When I started goaltending, I wore my player skates - goalie sharpened. They did just fine. Then when I bought used goaltending equipment, g-skates were included. I tried a couple of times but felt very off-balance. As mentioned, the blade is flat, thicker and the boot shorter and flexible. These skates were totally throwing me off so I went back to my player skates. I get the odd look but most are surprised as to how well I can play without goaltending skates. If you don't feel comfortable in g-skates, give your player skates a shot... just remember to ask for a goalie cut when sharpening - makes a huge difference. Best of luck playing the best position in sports!
