I also say cheap skates will NOT give you the support of a more quality skate in very sharp high force cut type turns. Especially when you have all of your weight on one foot making a tight turn toward the goal or something from the boards.

It isn't even a debate really .... one should have at least an intermediate mid priced skate. These "public skating" hockey skates are for once or twice a year players who go on a pond or public skating.

If one plays any more than that they need a decent skate.
All of that is correct. The public skating skates are more geared towards young children I would say, like 5 to 9 or so when they quickly grow out of them and shots arent very hard and high tech skates arent needed.
