  1. I’m a fairly tall goalie and weigh just under 200 pounds and I have been using 5/8ths my whole hockey career. Recently I’ve found my skates bite a bit too much but I’m not sure what cut would suit me best. Open to any recommendations.
  2. 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!!
  3. I'm in the market for new skates and I'm interested in the True two-piece and Bauer 2xPro's. I've been leaning True as my left foot is about a full size bigger then my right and trying to get skates that fit and feel comfortable on both feet has always been an issue. That would probably be solved with True's, but I've heard lots of durability issues with them. I've seen a lot of conflicting thoughts on them. Next year I'm playing high level U15 and I'll be skating 6+ times a week when the season starts (hopefully) so they will take a beating. I've always worn Bauer skates so I'm a bit hesitant to change. I've never had any huge issues with Bauer skates besides some ankle pain and an awkward fit. The tech on the 2xPro's looks pretty sick and seems like a great skate I'm just thinking the custom boot from True is more up my alley. If I go with True, I was thinking I'd go with the Vertex holder as it would give me some familiarity to a Bauer skate. If anyone can tell me about their experience with True's or 2xPro's I'd highly appreciate it. Also if you had True's please touch on the durability and the holders.

  7. I used to use Superfeet, the yellow hockey ones and then the newer yellow hockey carbon version. They worked pretty well, definitely an upgrade over the stock insoles, but they were lacking some arch structure and I would still get some foot soreness every few games. Decided on the Speed Plates because they were supposed to mold to your foot and then be a more rigid support. Even though the Superfeet (especially the newer hockey carbon model) have a rigid piece through the arch area, it's really still part of the heel cup support more than anything Baking The guy at PHL baked them for me in store, but it was right at closing and he kind of rushed the process. There were a couple wrinkles along the inside edges that I sort of felt, but may have just been cosmetic. Decided to re-bake them at home. That process was super easy, follow the directions on the package, the black lines on the arch disappear when they are at the right temp, slip them in your skates, lace them up, 5 minutes sitting, 10 minutes standing (only got 5 and 5 in store) and you're good. Fit and feel When they are cooled, they just feel like a hard plastic, so more structure than Superfeet, but didn't seem like it would be all that comfortable. The material on top is a pretty standard fabric with some grip lines at the toes. But it turns out that works pretty well when the overall structure is molded to your foot. I haven't had any arch pain or noticed any feeling like I wished I had some extra cushion. Nothing scientific in terms of energy transfer in pushes and all that, just very satisfied with the product. There's a 2.0 version with what looks like upgraded materials on top and bottom (last pic), will probably look into those when I figure out my next set of skates.
