View Full Version : Los Stubbies?

FYI, I called hockeygiant.com to try to find out why Gear stuff is so inexpensive; they said it is just their "house" brand. So I assume they are probably made by the same factory/manufacturer as another line, just marketed by hockeygiant. The question is, what factory?! Maybe these are "mishons" or "toors" in disguise! Another thing I noticed (and they confirmed), they only come in "wide" widths. Any of you tejanos have a narrow foot (like me) and a comment on that?

Hey, not bad Spanish...Sorry but I'm from Northern Michigan, just a fat, old guy, with patitas of accordant proportion...
I have told a couple of inquirors that the inner boot padding of the Stubbies is such that a narrower foot will still find a comfortable snugness for good, solid foot/boot bond and energy transfer...nobody has come back to tell me I'm wrong, but this might be a legitimate concern for a higher level player.
I apologize that I'm the wrong guy to ask, as I don't even tighten the bottom four laces on my Stubbies, preferring to have the boot loose through the toes and forefoot, with the instep-to-heel length of the foot providing most of the energy transfer.
I still recommend the model to you, with the reservations/disclaimer as discussed above...
