  1. No particular order 1. Micron Mega Air 10-90 - Cool looking and comfortable skate 2. CCM 852 Tacks - think Niedermier's model 3. CCM PRO Tacks 4. Bauer One90 - went from pro stock CCM tacks to these felt like they weighed about half as much. First skates for me that gave me a "holy sh!t" reaction first spin on the ice. 5. VH/TRUE - first skates that truly fit my feet

    That was my initial thought as well- "Nice hoodie. Oh wait, that's the jersey? "

    It is if it's just kydex sheet and double sided tape.

    Ask STEP!

    If there was an agreement for compensation there wouldn't have been a lawsuit...

    Meh, I've always thought white trim/uppers can look cool when done right (Think Micron Air 90's. I wanted a pair of Christian Dube's white trimmed 952's back in the day. I've seen some True skates at the NHL level that have just the top area of faux leather done in white- looks good. The Graf "Great White" models were just too white.

    LS2 Steel to LS5

    Also possible the first sharpening was subpar, and didn't fully establish both edges.

    Ccm tacks skate blades

    The finish on the CCM's is oxidized. It doesn't affect performance at all, scratched or not. If you are unhappy with the performance, Step is always a solid choice for replacement steel.

    Ccm tacks skate blades

    Not ruined, but your sharpener used a stone on the sides and damaged the cosmetic finish on the blades.

    Fix it by Mail?

    If there is a tracking number on the shipment you may be able to ontercept/redirect the package before delivery. Contact the carrier you used to ship.

    The Venting Spot

    We added a dog to our family two weeks ago. It's been an adjustment to say the least. Up at 4:15 this am as he thought it was time to eat.. First week we were up at 2:30 every day, so I'm hoping there's some additional improvement. The lack of sleep is killing me. Forgot my skates last night- had to play in a pair of rentals a size too small. Good times.

    Why don't manufacturers use Poron or D30 in skates?

    And/or marketing

    I would try removing and repositioning the tongue slightly.
