Comments: this skates is more suitable for people with low-med volume, narrow-med mid-forefoot, narrow heel,
normal arch. Also, the boot is way too soft at this price point. So, for people with E or EE width, better try it first, or just move on
Comments: I thought I'd give a little feedback on the fit of the Alkali CA7 skates. I fit well into a Bauer
Vapor X5.0 ice skate in a size 8D. I spoke with the guys at Alkali, and the said that the size should transfer over just fine. I first
purchased a pair of 8D's from you, and they were just a hair too small. My right big toe pushed against the toe of the boot. While
they may have been just perfect after baking them and breaking them in, I did not want to chance it when you guarantee a fit. I sent
them back, and re-ordered a size 8.5D and they are pretty much right on. Since the skate was new they felt a little loose side to side,
but perfect lengthwise. After baking them and tightening the laces, they are a perfect fit. These skates are awesome. They are very
fast and responsive.

Comments: Very comfortable and high-performance skates. It's a quality skate with quality material. The
skates need very minimal break-in time and provide with excellent energy transfer.

Alkali took the boot of the 2011 CA9 and made some great upgrades by adding more foams and composite inserts in key areas. They also increased the size of the L pads in the ankle area helping eliminate heel lift. The CA9 RPD rolls on the Alkali Magnesium frame and Labeda Addiction wheels with swiss bearings. These paired together will give you great response with grip and breakaway speed.
