Well, this probably isn't the right board to post this on, but I need new skates STAT and I need opinions from my fellow players.
My current pair of skates ripped at the boot where the chassis connects. You can probably guess what brand they are.
Anyways, I'm looking at the CCM PF8's and the Tour Beemer's as replacements. I tried the Tour G90's a few years ago, and they absolutely KILLED my arches, even after trying to break them in for weeks. I had to resell them. I've never worn CCM except as an ice hockey skate.
So my questions are this:
Is the Beemer boot like the G series boot? Can I expect the same pain in the arch?
How much breakin time is required for each model? I know I can bake, but are either of the skate models better "out of the box?" Especially coming from Missions, which by all I read I probably won't be wearing again anytime soon. I need to be ready to go on these things in 2 weeks max.
