Comments: I got these skates a little over a month ago as a step up from my X:15s. Onething I noticed when I first used these is my skating technique, which I felt gotten better. I felt faster, probably since I was using a higher quality skate than my previous pair. I also feel like my sharp turning has gotten a lot better as well. I pretty much love these skates to death!
