I would not recommend my boot (very stiff), which is a gold star (Riedell 375). Probably a better boot would be the Riedell 297 (Professional). It is a bit cheaper and from what I hear, very easy to break in and comfortable. I liked the 220 from when I was younger, but I had a heck of a time breaking them in. Blisters galore, but it handles nice once broken in.

But as they say, measure twice, cut once!

So, glad all of you are having fun. I cannot wait to go to an actual practice and watch some skaters. Also, it has been so much fun connecting with 2 people that I skated with back in the 70's. I really appreciate this website, Kathy!
