Comments: been using these skates about 4 months now, the skates fit great i did not bake them and broke in about 4 uses. i play in an outdoor cement rink 1-2 times a week and these skates can last... however, at my skill level i can tell the "bang for your buck" option wasn't the best path to take, although great skates i tend to push them past their limits and will feel lack of support in the boot and heel guard. definitely love the vapor line and will try the 60s next.
invest in better skates if you're already decent at hockey you will notice

Comments: Very good skates for its price point. It has a good comfortable tight fit around the ankles for pretty good support. All though there seems to be a decent amount of space in the toe area and it's a little loose. Which is too much space/room in the toe area for me, I can't accelerate as fast as I usually would. But other than that, I like them they're not bad at all.
