New Skates

To Beat a dead horse, lets get another Skate thread going....

10 months ago i broke my ankle (oblique on the fibula at the lowest point on the ball of the ankle) originallly i was going to get a new skate right away, but decided to wait until the swellling went down and see how my current skates faired. I am now playing with a wrap in my skate as precaution, and since the swelling is gone now and i have rehabbed pretty well, i am planning to start playing without the wrap. I have 652 tacks, and for my B-day the Wife said to just go out and get myself new skates. Isn't she great?

Anyway prior to breaking i was complaining to her that i was having issues with the bridge of my foot since it is so wide. Even when i keep the skate loose, it tends to cramp and get sore midway through the second period. I know CCM typically has the wider skates. Note, my current 652's are not the wides.

I am not looking to break the bank, so anywhere in the $180-$300 range would be great. Any recommendations as to which skate i should go try on in regards to wider bridge area and ankle support would be appreciated. Right about now i know a lot of the stroes have last this past years models on clearance, so i may get lucky with some really nice skates at a fair price.

Look at the 2007 CCM V10.0's. They're a great quality skate (I had two pairs) and they fit my wide foot (they also come in E widths, if necessary). Even though they're a top-end skate, they're on clearance now that the U+ is on shelves. Obviously, everyone will have their own opinion as to which skate you should go with. For your price range though, and the fact that you've already been skating in CCM's, I think it would be difficult to beat the Vector 10.0's.

Not sure what size foot you have but there's still a fair amount in stock at hockeymonkey.com

thanks,

I think i will check them out. I actually think i will have to spend a few hours trying on a bunch for a decent amount of time. Who knows, maybe i'll try the one90's on too.
