I have them and they're great skates but they don't seem very durable to me. A lot of the plastic over the composite boot is already peeling off and I worry that some day the whole boot will fall apart. The boot already has a small 1" crack by one of the ankles. I forget which one.

I did block a shot this morning with the inside of my boot that left quite a stinger and it has gotten a little swolen by now. I wonder how much it would swell if I didn't have these. They are nice skates but as was mentioned above, contact them first if you have wide feet. They made me custom boots to the size of my foot for no extra charge which was really cool.

Overall though, unless you have money to burn, you may want to look elsewhere. I just don't think they're worth the $800 they retail for (although I was lucky enough to get them half off when they first went for sale to the public.)
