I broke my old skates and needed new ones within 2 days. These skates were the only skates in the store I went to (not Hockey Giant) that fit me, so I pretty much had no other option. I got them, had them baked, and have loved them ever since. They are very comfortable. The blade paradoxically both stays sharp, but also sometimes seems prone to small sections of dullness, but that could just be a reflection of how I skate or how often I am accidentally stepping on skate-dulling material.
The break-in period was about 3 or 4 ice hours. I didn't have any hot spots on my feet or rubbing or blistering (because they were baked), so the break-in mostly consisted of getting used to a stiffer boot than my old leather skates and a more agressive stance.
I love these skates.
