How to fix skates that are loose in the heels

It seems the occupation for all roller derby girls is a constant search to make your skates fit right and work well. I feel your pain. Of late I am thinking about my heels, which don't fit very well in my skate and are always coming up off the footbed when I skate. This seems like a bad thing. A couple of solutions I have found (but not yet tried):

Powerslide ankle stabilizers:
(available from several places including Connie's Skate Place)

The DIY beer-solves-all-problems solution:
originally posted on the SkateLog Forum.

Perhaps a combination of the two?

Anybody else out there found other solutions?
