Pros: Helped improve my game, Great value, Quality, Features, slick looking
Cons: not human and thus hard to share my life with
I finally went ahead and pulled the trigger on these skates...had them baked and sharpened in the store...just got back not too long ago from my first public skate with them.
I want to marry these skates. THAT'S how much I love them. Nearly a half pound per skate lighter than my old pair, and much stiffer to boot! I've finally found a pair of skates that feels fantastic all around. Fantastic heel lock, great ankle support, plenty of room in the forefoot. I even love the stock laces they come with! If I had one MINOR quibble, it's that I had a very small case of lace bite at first, but that went away after I retied them.
Thank you, CCM, for doing your thing! I'm going to marry my U+10's and have little babies with them. Freakish half human, half hockey skate babies!!! Bauer skates aren't for everyone...try on lots of pairs and find your love, too...but definitely give these a shot.
