    All skates are different so you need to try them ALL on, even the brands you maybe wouldn't consider. My son started with some CCM's and end up hating them. He switched to some Bauer Vapors and his skating improved tremendously... loves them. Live and learn.

    Yep, You really do have to go in and try them on to make sure that they are comfortable and fit well. It might take an hour or so, but your feet will be glad you took the time to get skates that fit properly.

    Yes it's true about trying on a bunch of different skates to see how each one feels but to tell you the truth, after they bake them for you and then you skate in them once or twice, most good skates should mold pretty good to your feet... unless you have a really skinny or a really thick foot, then you're options will narrow and you'll have specific choices to choose from.

    My suggestion would be the Bauer Vapor's. Look around at local rinks and even all the way up to the NHL, you'll see a lot of them and for good reason. Depending on how much money you want to spend they have different models: X:05 (cheapest), X:15, X:20, X:30, & X:40 (most expensive). I think they even have a new model of the Bauer Vapor's that run from X 1.0 to X 5.0. Check 'em out...

    Thanks John, but I wear a size 12 shoe, so I don't think my pups are going to squeeze into them.

    Steve think of the Brother's Grimm version of Cinderella...ha ha it was just an option, but good luck on the hunt. Hockeytron, and Hockey Monkey are good bets for sitting down and trying things on
