Oh, I agree completely. The issue is that I got my current skates by doing that and they still didn't come out right. I guess I was looking to see maybe what lines or models might be best so I don't waste everyone's time. We don't really have any great shops so the more I know before I go in the better off I'll be.
Edit: Also, are new series of skates coming out that I should wait for before getting something new?
