Also, The Riedell representative told me the ice skate boot were stiffer above the ankle. He did not recommend using ice skate boots with roller skate plates.

i wouldnt use them either unless you found a used one at the ice place that is comfortable for you. you should like the 336, it has a lower cut on the ankle in the back though. good luck

Smile I agree with Ric to an entent? LOL!

Ric brought up the point about the 336 being a low cut boot. Kind of like a hi-top sneaker. The 220 is a like a work boot with the leather going much further up the calf of the leg. The 297 follows in the same tradition but is next grade stiffer boot. It's interesting the sales lady sold you on the 336, which is nothing like the 220 or the 297. It's a completely different boot with a completely different purpose? I was told this is a "Dance" boot?

Sincerely,

Larry Otani

After almost seven years of use, I'm convinced the 336 needs a vibram sole. It would make a much better hiking boot. It is definitely well suited for dance. The 297 is Reidell's best all around artistic boot. I look forward to having mine rebuilt.

The only thing I like about the 336 is the light weight and the cork sole.
