I've been using the same pair of Graf 705's for the past 9 years. I used them throughout travel and high school hockey. I only play once a week now-a-days, but they still feel great. I've had to change the steels a few times over the years, but I am beyond pleased with them. The only thing I remember having a problem with was breaking in the boots. It took quite a while for them to feel right.

Recently, I noticed that the boots are getting more and more worn out. It's to the point now where if I don't do anything about it, I'm guaranteed to have a dime-sized hole on each boot. I'm worried the most about the right boot. There will be a hole in the area on the inside-side, about an inch from the bottom of the boot and an inch and a half from the toe. That's not all the trouble I have with that boot, the bottom outside lace holder (sorry, for not being more technical) has partially corroded. The stitches holding it together have begun to pop.

I'm really attached to these Skates. They are probably one of the best purchases I have ever made (actually my dad bought them for me when I was in 8th grade, I'm 23 now). Can anyone lead me in the right direction for Graf boot repair? I want to do this right and hopefully I'm acting before anything becomes un-repairable.

I can't recommend Graf 705's enough.
