Cranky Pants are officially on. My skates are breaking down. I noticed the beginnings of a crease at the ankles of both boots today. I've only had them for two years! This is half the time I thought they'd last!

BF said that the way my feet are shaped, ain't no stock boot ever going to fit them and the lacing accommodations I do to make these workable are breaking them down faster, so if I want to not be doing this again in two years or less--not to mention have less pain than I do now--customs are my only choice. Customs, of course, being in the $800+ range, more if a brand/style changes changes what size blade I take and I can't move my current ones.

On the other hand, these are going to become unsafe to skate in within 4-6 months, so I don't have much choice, at least if I want to continue skating. Apparently the head of SP Teri is going to be at the coaching conference in Nashville in May, so I'll make an appointment and see what they can do for me. Arrrrggghhh.
