    Yes, it's $649. And that includes any extras. When I got mine 6 years ago, it was $545 (I think) but I had to pay extra for a flex notch, lambswool tongue, rolled top, so I think it came out to $610. So not a huge difference if you'd get several add-ons anyway. But I think they also ask for an additional $20 to cover shipping. You can always include your phone number and ask them to call you for a credit card number.

    Try calling in the morning, like around 9 or 10. I got through to them on Monday.

    I hope they stay open for a few more months. Latest info I've heard is March. My coach tells me I've got at least a year, maybe 2, to go before my skates break down, and I don't really have the means to buy a new pair right now, but if they stay open through the spring/early summer, I might just place an order. Right now, I'm having the tongues replaced.

    Thanks, Debbie! I got a response today. They ask for a $300 deposit first. I don't really need a new pair right now but definitely want a back-up pair once the current boots wear out. Maybe that is why they haven't generated as much business-- their quality is so good that people don't need to replace their boots as often. I sure wish they would stay in business somehow!

    They also rebuild skates when they break down. My first pair were rebuilt once - lasted many, many years.

    So glad to see the update. I love my Klingbeils and my experience with them (via correspondence) was awesome.

    I wish I needed new skates, or I'd get some from them.
