Pros: Helped improve my game, Great value, Easy to use, Features
I wanted to upgrade from some basic cheap skates I had. The 16K's provide everything (edge, speed, turning, comfort) that I was hoping for with a nicer skate. I love the lace lock halfway up the boot that ensures everything stays tight, but it also makes it easier to tie the ankle loops.
I wasn't sure about the pump but you barely even need it. Every part of my foot was hugged snugly by the boot.
I am without a doubt faster and more agile in these skates.
Overall, this was a great upgrade.
