Comments: I recently bought these because I have bought Mission skates my whole life and they just weren't good enough, the Mission boot would always come undone from the frame and I was tired of it so I had to try something new. I bought the entry model on these and have been extremely impressed with the quality from an entry model. I was disappointed at first because I saw that you can't bake these but no worries I was surprised at how well and fast they broke in to my feet and are super comfortable. I was skeptical at first but now I am a firm believer in Bauer skates and would recommend these to anyone. Overall 9 out of 10 only because it's really hard in the front of the ankle but that is probably with the entry model.

Comments: These skates are great for people who are new to roller hockey or for people who just skate for fun. I've had my pair for 1 and a half years now skating once a week on concrete and it is holding up (except the wheels) Overall good skate for the value.Would rate it a 8/10
