Thought I'd put a old school question out there.

What you favorite old (and I mean really old) skate model?

652, 752, 1052

3000, 4000, Comps, Comp 5000 that sort of thing.

I loved my CCM 652 and 1052

What do you think?

For the young guys, Vapor XXX was sweet too

Micron Mega Air 90 and I still wear my Vapor XXX (not 90's but still old school, sorta) today...

It's a toss up between my CCM Tacks 652s or Bauer Supreme Custom 4000's. I think the Tacks looked way cooler, and were what my favorite player Chris Chelios wore back in the day.

CCM 752s where my first and serves me long and well and probably my favorites from back then.

Also liked the Micron Mega Air 90s had for awhile.

I ended up going to 952s, sold them and got 1052s which lasted me for years(with a few years off from hockey) right up until I bought some Reebok 11K whites which then lead me to my current Makos, which are my all time favorites!

Micron/Mega Air 90. They ruined them when they changed them to Bauer's. 

Bure seemed to think so as well.

I might not have the memory or product knowledge from back then, but if I am not mistaken the Micron Mega were manufactured under CAN-STAR (same with the Daoust around that time?) which I believe at the time encompassed Bauer as well, so technically the Air 10-90 Bure wore were Bauer. Again I might be wrong.
