The only thing I can say is I skated a lot when I was younger, but never owned nice skates. I always rented, but the place in our town back then rented speed skates too. I recently got back into it after about 25 or so years. First night on rentals was tough, and I fell a lot. Went 2 more times on rentals and got better. Decided to buy the nicer skates I always wanted. I spent about $250. It was night and day. I can't believe how much I love it now. It may be placebo, I cannot be sure, but I think the skates I bought were worth it. My wife, the lucky one who is tiny and always can get closeout stuff, got skates much cheaper than I could.
