Comments: I play beer league low C ice hockey and I am using these to train off ice with my boys. I know you donÕt get edge work, but it is still skating, puck handling and shoot practice. The boot is excellent, rigged and good support for entry level. My sneaker size is 10.5, I bought these at 9.0. It is a little tight in the toe box, but I have wide flat feet and couldnÕt afford CCM or Reebok. I read the specs and purchased them anyway, $124 minus 20 %. I wasnÕt going to spend too much on off ice training equipment; to me it was a great deal. The wheels claim to be specifically made for street hockey, we will see. I weigh 240 and time will tell. The laces wonÕt last and I will buy waxed as soon as these go. I love the high low design. I am using them to train off ice, by gaining more skating time and to play with my boys. I bought a pair for both my sons and they love it. Bottom line for the money you canÕt go wrong with this Bauer XR40, formerly Vapor XR1.
As always inlinewarehouse site rocks and delivery was on point, I wish Raleigh, NC had a store. Wink winkÉ
