I needed some help. I just started skating last year, and I'm still pretty bad at it, however I'm going to start skating about 3 times a week and play shiny atleast once a week. I currently own a pair od Easton Ultra lite's, however these skates are too tight on me, as they have given me blisters. I wanted to get new skates, and I was looking at these two pairs.
Easton S5, and Easton S9.
I'm willing to spend 300 for good pair of skates. I'm not playing any competitive hockey, and durability is a big thing for me, as I want them to last me few years.
So please enlighten me on which of these gorgeous pair I should purchase.
Your reasoning doesn't make a lot of sense. You currently own Eastons that don't fit you properly, so you want another pair of Eastons, but won't upgrade to a decent mid-level skate because of the way it looks?
Obviously, do what you want...but when you limit your options based on stuff like that, you run a pretty high chance of being unhappy with your skates.
