Most local shops, at least around here, have employees that know next to nothing. That's where sites like modsquadhockey come in. When going to a store you pretty much have to assume that the employees there don't know anything, unless proven otherwise. You definatly want to do your research before buying skates.

Also, as you know, you should never buy skates online unless you are 100% sure they will fit you. And don't buy too much skate for your ability and weight, you are just asking to have a miserable experence. Can't tell you the amount of kids (and some adults) who have One90's0, but can't even bend the boot. It's a good skate, but unless it fits your foot, and you can flex it, you are wasting your money.
