It's a gimmick, and an obscenely-priced one at that. There's absolutely no way that decent skating is possible in those pads, they function SOLELY in the butterfly, and even at that, the fact that there's no boot actually hinders butterfly performance at the very edge of the toe, in that should a puck only partially hit the end of the toe, it's likely to simply deflect off of the toe of the pad and straight back into the net.
