Comments: I've skated close to 150 times in my CA9's so far. They are hands down the best skate I have worn. I was extremely hesitant to buy initially because I'm a big guy playing at a high level. My boot usually breaks down quickly. Not the CA9's. Perfect amount of stiffness. If you bake them properly, the heat moldability of the boot is amazing. They are perfectly formed for my wide feet. Also, the aggressive pitch keeps you on your toes, helping with that extra pop. I think the only complaint I had is the tongue seeming to break down and fall apart quickly. Maybe random..but still something. Other than that, amazing skate and I'm very impressed with the first entry from Alkali

Comments: Nice contouring boot that's about it. I Baked them for 9 minutes, its been about 8 games and 8 practices and the boot is still stiff. The heel is way to narrow and I have a narrow heel and foot. The tongue is to short and very flimsy, it does not hug the top of the foot well. I switched from Mission SR Boss skates and went from high-low to all 80's, huge difference in agility and comfort in the skate. High end strip down car is what I would call the Akali skates, where the Mission's are like a comfortable caddy. I rate the skate a 6.5 out of ten, I expect more from the former creators of mission. Oh I forgot to mention within the first ten minutes of skating the front wheel hub dislodge from the bearing, lucky I had an extra set of wheels. Akali did replace it within 5 days. T10's here I come!
