I started playing in an adult hockey league in March. We ended the regular season in 3rd place and just won our first playoff game tonight with a shut out. Recently my skates have been hurting my little toes on both feet...the left one is worse. When I bought the skates I had them baked and sat in them to mold them to my feet. They haven't been a problem except in the last few weeks. Even before they started hurting I was in them 2 days a week. There were a few random times they did hurt but it was because I was wearing crappy socks. A few other times I used band aids on my toes and that made them feel better. Now nothing works. It's like they are rubbing but I'm not getting blisters. It's more like painful callouses. I've read to try and loosen your skates but I like the feeling every where else on my foot if I lace them tighter. Anyone play hockey and ever have this problem?

My brother says maybe your toes are slipping forward into the boot. He says try a cushionery sock around the toes and when you put your foot in the boot, kick your foot back to get the foot at the back of the boot and then lace tightly.

Congrats on your playoff run!

Try weaving something soft (a nylon stocking) through your toes before putting on your socks.

How’s your DD doing in hockey?

Thanks for the advice. I'll try both.

DD is doing great! She did in house squirts after mites travel was over. Her team finished undefeated in the regular season and had an unfortunate loss in the last 5 seconds of overtime to the 2nd place team in the playoffs. So they came in 3rd in the championships. She tried out for squirts travel and made the B team. I'm very proud being this is her first year as a squirt. We will be going to the Hershey tournament this year. Her coach is a former NHL player and was on the Russian team at the Lake Placid Olympics so she is going to learn a lot this year.
