The true question here is, what style will you be skating mostly?

That would determine how much control and balance you need, and where...

Reason being, jamskating in its entirety is substantially more difficult to be precise in an art boot. (Tried it, felt next to impossible, not to mention the added weight)

Inversely, soul/JB/rhythm skating is about physically impossible to make look right in speed skates. (Tried that one too, several times over)

It truly does depend on what the majority of your intent (style) is.

It's like comparing a top fuel dragster to a car built for autocross. Different designs, different uses...

I'd get a speed boot with a slightly taller heelblock. Best of both worlds!

Just my .02...
