I agree with Methane.
Criteria #1 is Fit. How do they feel on YOUR feet? You should find a low-mid level skate that does feel good on your feet. If someone brings you a 12D bauer and brings you the same size RBK/CCM skate, youre in the wrong place. Make sure they understand that sizing varies from brand to brand.
Criteria #2 is $ Ask for all the closeout skates first. This is a very good time of year to find a lot of excellent 06 skates for good prices, you should be able to find one that fits criteria #1.
For the record, I play out 2-3 times a week and have been in the same CCM 1152 custom tacks I got on closeout in late 2003 and they still feel great.
