So now I'm thinking about getting this years 9K whites with the classic felt tongues, but they have to be ordered so I cant see them in person for another 3 weeks. So I have a few questions and hope you can help me:
Are the felt tongues on the 9K whites really like the thick classic bauer/Graf style tongues or are they just like the regular 9K tongues with a thin white felt layer?
If they are thick felt, are the white 9k boots deeper to compensate the thicker tongues?
Next guestion: Theres a new 8K white skate (euro only), I didnt see this skate in person yet (again..3 weeks) but i guess its probably like the 2008 RBK 7K model. Sooo.. what do you guys think of the 7K skate or, if you saw them yet, the euro 8Ks? I know the 9Ks are made in Canada and the 8Ks in China, any other differences? Is it worth to spend about 40% more for the 9Ks? 350 for the 8Ks, 550 for the 9Ks...
