Mission Skates are junk
I broke my inline skates after only having them for a little over a year. If you want something that will have some durability then I would recommend not going with Mission when skate shopping. I contacted Mission and since they are over a year old the warranty has expired.

When Mission first came out I was pretty weary of em but over the years they've seemed to have gotten better. I'd never know though cause I've never laced a pair up. I have a pair 1997 Bauer H7's and I love em. The only skates I've worn since 1997 and if I were to get new skates I'd go the Bauer (Bauer/Nike to be specific I guess) route for sure.

my missions felt really flimsy after a year of use. i didn't think it was a defect, just a crappy skate. i've stayed away from them and have been happier with other skates now. but i know some who love theirs and haven't had any issues with it.

Didn't ITECH buy them a while back?
I stick to CCMs. However, I don't buy any type of roller hockey skate because they are junk. I had a pair of 652 Instapumps for at least 10 years before I picked up a pair of Vectors last week.
And while on the topic of skates.. has anyone noticed how stiff skates are nowadays? I can hardly lace mine up. However, I thought they were gonna hurt while I break them in, but they did not hurt at all. I think I am in love.

I've used missions for 8 years or so? I've only broken one chassis.
