Another gem from JR's custom shop

Recommended Posts

Thanks for NBH for making these early -

Custom ONE95s for Drewhunz - I did the measurements/traces for him in my apartment when he was up here for the MSH skate. 11.25/11.5 EE/B.

Features include: double-stitched with tan Clarino liner, extra length felt tongue with ONE90 lace-bite protector, 3mm leg length discrepancy lifts on the right skate (you freak!) and Tuuk C+ (will be switching to PITCH3 - since the hole pattern is the same I went ahead and had them drill the holes.)

those are gems man... I'd really like to go about getting a custom skate but I feel it would be pretty hard to find someone around here who could do a good job

anyways, love the extra length tongue

He wanted regular Clarino instead of the hydrophobic. He plans to go barefoot in them. Personal preference.

What was the price difference going into custom or does it vary on what goodies you get added in?

And, on a completely different topic why do they call it a watermark?

and ignore the first comment i didnt read the writing at the top i went straight to the pictures, and you can choose the stiffness if you go custom?

No, custom skates are one price.

I used to charge $75 for custom on top of the skate price.

Really, thats not bad. Too bad i didnt join this site last year, since I travelled through Michigan in the summer, I could of got my skates fitted at your shop.

/facepalm

I'm actually kind of wishing i lived in the states, and its not even for baseball now.

i am contemplating a flight up to Detroit. Needless to say, the picture is making me somewhat impatient. JR can attest to that.

I can't believe he managed to hold in the mouthful of puke. Gots a figure skater sharpening my skates now. While still not great, I'm not seeing my blades getting the banana profile any more than they already were.
