Default Blister Problem

hey guys. I'm hoping that this is just a break-in issue with my skate. Basically, I keep getting a blister on the right side of my left big toe. Always on the same place, and I can sometimes feel the right side of my left big toe rubbing up against the right part of the skate. Its not horrible when I'm playing though, but after 2 hours it accumulates to a very painful blister. The rest of the skate fits fine and my right skate fits perfect too.......its just this one area on the left skate that rubs up on the side of my big toe. I have a D skate......did I need a E? It seems like then it would have been too wide. Anyway, suggestions?

how long have you had the skates? Wrap your big toe with a piece of cloth tape before you put the skate on. Like you said it could just be a break in problem.

You can try "punching" it out the problem area. Make note of where the problem area is and then remove the laces. Use a hair dryer or heatgun to carefully heat up the problem area. Be really carefull you don't damage the skate by overheating it. It should be warm to the touch but not smokin' hot. Then use your fingers/thumb/any blunt tool to press out from the inside. I used a long socket extension to press out a spot for my pinky toe and now no more blisters!

You can also put your skate on and heat up the problem area with a heatgun/hair dryer.

If that doesn't work you can get your skates baked if you haven't done so already or get them punched out at your LHS.

I suggest you go to the shop where you got your skates and have them punch it out in the spot where you blister. Most skate shops will be able to do this and only charge a couple of dollars. If you bought them at the shop it will likely be a freebie.
