I will never wear any other skate except 652's in my life. I have used them since i was a kid and still use them 20 years later. I have them special ordered when i need new ones.
Here are some on ebay...Anyone who has not worn these skates trust me when i tell you this that they are the best skates i have ever used. I used Bauer Supremes (man i feel old) and they were for a while regarded as the best skate other than the Graf's that Gretzky used in the early 90's...The Tacks in my mind are the best skates in the world.
