I didn't as well. Are you talking about speed or art Oberhamer boots?

Default Speed Oberhamer

They had the speed boots in the white and black in different sizes...Try this out.......http://images.google.com/imgres?imgu...icial%26sa%3DN


Hope that works... I went to google and typed in oberhamer and clicked on image. That gave me the picture with the web site and you can search through all the skates!

Default oberhamer

ncsk8rgirl,
That sucks! The only size they have is the 4 1/2? I had absolutely nothing else to do the other day and looked through all the pages LPS had and saw quite a few sizes in different colors. Well the white and black!

Keep one em I guess!

Josh
ps didn't mean to get you all worked up to be disapointed

Okay everybody here is the deal with LPS and the Oberhamers. Luther has an old buddy that has lots of stuff from back in the day. He has a few of the 351's but they are all small people sizes. I think the biggest thing he has is a size 5. I am still keeping in touch with my guy down in GA. He is still pushing forward with his plans to recreate these boots. He has had some set backs with getting all of the patterns completed, but he assures me that he is determined to make this happen. I email him once a month to check on his progress. Like the rest of you I am very anxious to see if he can pull this off.
I have told him time and time again that if he can make them people will buy them as fast as he can make em.

I'll bet they'd be beating down his door, since the 351 was such a popular boot. Like I've said in the past, I wasn't a huge fan of them, but Oberhamer did make a great boot.

Hey Chuck Im gonna hijack this thread for a second but I have to tell ya. I finally found my XL plate...well close enough. I found an Ultimate SST with out the toestop. Its titanium so it actually lighter and stronger than the xl. I plan to mount my 595 on it and I have some brand new american made Cannibals to put on it. Now I can retire and spend my days as the oldest rink rat in Nashville.
Hey Doc....thanks again.....you ROCK!!!!!!

Cool obie boot

I agree these boots are awesome I bought mine in 1980 and still skate with them I have the black diamond plate. I had a major house fire in 1990 and my skates were in it the only thing that got damaged is my old fanjet wheels melted . The rink I work at has a pair of white obies they rent out for speedskates I couldnt believe it

Wow, you have Black Doamond plates that didn't break? These things were synonymous with breaking. Every single person I knew that bought them ended up replacing them.

I, myself, never liked the look of the 351. I didn't see the use for the 2nd set of laces. As for Oberhamer, I had 3 other pairs, a Featherlight, an XL-35 (you'd probably remember these, extremely low cut with the 2" wide white stripe with the flying "O" in gold), and 61BR (my first speed boot).

I miss Oberhamer. They made better boots at that time than Riedell did, IMO.

Man.. Me & the hubby braved the Sat night (spring break, even) session last night since the rink was going to be closed tonight and we would not be able to skate our normal Sun night session.

I'm sitting at the snack bar & I see a blaze of something white that caught my eye.. Right before me is a 11 or 12 year old kid wearing his mothers white oberhamer 351's. They looked pristine! He let me look at the skates and then he was off.

I was forced to endure the torture of watching the kid beat the toes of the boot on the kick plate at the snack bar, the video games, the walls.... I was suffering the entire night! (Did I mention they were MY size?) At one point he was slinging the skates across the floor. I was sick..

I told my hubby that we would now camp out at the rink at closing time on Fri & Sat nights trying to find this kids mother so I can "Rescue" the skates. Hubby asked me if I was going to open a Rescue Group for O's.. lol

I'm still working on those 351s for you bethany. The girl drives a semi-truck, so its hard to catch her when she's home. I still want your pro-lines, so we WILL make a deal when I have them in my posession.

Do I need to put out an APB on her Rig? I'll call the FBI, Homeland Security, ATF, Wackenhut security, etc if it means I can get me some 351's LOL
