I 'm going to try to nurse them until the new stealth series has more than the RS to compare. found a great closeout price on the 2010 6k's.
btw I'm 6'1 225 and skate twice a week. Any help is appreciated
Aha I have S15s too, still going after 3 years which is about 3 years longer than most people have had them.
I'm not sure if it's the same heel size all the way through, but I wouldn't be surprised either way. Any way to try them on? As you know, Stealth has a very different ankle/heel shape.
For your size and freq of play, perhaps try and aim for a higher pricepoint?
The Stealth skates under the RS (85S, 75S etc.) will hit stores late spring 2013 I believe, but FWIW, I found the RS fit quite differently than the older Stealth skates. As I wrote in the guide, I find them closer to Supreme than old Stealth.
