I am currently looking into getting a new pair of skates. i currently wear a Bauer Supreme 2sPro size 8.5D, i am having issues with the depth of the ankle area of the skate, my inner ankle bone specifically. i have these little ankle socks with silicone pads i wear to even just put on the skates, as my inner ankle bone has gotten so bruised, the ankle pads help, but only so much. i went to my nearest source for sports here in Winnipeg, and tried on a set of pro return True 2-piece custom skates. right out of the gate they fit me surprisingly well, they were hard to get on, and the skate was pretty snug width and depth wise overall, and i had much much more ankle depth which felt great. but i have a few questions regarding the Trues. 1. since they are pro stock, would i still have a warranty on them? they are brand new never used. only reason im asking is because ive heard a mix of good and bad reviews with the durability. 2. Will they form well to my feet if they were built for someone else? 3. What thickness is the step steel on the 2-piece holders? 4. Is the maintenance as important as im reading? ie. taking the footbeds out after every skate, putting them infront of a fan, etc. 5. when baking them, how many times should i bake them? i baked my 2spros 3 different times to get them feeling somewhat okay. 6. does anyone else have any experience with pro stock true skates? if so, how have they been? i have tried ccm skates, and my foot just does not fit in those, at all, even after baking them, i used to wear Grafs and those were so comfy, i have not tried vapor skates, but id imagine id have a similar issue with those as im having with my 2spros. id also rather not drop a grand on vapor skates if i can get these trues for half the price, and they end up fitting me better anyways. Edit*: doing some digging, I have also found that Goaliemonkey.com sells true pro stock skates for about 700$ U.S, reading the reviews off of that, it seems like the skates bake well to other peoples feet, which I guess would make sense considering the way the skate is built. That does bring me some sanity lol. I had also called my local store about warranties, and got some good news. “ the boots have a 90 day warranty, the holders and steel have a 1 year warranty” which is good since I’ve read the rivets like to come loose on these skates! thanks for the read! any help/guidance would be awesome!!
1 Piece vs. 2 Piece TRUE by VH Goalie Skates One of the most common questions we receive is “what are the differences between the 1 piece and 2 piece goalie skates?” Both skates are pro-level and custom made to the measurements of the client’s foot. And both are built with our patented carbon fiber, monocoque design giving more direct power transfers. In terms of differences: 1 Piece: · Design results in zero loss of energy when moving · Neutral pitch · Lower attack angle 2 Piece: · Slightly lighter · Slight forward pitch · Taller attack profile It also bears mentioning that the 2 Piece is typically cheaper than the 1 Piece (check your local fit center for exact pricing).
