vincentamericanpie's review of EDEA Ice-Fly Skate

★☆☆☆☆

“they are light but so stiff that you cannot feel edges...”

Written on: 30/09/2011 by vincentamericanpie (1 review written)

Most skaters have told me that these boots are so light: you should try them. Looking at them, I personally find them so much hockey-designed boot which Edea has tried to embellish by adding rhinestones; still, they look like unreal skating boots at first sight (which I did not like at all). However, some sales people managed to convince me that I should try them --- they are the newest product, they are great --- so,I decided to try them. Nasty on my wallet. had to buy new blades as the edeas are made smaller. trying them on the floor, they felt comfy with good padding but skating in them is another story. I could not skate at all as they are super strongly overstiffed boots; I had to hang on to the barriers like adult beginners!!! I wore them at home trying to make them more supple and adapted to my feet^^^^ naaah, nothing changed the next day, still overly stiff in every single word SSSTTTTIIIIIFFFFF AND RRROOOOUUUUGGGGHHHH**** MAYBE edea think that senior boys and girls hammer into the ice to get good jumps. sometimes, my skater friends think edea's had no clues what skating is all about. Bottomline, any skater cannot feel edges as they are definitely glass type feel boots filled with sponges inside.I could not skate in them decently I was falling camel spins and sit spins, even after 1 month of intensive training; toughed it out though my feet were so sore.
after all this trauma, I gave out those boots and went back to Graf.
good luck; it is not worth the risk . Do not listen to sales people, ask skaters who will give you their lived experiences. do not risk it out. it is not worth a dime.
