Yes, IMO they do.. I got a $950 pair from Bauer, I love them. I skated in a cheap pair most of my life and had foot pain, poor protection, and other issues aside from feeling cheap.. these are amazing. But would I have spent more than $500 on it, heeeeelllllllllllllllllllllll no, but I also play beer league hockey, lol.

Note: I'm a poor college kid and I got them slightly used by Mike Lundin at an equipment sale the Bolts had one day in November, lol. $100 for $950 pair, booyah!

As for the other equipment, I don't think its that smart to spend the extra money on it. I would have stuck with my 10 year old gloves if the Bolts didn't have that sale (I got some siiiick Warrior ones for $50, normally $300). Although I did have to replace my helmet no matter what (once again, for 50 I got a 300 dollar helmet with Oakley visor, woot woot!)
