Comments: I personally feel that five wheels might be one too many, but I was on a budget. Other than that they work pretty well for me. There's a difference in the picture. When I got the skates they have black and green laces, not white ones. Plus, I would wear thick socks with these.

Comments: Great skates! having 5 wheels is a hassle for buying new wheels/bearings but it has a nice amount of control front to back on the skate for creeping up/back. They ride very similar to aggressive inline skates. I like the solid inside plastic for pushing also. the bearings they come with are good quality and quiet, but you can't remove the shields to clean or lube them well.

Comments: Comments:To answer Jacks question about sizing, these skates run a size large so if you wear a 10 order 9. I ordered half size smaller but wear extra thick socks to make up difference.

Comments: For anyone who has bought these skates: The website recommends going a size below your normal shoe size. Is that accurate? I wear a size 10 shoe, but depending on the skates, I can fit into a 9 or 10.
Comments: Awesome goal skate for the money, great feel and response. Labeda wheels rock, boots fit well, didnt bake them and they broke in fast! IW is the best, unbelievable customer service! This skate from this company is a no-brainer for anyone getting into the net, or looking for some fresh skates.

Comments: Ordered these from inline warehouse and received them in 2 days, in time before my next game! Great service. Like i said, played first game in them with no break in time. First impressions, the boot is much higher than my bauer goalie skates were, so it bit me near the bottom of the inner calf my first use. Maybe laced to tight. Also wheels are a little larger which made me feel higher up. But after the first skate, they broke in very nice. Very comfortable after just one use!Great support and seem durable, only used 16 times.They have improved my game and I would def recommend.

Comments:Got these from IW a couple weeks ago, played 4 games with them so far. Great skates, boot is a little high for my taste and lace bite at the top of the ankle was hellacious for the first 2 games. I decided to skip the top eyelet and wrap around the boot - lace bite is gone and they feel more comfortable like my ice skates. This is my first pair of goalie inlines and Ive been using the stock wheels with no issues so far. Cowlings seem to be holding up well. Very stiff boot (which i love) but very comfortable and no blisters at all - the lacebite was the only issue. And free 2 day shipping? Right on, IW.
Comments:These skates are fantastic. My game improved almost instantly after putting them on. The hard foam on the tongue really make sthese extremely comfortable by getting rid of the lace bite. Great skate at a great price.
Comments:First off, great customer service by IW after 2 weeks of backorder. The skates arrived the day after they were shipped. Thanks to everyone who helped. Now the skates. Im upgrading from the Tour Redline 5000's that ive had for 2 years. Used the G1's in my game last night and i was very impressed. It took some time getting used to a new stiffer boot, but after throwing in some Superfeet i had laying around, they felt very good. I wont need to bake them (not sure if that is even an option) and my feet didnt hurt at all. They offer tons of support and most of my problems with the Redlines have been taken care of with the G1's. Lacebite was my biggest issue and cowling wear was another concern. I believe the new cowlings will hold up much longer. Didnt even bother with the wheels, put on my Hyper Virtue wheels instead. The stock wheels are very hard... and white. WHY WHITE!?!?! Anyways, im very very impressed with the skate, i know it will hold up for a long time and i know it will be a definate improvement over the Redlines.
