: I have to admit that I didn't know a thing about the specifics of goalie skates. Your idea doesn't sound too bad to me, so why not give it a try? You're bound to learn lots of things you never would have thought of.
I doubt I'll get to try it myself. Skates my size are usually a special order item, let alone finding goalie skates that fit. Any used skates my size usually come up only because the previous owner has passed away. (Us big people can't afford to get rid of things that fit :))
