My most recent purchase was Bauer Supreme One.9 Skates.

I absolutely LOVE these skates. They are very comfortable, incredibly durable (so far) and are certainly one of the best looking skates out there.

I felt like I couldn't justify $100 for the upgrades that the one.100 offers and I actually prefer the skate tongue on the one.9 since I like to flop them a bit.

I was able to "steal" these from Sport Chek for about $225 out of pocket (thanks to a 25% off Friends & Family coupon + gift certificates + birthday money).

I'm trying to keep them in the best possible shape for as long as I can. A deal like that doesn't come along very often and I doubt I'll ever be in a position to purchase $700 skates ever again. But, I know I have to expect a certain amount of wear and tear on them, especially being on the ice 4 times a week.


edit: 100th post! woohoo
