I am a lifelong ice hockey player who started playing inline about 8 years ago. I wore nothing but Bauer for ice and have had the same pair of 5000 composites (ice boot)/Kuzak Pro chasis/76 mm Labeda Grippers since I started inline. Needless to say they have held up incredibly, the boot is still stiff, but the are finally rotting off my feet. I need new skates and have no idea what kind to buy nowadays. Are the new Bauers anything like the old ones? Are there any inline boots that offer the same support/durability as an ice boot, without the weight? I have been looking online at CCM Externo Outcatst, CCM PF8, Mission D2c and Nike Hi-Ho Silver II. Any suggestions. Thanks.
