This is the second pair of Reebok skates in the past 2 years for my son. He loves the skates and they perform very well for him however, Reebok should sell these skates with an unlimited supply of skate laces. These skates' eyelits chew up laces terribly. My son has worn his skates 4 times in the last week and I have already had to replace the laces. His last pair he wore for one season and I went through 8-10 pair of laces. Must be something in the Reebok since my other son's Bauers have had the same laces for an entire season.
