Comments: Switched from Bauer One70 to this skate, and couldn't be happier. I was having arch pain and felt like the boot wasn't the most comfortable with bauer. This skate is absolutely amazing, day one feels like a stiff but very comfy boot. Very responsive, and I LOVE the pump system. Works very very well. This is the best skate in this price range in my opinion. Lace lock system is also a huge plus.

Comments: I have had tremendous difficulty finding a stiff lightweight skate with the volume to accommodate my 13 EEEE shoe size. I tried Bauer Supremes only to have my feet continually placed in vice grips (not nearly wide enough). I have been skating in the old Easton SE16 skates for about 3 years and they fit me like a glove but they are getting worn out. I tried Easton EQ50s in 11.5 EE and loved the performance but they were way too tight. I then made the mistake of going with Reebok 14K skates in an 11.5EE because they seemed to fit well in the local hockey shop. However, I quickly realized you can't go from a high level skate to a mid level skate and sacrifice the support. I planned to buy the Reebok 18K skates but after much reading and consultation with the extremely helpful staff at IW I went with the Reebok 17K in an 11.5 EE. I can honestly say they feel better than any other skate I have put my foot in. They have the volume I need to keep my foot from cramping, the
y have the lateral stiffness I need to keep from rolling over, they are every bit as responsive as any other skate I have tried on and they are reasonably priced for what they are. If you do your homework you will see they are a poor man's 20K with the stuff you don't really need stripped away for a several hundred dollar savings. I would highly recommend these skates not only for their value but for the fantastic service I received from IW!!!
