Looking at new boots...

Postby ronnih » Sun Sep 25, 2016 9:19 pm

Hey guys!

I'm looking at buying some new skates soon. The boots I'm looking at are the 495s and the Blue Streaks. Does anyone familiar with either of these have any opinions?

Thanks!

I'm currently skating in the 495s, I'm a size 7 womens if you'd like to try them out. I've used them for the last two seasons and I really liked them. My biggest gripe was that one of my ankle eyelets broke after about a year which made that boot fit loose around the ankle.

I'm also on the 495s. Size 7- the wider fit than Cirque (but not the widest option). You're welcome to try mine also.

I've been in them for two seasons now and they've held up nicely. It took me a minute to break them in, and had some pain to start with, but has all been remedied with insoles.

Mine broke early on too. But I love these skates. I need new ones too
