As quoted from Luke AKA Short Bus at Antik:
Molding your boots with a hairdryer:
Let the hair dryer run on hot until it gets pretty warm. Use it on the "hot spot" where it is hurting your foot the most. Make sure you do not put it directly on it, move your hand in a circular motion. Once it is warm enough, put your fit back in and lace them like you normally would if you were going to skate. If there is still a prob., heat them up again and use a blunt end of a screw drive to push it out.
Please include your phone number on all Antik skate orders so we can call you regarding lead time.
What skates are you in now? make/model/size?
What womens or mens shoe size do you wear?
Have you ever had a problem purchasing shoes? Examples - B-Train's friends point and laugh at how leeetle her feet are because they are really narrow. Or other kids have to purchase larger shoes to compensate for the width of their feet.

I've just recently purchased a pair of these after trying on a few non-vegan pairs to confirm the correct sizing, and I can say that they are absolutely amazing.
I can now wear the bridge of the laces quite loose and yet have a lot of solid, tight lacing easily around the heel which locks my heel into place, assisted by the cupping shape of the boot at the back.
I haven't heat molded these as yet, though I think I will only need to do so a tiny bit to make the heel a bit tighter - they're pretty much spot on as is.
The material these are made out of is STURDY! (And yet, does flex around the ankle nicely when the laces aren't done up the whole way.) I've played a bout and scrimmaged in these now and with nothing more than the standard over-the-toe covers + some hockey tape around the front, they're looking perfect.
Plates + trucks + wheels are fantastic, though changing the cushions over was a bit tough as they fit very snugly - but it is possible with some hard work.
All round, amazing skates. When I played in a bout this past weekend, it was only my second time on them and they worked like a charm, with hardly any rubbing/blisters at all, which is amazing for a second time skate!
Thanks again Wicked Skatewear - fast service, great communication and excellent prices, including shipping to Australia :)
