After examining the skate, a few impressions I got off about fit specifically were that the ankle and heel seem similar in shape, the widefoot is no longer as wide as in previous years' Stealth skates. The toebox is quite large, but back to a traditional rounded box shape (think Supreme). No longer has a shallow forefoot depth.
Flexible tendon guard like Reebok and NXG. Softer boot than the S17, the level of stiffness is pretty consistent to a $600-$700 skate if not a bit softer. No longer has a carbon/texalium focused construction.
New footbed concept, bit more support in the arch and heel.
