If I created an issue, I apologize. I was just trying to provide a skate model for her to size.
it's okay, dude! Like I said, I'm definitely just gonna try on a bunch and see how I feel. When I originally bought my skates, I'm fairly certain they only had Bauer and maybe Reebok brands, and that was it. It was a super small skate shop inside a rink. I'm definitely going to wait until I move to the US to start looking for a new pair of skates, there's no use trying to find a decent pair here. That, and they're almost twice the price! I think mine were originally close to 200 dollars.

But obviously if the store hypothetically only had that skate in your size to try, it's better than nothing, and if anything, it gives you some idea of how models scale up the line.
Yup, that's basically my thoughts too. I would love to have a pair of higher end skates, but I'll have to see how my budget goes and what happens over the next 6 months.
