I dunno what they compare to in the current RBK hockey skate lineup, but they'd be in the middle to lower I'd think.

under 100, maybe... but Christ, you don't need $300 skates to be a good skater.
No doubt, you could take a great skater and stick him in $50 skates, and he'd be better than most anyone else even in top-of-the-line $800 skates.

I think the issue though is more personal comfort and stability while skating, since from those come confidence and the opportunity to push and become better. I suck as a skater, and know my skates are well above my level, but hoped that over time 2 things would happen:

1-the skates would become more comfortable as they wore in
2-I'd get better, and grow in skill towards the level of skate I'd purchased

So far, more of #2 has occurred, not so much #1.
