edit: I'm probably being naive about finding skates for $40-50
You may want to check out a Play-It-Again sports store if you have one where you are. They deal in new gear but also buy and trade used gear.
You may be able to get a $150 used for $60 or something. Maybe a $100 skate for $40 etc.
Anyway ... there's no shame in buying used gear.
Check the store locations link on their website and see. If you wear a large men's size like 12 or 13 you will probably be out of luck because they are rarely traded in. usually the medium sizes prevail on their shelves.
