I can tell you for sure, that in season new stuff, dealers are not getting $600 skates at a cost of less than $130. There is not that much markup on skates. Having worked lots of retail, I would guess that normal cost for a pair of $600 skates is probably close to $450 or more.
If you really aren't in the business...that was a really good guess.
