The 4000 was Bauer's top skate before the 5000's came out - I'm wearing them now - Flo fit is just a marketing name that mean's there is gel (not quite like Magellan) in the boot at the ankle for fit and comfort - These were out before the heat molding craze, so they weren't designed for heat, but consult a skate shop to see if they can be baked. If you can find them new at a good price then I would say get them - They are pre "Reactor" Bauers and as I said, Bauer's top skate when they were introduced.
The reason I was asking is because I have had these skates for a while and when I first started wearing them they were so uncomfortable. Not just that new skate uncomfortable but almost unbearable. I have had them for a while but only play ice once in a while. They are better but I started thinking that maybe they were supposed to be molded to your foot. The gel that you mention in my boot is so stiff.
You think taking a hair dryer too them might soften up the gel and make a better fit?
