First pair of real hockey skates that I bought for my son were used Junior Tacks.  I paid $25.00 for them.  His son's new pair cost $900.00, yesterday.

Yikes! That's just crazy. And unnecessary in many ways.

 

As a kid I always had the best skates, new. My family wasn't wealthy but my dad understood that a proper fitting (at least 1, more likely 1-2, sizes smaller than shoe size!) and good quality skate was critical. So I had them.

 

But as an adult I came to learn that a pair of good used ones was just as good. I have not bought new skates since I was 20. I buy the best used pair I can find. People think it's crazy to spend $200 on a used pair of skates, but will spend $200 on an average pair of skates. That's a mistake in my opinion.
