci V-Tek boots that were "semi-custom," meaning the ankle area was custom and the front of the boots stock, or so they said. For awhile I used some Mogema R-1s but ultimately decided they were not as good as mia Verducci (for me) and I went back to the V-Teks. The Mogemas ultimately broke down at the mounting slot, which seemed a poor design to me.
