For you. I noticed the difference between $300 skates and $600 ones the first time I stepped on the ice with the new ones. Lighter, more responsive, and I felt like more energy was going through to the ice. And I got a bit faster too.

For a beginner, it won't matter. But for some of us, it makes a rather noticeable difference.
