Has the person who sold them to you adjusted your blades? It’s probably not ideal but it shouldn’t be a big problem? Mine were adjusted as much as possible but it was still not enough. The guy even put pieces of leather under the blades to increase the angle but nope LOL I am hoping it will be better once I get my new skates since the blades won’t be pre-mounted
Wait til you skate on your new skates for the first time! Everything will be so much easier and more effortless
As for how to take care of your skates:
Best to keep them as dry as possible so take them out of your gym bag when you‘re at home so the inside can dry (can get smelly) and the soakers should take care of the blades. Always wipe them with a towel after using them and before putting on soakers. You should use guards for the distance between putting them on and stepping on the ice.
As for laces, I just wrap them around the ankle part of the boot but I am not sure if that’s ideal (I‘ve seen people make a ribbon out of them and put them into the boot but since my laces sometimes end up wet I don’t do that.)
