Getting Used To The Skates
I’ve been using my VH Skates for roughly 3 months, after skating on them 5+ times a week I can safely say these are the most comfortable pair I’ve ever owned! Had them moulded just one time and now they fit like the Hockey Gods themselves had them specially crafted for my feet. The only negative comment I’ve heard about the skates is their price-point, which is on par with almost all other top of the line competitors
These will run you roughly $900-1200 when all is said and done
I would argue that VH Skates are heavily UNDER-valued in todays current skate market as no other company is offering something totally custom that the everyday consumer can order and wear in 4 weeks. Think of it this way, you’ve signed a pair of skates to a 10 year contract and you’re paying 100 a year… not so bad?
You might be wondering what makes this skate so custom? simply put, it’s the measurements they take of YOUR feet. Not you’re feet fellas, YOUR FEET. I went into a local shop and they traced the outline of my feet, measured the widest point, longest point and a specific length around my foot starting from the top where shin/foot meet and ending at the back of the heel where the heel has its largest “bulge”. The last measurement was so that my foot would be held snug in the boot even without lacing the skates up. They then took some tasteful nude photographs of my feet, they do this incase you have weird calcium deposits or bumps on your feet that could cause discomfort. Another way all this can be done is by them scanning your foot and getting a digital version of all the measurements, exact same outcome.
Durability With Style

DO NOT GET 99 ON YOUR SKATES
Wick liner. I opted for the Tan Marino inside as I’ve heard its more durable than the black wick line, have had 0 problems.
innovation (and hopefully affordability) in the game of hockey!
Could you see yourself in a pair of VH skates?
