What attracted me to the Easton Synergy skate line was the fit. Most skates have a uniform fit throughout the boot, but the synergy line is narrow at the heel, and wider toward the forefoot. This may not be ideal for all feet, but for me, this fit is perfect.
The skates took about seven skatings to fully break in. The skates are very light, and the inside keeps very dry. They also have a great stiffness level, stiff enough to give you great energy transfer and protection, yet flexible enough to stay comfortable.
The EQ40's deliver on every point; comfortable, light, durable, and at a much lower price than comparable models from other brands. In a nutshell, these skates made me a better skater, improved my speed, my stride, and my turns. Everything you want, nothing you don't.
