Default Oberhamer Speed Boot

I am in need of a Oberhamer speed boot, my friend is looking for it doesn't know what number it is but it has the flame in the middle of the foot. If anyone has any idea or has a pair for sale drop me a line. Women's size 8. Thank you in advance.

If it's a shorter boot that has a wide white stripe down the center of each side, containing the Oberhamer "O" that has a flame extending from it, the boot is the XL-35.

If this is indeed the boot, good luck finding it, since they stopped producing these boots in the early to mid 80's and Oberhamer is no longer in business.

Tell your friend to hang tight. I know of someone that is in the process of retooling the old Oberhamer 351's and 641's. He says he should have all of the patterns cut by the New Year and ready to start making new boot based on these great classics. I should have one in hand in a few weeks to try out. I will be spreading the word after I have a chance to skate on them. If they are as good as old Roy's boots he is going to make a lot of people really happy.

Your not kidding that he will make a lot of people happy (I would be included). I have been needing a new pair of skates, an Obie replica boot would be nice.

I will send my source an email and get a time frame on this new boot. He is supposed to come to Nashville in March but I hope he can send me a pair before then. Once I have a pair and get a chance to skate on them. I will put a review of them on every message board out there.

Talked to my boot man. He says the first one should be finished in the next week. He is coming to town in March and I hope he will have mine made at that time. He is hoping that he can start taking orders by the end of March first of April.

XL, any chance your contact can make an old Featherlight replica? That was far and away my favorite boot, especially the 1/2" thick foam on the tongue.

Unfortunately, it was made of kangaroo and the inner developed holes really quickly.

Chuck I agree with you that was also my fav. I pulled the heel off of it though. I have asked him to make me a 641 without the extra straps. That should be very similar to the original featherweight.
Did I tell you about the boots I found for my 9 yo daughter. I found her a brand new 351 and a brand new featherweight. She is set for the next 2 - 3 years with brand new oberhamer boots to skate in.

That's a good find! I was never a fan of the 351. I always thought it was ugly, with the lace routing that it had.

As for the Featherweight, I actually pulled the heel off of mine as well. I have flatter feet, so that made the boot much more comfortable.

I also had a pair of Oberhamer 61BR (I think that was the model) that I did the same to.

Default found em

www.lowpriceskates.com claims to have NEW old school oberhamer boots! They are cheap in price! A size 12 is $130.00 just for the boots!

I loved those boots! I still have my size 6 in white! I put a lot of miles on those boots!!!! I'm not in need of a new boot, but thought about buying it just to have it in my size!!!!!

This is the e mail sent back to me after I questioned the boot...............

The Oberhamer boots on the site - are the boots from back in the day - but I don't think the tongue's are really that thick, yes they do have padding though.

Thanks

Low Price Skates

Has your friend got any in production?
