A whole lot of them. And then there are guys like me in an even worse situation. I'm wearing a used pair of X:60's that were custom made for one of our players when he played Major Junior last season lol. He got a new pair this year and I took his old pair. They don't fit nearly as well as they should, but for the ~10 times a year I get on the ice they'll do me fine for a few years. I have a foot better suited for Bauer Supremes.
