I bought a pair 3 months ago.
I play fairly competitive rec league once a week and maybe a pick up game every other week so durability really hasn't been a concern. They actually still look new except for a slight cut on the boot where some ape gashed me.
They broke in fairly fast. I had them heated. I usually buy my skates tight, 2 sizes under my shoe, still they are pretty comfortable for a skate.
They are light as hell. If you are slow you won't be as slow. If you are fast, you'll be really fast.
They look cool. In my opinion, they are cosmetically superior to every skate on the market, but who other than me cares about that?
I paid 480.00 for them but I can afford it and I wanted them so what the hell.
I recommend them because you can't beat a lightweight skate. It is the single most important piece of equipment in your arsenal and you shouldn't compromise just because they are expensive. They will make a very noticeable difference for a player at ANY level...
