I have a Bauer 8090s. Love them but they are really getting worn out, looks like i'll have to get a new pair after the spring league

I have two pairs of skates for roller hockey both of them are from Nike/Bauer. I also have a pair of CCM ice skates. I only play roller hockey so I voted for Bauer.

Kor Shift 2 Skates

I think the company went out of business, but they're comfortable as anything.

Graf G35's...not that it matters what kind of skate I use compared to what would fit your foot.

Graf Ultra g70s, left foot feels perfect no matter how I tie it, but my lifelong-annoying right foot has to be tied "just right" or it goes numb... ,but if I make it too loose, my foot will float around and I lose edge control.

I must end up tying my left foot 2x per night of skating, and the right one like 5-6 times...

Graf Goaler Pro 750's.

One of the few modern goalie skates that still have a full-sized cowling... which can matter when you play a hybrid style, not full butterfly. They also fit my weird foot shape... I just can't get Bauers or RBKs to fit properly.

I also have an old pair of Sherwoods that I use for pond skating and the rare time I play out. They fit good, but they're entry level skates... I wouldn't be blocking shots in those.

bauer vapor x:05s, size 4.

i'm not a kid, and i don't really have freakishly small feet..

they seem great so far but a bit bendy and i don't really like whatever the tongue is made out of. it's ugly and has gotten all crappy

I have the exact same problem with my grafs also. I thought it was a insole problem, but it turns out that was not the problem and my feet still get numb even with new insoles.
