Default Help with skate fit problem

Hello,
I just recently purchased a set of new Easton S17 skates.
I use to be an 8.5 Easton but I always had a little room at the front of my skate.
This time I tried an 8.0 skate, my toe just barely touches the front of the skate when I lean forward. When sitting my heel all the way back there is probably 1/8 inch between my toe and the front. Will I be ok or should I go back to an 8.5?

#2: Is it possible to put/stuff some kind of padding in the toe area of the skate? I am thinking this might help my toes from sliding forward and hitting the front.

#3: I am also noticing when I stand up on my toes in the skate, it feels like the Easton foot bed is too thin and I feel the rivets.
Is there a better foot bed which I can get that will provide a little more padding under my toes/ball of my foot?

Thank you,
Eric

Strongly agree with the Superfeet footbeds. Makes it so much more comfortable.
