      "Haglund’s deformity is a bony growth on the back of the heel. It literally looks like an extra bone is growing out of the heel."

      This is the definition of what I mean when I say "Bauer bump"

      Unless you bump it against something.

        I'm bumping against the base of my chair as I type this, no pain whatsoever.

          Take those size 14 Danners off and you might feel something.

            And until it becomes so large you can't wear shoes

            It's nature's way of telling you you shouldn't be wearing Bauers

              The odd part is that my player skates are Vapors, and I don't have any problems in the heel area.

              The Mako has a pronounced shape, so it may be best for those with rather pointy heels or something...

            It doesn't hurt for me either so I can understand what you're saying. However, I had a teammate whose did. Long story short, he needed surgery and was on the shelf for a while...

            So yeah, he was a bit of a cautionary tale for us.

              Rico my son got a Bauer bump a few years ago and I subsequently got his skates punched where the bump was located. I continue to get the skates punched on every new pair he gets he has never had any pain nor has the issue gotten worse. Something that you could consider?

                Hahahaha I don't wear combat boots anymore, been out of the Marine Corps for a few years now. Danners were nice but I never owned a pair lol.

                  Idk every hockey skate I have worn since I was a kid has been a Bauer skate. Aside from a blister here and there I never had a problem.

                    What's funny is that, the moment I started thinking about switching back to the 11k, my heel stopped bugging me...

                    weird.

                    In any case, i think it's because I loosened up how tight I was tying them, which appears to have alleviated the pressure on the heel.

                    I'm still concerned however, that even if the pain is not occuring, that the callous could continue to grow. Guess I'll just have to observe (or as you mentioned, get it punched a bit. I'm just concerned about the quality of skate techs in my current town...)

                      Rico your skates should be easy to punch they have no cowling - my sons bump is on the outside of one of his heels and just where the Bauer cowling ends and the boot begins but we get it done.

                      ​Will be going through this exercise again with his most recent set of Bauer Reactor 9000's shortly!

                        With the Mako, you should be able to hit it lightly with a heat gun where the pressure point is, and push it out from the inside with the handle of a screwdriver or the like. I'm sure VH has a youtube video for a similar issue

                          I never had any problems with Bauer myself, but I know a lot of people whose foot problems went away once they switched to other brands.

                          each brand has its own foot shape - you need to find the one that fits yours

                            They have several videos but don't remember anything about pushing them out. Could be that since they were made for your feet it isn't necessary. In the heat molding video they do suggest putting quick clamps on the heels to better form it to your foot.
