Sigh, so anybody that saw my MLX Skate Blades thread knows I needed new blades. I got new holders with it, I just took a better look at them since I got back from the shop and there are huge splits in the boot where the holder is on one skate. You can move the whole boot off and you can hear it cracking more and more. The split is big enough that you can clearly see through it...
I didn't notice until just now and the place I went to closed almost 2 hours ago so I haven't talked to the guy who repaired them, I better get my money back for at least the damn holders and the blades...
But, nevertheless, that's a different issue. I'm going to need a new pair of skates... I have wide feet, are there any brands in particular that I should be looking at? I know some companies typically make wider boots than others. Also, I'm looking around the $400 range, any recommendations for the best skates in that range or at least what to stay away from?
