Thanks for all your comments.
The main reason that I mentioned the Vapors in my initial post,
is that they are pretty much the only skates available in stores where I live. (Norway)
And like most of you recommend, I would really like to try them on before I buy.
So that leaves me with the choice between Vapors X 3.0, 5.0 & 6.0.
I have tried them on, and they seem to fit pretty good, but I'm having a hard time deciding which one to get.
I understand the 5 & 6 have a better runner than the 3s, but what are the other differences?
Do you guys think the better skates warrant the price jump?
I've also heard that more "advanced" skates can be difficult to break in, if you're on the light side (<170 lbs),
and only get a couple of hours on the ice per week.. would love to hear some opinions on that as well.
