Pros: Helped improve my game, Great value, Quality, Easy to use, Features
Cons: maybe not enough lacebite protection
I needed a new skate because the beginner skates I had were not keeping up very well. I went to try these on along with most other brands in the same price range.
These fit my foot like a glove, and after wearing them a few times I'm quickly realizing what a good skate can do as far as speed, comfort, and protection!
I feel 5x faster, grab more ice, and can last an entire game without my foot becoming sore!
The staff at Total Hockey was more than patient with my questions and were more than willing to let me try on any skate I wanted to find the perfect pair. I really appreciated their honesty about the skates and how there are miniscule differences in the skates above a certain price point (you are basically paying more for different materials and slight weight reduction, maybe a little more protection..not something a beginner/intermediate guy like me should really be concerned about)
Total Hockey was even nice enough to bake and sharpen the skates free of charge after purchase, which I expected to pay extra for!
All in all it was a pleasant buying experience and is really going to help my game out a lot, I would definitely recommend the same experience for someone else looking to improve their game!
