Same skates I currently have. Its a mission GENERATOR CHASSI w/ the high low set up. A very rigid boot and solid chassi that has served me well for recreational skating and roller goal. I found the boot to be very comfortable. They area half size larger than what I normally would wear. The axles do mount to a threaded chassi but the loosening is most likely due to stretched threads on the axkle. They are only aluminum so if you over tighten just once, the threads become stretched and will not lock well. A new set of axles will solve the problem. With an aluminum axle you can either use the blue lock-tite or simply bring them up snug with the allen key and then just a little more..two fingers tight, so to speak. Reagrdless, with the abec 7 and above bearings you should be pulling and cleaning them so axles would be removed and retightened every third or fourth use.

They were missions top end skate retailing for around 399.00 US back in 2000
