Look in the equipment reviews forum, and if it's not there ask about the models you're looking at.

But before you start looking fro reveiws, start by going to a shop and getting fitted. The best skate in the world will be worthless if it doesn't fit right.

I've been looking for a good review place too. The only problem with Mod Squad is that they only set up the reviews for the top of the line equipment. So as long as you're buying the top of the line stuff it's great but if you're going for anything below that they aren't really much help in my experience.

Oh, you're looking at roller. Mission is a reputable brand, skates are reportedly quite narrow.

And hockeyus sometimes is iffy, they mostly just hold the gear and feel it, no different from what you could do in store. They don't usually have a great hold of the longer term aspects like durability that you would want to know about.

And Modsqaud is filled with industry insiders and serious obsessives. If you don't see a review, just ask about it in the appropriate forum. You've got a better chance then you do on Hockeyus, which has no mission roller skates at all.
