Default What are Deshi's worth?

Hi!
How much does Deshi skates usually cost, new and used?
Are they good skates?

What is the differences between the different models?

What are their shell size (for exemple, shell1 for size 8 and 9, size 2 for 10 and 11, etc.) ?

I am asking this especially for the Dk3 model

used deshi are really iffy. Deshi skates are known to wear out very quickly in the ankle cuff area leaving you without support.

If your interested in deshi I would go with the CH1 or wait for the carbons. The older skates dk3 kicks spizer etc. are not very long lasting skates.

The shell sizes for old skates are each size. There are no shell. The CH1s are diffrent.
1.(7-8) 2.(9-10) 3.(10.5-11) 4.(12-13)

Hoped that helps.

Ok, thanks for your answer. I don't think I will go for these skates because I wear 11-11.5 and this shell sizing isen't very good for me, I need a 11-12 shell size like Roces.

I can't believe I've gotten the only two pairs of non floppy Deshi's in the world

Also, that shell sizing is good for the DK4's through CH1's. All the skates in between had removable liners, not just the CH1's.
