I can now play for hours and feel no feet pain. This has inspired me to get back into ice hockey, however here's my question. I noticed that RBK makes a 4k ice skate, but I was wondering if they are the same fit as the 4k inline. None of my local stores here in Queens/Long Island seem to carry this skate. I tried on a rbk 8k ice skate ($500), but it was hurting my feet as soon as I laced them up. Does anyone if the RBK 4k ice is the same fit as the rbk 4k inline? Cause if they are I would consider ordering them online. In addition, does anyone have the rbk inline or ice skate here? What do you think of the skate? And would mounting an ice hockey frame on the rbk 4k inline skates be an option?

thanx for any feedback.

I've got the 4k inline skates and I agree, they're extremely comfortable.. If you wanted to spend the money, just buy the 4k inline skates and replace the wheels with a blade... easiest alternative IMO...
