The holders and steel are worth $54 bucks alone.

They only have 9.5 and less :(. It seems that Mission sizes the same as shoes. So I'd need bigger than that.

I have a pair of Pro Boot Tacks, they are a couple of years old, do you guys think these Mission Skates are a good upgrade for me?

Depends on what model Mission and if the boot actually fit your foot. Wouldn't be much of an upgrade if the boot was too narrow and caused serious pain during use.

well I just bought a pair, hope they turn out to be good. I tried a pairof Fuel 100's on at a local store to get the idea, I am hoping these ones arent alot different..Can anyone explain the pitch 3 blade? Can I adjust them myself, is that the idea?

jminor 09-28-2008 10:20 PM

also will add that I was wearing a sz 7 in tacks and the size 7 fit in the mission as well but I did need a EE size and my feet are not that wide.In a shoe I wear an 8. Anyone go from tacks to the Fuels?

If you have a flat foot, don't bother, as Mission has a rather high arch support. Also, it was the old Amp series that went by shoe size, the new models are about a size off (ie: 10.5 shoe, 9.5 skate).

I bought them to get the holders. Going to put them on my Synergy 1500C's. I'll let you guys know when I put the brand new Mission boots on Ebay if anybody is interested.

Are you positive about that? A buddy of mine wants some new skates and he's used Missions before and wants to give this a chance. HockeyMonkey states the US foot size = skate size.

I'm not criticizing what your saying, just double checking.

EDIT: Hell, I just talked to my friend and we both might buy them, so now I really want an answer.

TheUndertow40Six2 09-29-2008 03:13 PM

I'm quite sure you drop a size from your shoe, but this is also dependent upon how your shoe company sizes their product. As in every case, trying them on is the only way to be certain. The skates need to be laced up as though you were going out for a skate, and you will need to give the heel a SOLID slam. When you're sitting down, you shouldn't feel the very front of the toecap, but when you stand flat footed, you should just barely graze the end. If you're borderline between a regular and a wide width, go with the narrower choice. A boot will always stretch out, but will never shrink in if you buy too wide.

Good info. But for 55 beans I'm going to take a chance and if I don't like them I'll probably just give them away or sell real cheap. I wear an 8 (I think) in my Vapor XIX so I'll just match them up that way.

The new models run same sizes as the shoe size-- I wear 10.5 in both.

NYRSinceBirth 09-29-2008 08:20 PM

Has anyone used this skate? I'm ordering them in the morning most likely. I heard from someone else they go about a size smaller than the shoe size. Anyone have these exact skates and can confirm? Worst case scenario I'm buying them a size smaller and hoping for the best.

jminor 09-29-2008 09:03 PM

Well I have a sz8 reebok shoe and thesize 7EE Missions fit me, at least in the fuel 100's, I hope that these 95's fit the same as the 100's (dont know why they wouldnt)

NYRSinceBirth 10-01-2008 07:28 PM

I bought them. **** it, might as well give 'em a try.
