I had all but given up on my rubbing problem, until I found this skate. You can''t even imagine my relief! For two years I have been wrapping my right foot to stop myself from rubbing my inside ankle raw. I even tried custom ordering narrow for my heel and foot with a new pair of Riedell''s this season and still the rubbing. I blamed my feet and determined it was my derby sacrifice. Then I used my tax return for something really useful this year, Antik''s! Not only have I solved my rubbing issues, the skate fits my heel and does not let go! My ankles have much better support, I feel more in control of my toe stop, I don''t have to get neurotic about checking my toe stop to make sure its not loose, and I am not loosing circulation in my foot and having to unlace and re-lace my skates. It did not take long to adjust to the subtle differences, few practices. It blows my mind how amazing it is to finally find a pair of skates that fit me! This is truly a quality skate.
