Looks like they inverted the colors on a normal skate. And looks awful.

I always liked the LE's that were black personally... But I just stick the less expensive skates so the LE's have always kind of been out my price range.

I like how normal hockey skates are gray and "flashy" ones are white or all black. We're an exciting bunch.

Also, welcome!

That's for someone very confident in their skating skills, or perhaps for someone who's trying to do a modern take on the old green-and-gold Oakland Seals uniforms.

I don't even want to know how bad they will look with some puck marks on them.

thank you! i think they will be quite the distraction when someone first got them. Its like when you get white sneakers they catch your eye every time your eyes move!

I own a pair of regular ONE.9s & I don't like the white version at all. I imagine they would be difficult to keep clean

I'm dating myself here, but they remind of an episode of the original battlestar galactica series:

Nice to look at, but when on the ice, not so much. Puck marks will be a disaster.

I like the way they look, personally... but agree that it wouldn't last. Unless you intend to hang them on a wall and never wear them, they're going to get scuffed real quickly, and they'll look awful then.

I kind of like how white equipment looks with puck marks on it... guess I'm in the minority here lol. This is not to say that I like these skates, though. These things are nasty. I also dislike the Vapor 7.0 LE's that they had out.

if they were all white, not just white and gray (grey? - i never remember) AND you had the skills to back up the flash...maybe... otherwise no, especially after scuffs/puck marks. I really can't say until I can see it compared to the rest of the uniforn either- but my guess for that is also a big fat no.

off-topic but I like the way equipment looks with puck marks on it too
(but not white)- less sterile and like you actually put a lot of use into it.
Then again I like how new equipment looks too... hell, I gues I just like hockey equipment, haha!

Don't love 'em, don't hate 'em. I've seen better all/mostly white skates though.

My team's primary color is white; my skates are white/black and gloves are white w/our other color (royal). I like 'em. I clean the puck marks off once in a while but the toe cap is black and they don't get too trashed as is.

Really like these skates. I always want to have a pair like this. Little bit flashy, but can live with it. But to expensive for me, (sorry, for my wife ;-)). I went with the One80.
