Any thoughts would be appreciated.....Thanks!
I bought a pair of 8090s about 2 months ago, and I have to say they are the most comfortable 'new' skates I have ever owned. There was virtually no break-in time: no pain, no blisters, no heal movement from the first time I wore them.
The EE width I got is a nice, wide boot; very comfortable. From what the sales rep said, I guess the Nike skate is also good for wider feet, but I preferred the traditional look over the space boot design.
