If you don't turn your feet you lower the risk of needing padding in your skates a lot. Learning to not turn the foot when facing a shooter is one of the hardest things I ever had to do. I wear Bauer 101's. The padding is the laces baby! I didn't even know skates came with padding
Best of luck man, I cannot be of much help here it seems.
Where exactly are you playing TripA anyway?
