I agree 100% with you and Jarick. If the OP is looking to buy a pair of skates that will last the next few years it's worth spending a few extra bucks to try them on before buying. To get the most out of your skates they should feel like they were made to be on your feet -- good weight, proper arch and ankle support, etc. I'd never buy skates from the internet although the pricing has tempted me to try. Gloves, pads, helmet, even sticks but don't do skates.
