Sorry to jump on your post but I'm just wondering if anyone has any feedback on riedell 951 or riedell 495? I desperately need new skates and these both look good for jamming and feet not sliding.

Sorry nut, I look forward to seeing your new skates! :)

I've split out your question Ruby, lack of response might be because it was under a Vanilla skates thread

Ballistic whistle was recommending these to me on Saturday as one of the skates I should look into. He said they are good if you have problems with your feet sliding in your actual skates as they have a strap round the back of the ankle so you have more options to adjust the fit.

He then did also say really you want to get yourselves custom skates like him but then we don't all have fast girl skates coming to the country to measure our feet! ;-)

I think that's the kind of strap my skates have (suregrip contender). I've found they do help, but they've now disintegrated from sliding on the side of my foot.
