I'm in my 30s, having skates that are supportive and safe is a top priority. Injuries are awful. I rolled my ankle and was out for six weeks. If I broke my landing ankle I'd be out for months. It's not worth it. Don't skate in boots you don't feel have adequate support for what you are doing.

    Yes, definitely upgrade them now, and also make sure you have the right size and width.

    As for being okay in Choruses because of what OP is wearing now, I was doing toe loops and Salchows and hydroblading in ancient recreational skates meant for nothing more than skating in circles. I was lucky in those, not okay, as the scars on my ankles show.
