|: Your new style skates look a lot better to me than the old ones, but $5 is a damn good deal.
My 265s are my favorites since I can move a lot in them. These hockey ones are MUCH narrower. more comfortable, shorter and much more flexible then any other hockey skate. I hated those other ones after a short while. Couldnt get them snug. I will sell them I think.
I just will probably put the longer/wider plates on my 265s now after I test these to make sure thats what I'm after, thats all. And Riedell is making the heel so it wont slip anymore. The hockey ones are GREAT street skates tho! They are much heavier too which I wouldnt like on ramps not to mention the rigidity at the ankle. I love to bend to move. Man, love these wheels on them, donno what they are though lol. Right now my feet dont hurt at all with them on so I have something rigid to roll with if I am hurt. Just feels great to roll again! :-D One week is toooooo long.
