The flex is somehow in the tongue. You have to tie them differently than regular boots. I only have gel pads on my inside ankle bones. Otherwise I've had no sore spots at all. They are light too...almost like tennis shoes but with really good support. I'm a fan and can see why so many elite skaters have made the switch. I think they are a little ugly but who cares when they make skating so fun and pleasant!
    thanks for the feedback! i'll need to find a dealer in the la area. don't feel comfortable ordering over the internet without some sort of fitting

    I wear custom Klingbeil. They have pretty much zero break-in period. (In the past, I've used Riedell, Harlick, SPTeri, Jackson, and Risport. ) I've never had skates be so pain-free from the beginning. I'm on my second pair. And they last forever. I had the first pair for 8 years.

    Yeah. Not a fan of Risport. I had a pair for several years. Although the fit was amazing, they were deceptively stiff and I was in utter pain for a good year. They're still not broken down--and I'm hard on skates. The soles eventually rotted out and because of the way they are constructed, the soles can't be replaced.
