Default Kayser Custom Boots

So, I've seen on FB and Instagram a few skaters on Kaiser boots... Some good looking stuff and some very interesting building concepts. They guy looks like a hard working meticulous detailing guy... anyone knows about Kaiser boots enough to make a "review" here?

- sorry I can't help with that request.
FWIW, most of the serious speed skaters in my neck of the woods who have already gone the custom skate route eventually end up using Pual Marchase -

I watched Al do a molding for a pair of custom Kaiser boots at the Easter meet this past April. He uses 2 large boxes for the castings. It was interesting.

I know a few people that have his customs and love them.

As for Marchese, one of my teammates and one of the guys I compete against have their customs and love them as well.

Pancho, have you really exhausted all of your options w/ the custom Simmons boots? I'd hate to think that you paid $1400-$1600 for a pair of boots that you're not going to use.

He's been doing that same type casting for 20 years.

I've never had one personally but there are the plenty that are loyal to Al that love his boots. The only negative I've heard is he the wait time. He was like 6 months at one point.

I'll stick with my Pinnacle.

That actually does not sound too unreasonable. When I was looking into customs I was told the average wait time for Marchese is a year, possibly closer to two around years approaching a winter Olympics!

We have a few skaters on my team that have been on them for about a year. What Jessie said about the lead time is accurate. Feedback is they're very comfortable, excellent ankle support, heavier than most customs, quality is excellent and only one row of mounting holes. He does ask you what frame you're planning to skate on and what fore to aft placement preferences.

I had forgotten about this. For someone like me, I couldn't use this type of boot, since I swap frames what some would consider often, especially for my indoor boots (4x110 and 3x125).
