Hello everyone,

From the book by Wayne Gretzky about ice hockey.

He took his skates to a leather-worker to have extra stitching put into the ankles to make them stiffer. The stiffer a skate is, the more power is transferred to the blade. Soon a lot of guys were doing it. Paul and I also used to wear new skates into the hot tub to break them down and mold them to our feet.

Does "wear new skates into the hot tub" imply that they wore skates while lying or sitting in jacuzzi?

Thank you.
