I've been wearing Graf 609's for the last few years and love em but thought I'd see if there is anything that a bunch of guys recommend over them. Before the Grafs I wore Bauer 4000s when they were brand new - so its been a while in the Grafs.
I've got an E width foot so a wider skate fits better and a high arch...if that makes a differnce at all.
I did the same thing, my old skates were 4000s, now I have Grafs. I really wish I had never bought the Grafs.. they took forever to break in/get used to. I dunno if it was just me, but I was not all that thrilled. But since I spent hundred of dollars on the Grafs, and they are perfectly fine, as far as not being worn out, I will not be switching anytime soon.
I think if I was going to buy new skates, I would try on all the new Bauers, because I loved how my old ones felt.
