Question for AIREAYE.
Are supreme 160s too stiff for a 6 year old who has been skating 3 years?
My son has been using vapor X40 / X1.0 skates for the past 2 seasons and liked them a lot, but this year jumping from size 12 to 13 seemed like too big of a jump, there seemed to be too much room, so we got him the supreme 160s in size 12.5.
My son says he likes the skates but I feel like his skating has regressed a bit. Definitely doesn't seem like he is bending his knees as much but I am tying the skates the same way I tied the vapors. Is it too much of a skate for him? The guy at the shop told me they're very similar. He also has really wide feet so we hoped the supremes would be better for him.
