Comments: Got these skates a week ago and used them in a couple of games since. They are a
comfortable and supportive skate. Nothing to flashy or crazy about them, they seem pretty
basic. The only complaint i have is the wheels and bearings. I switched them out with some
labedas and swiss bearings and it made the skate much better. Can't go wrong for the price.
All around good skate
