Default Freestyle Boots?

I was curious what brands of boots everyone uses and or likes? I've only used Riedell boots and although they're pretty amazing, I find that they offer little support after having been broken down after a year...
My coach swears by Harlicks but my wallet cries at the sight of the prices.

depends on what type of jumps u are going, singles, doubles, triples? today seems like many skaters are going with edeas. fly is stiff but many like it anyhow. its really a preference thing.

Starting double jumps. Edea's do seem more popular, but I just don't particularly care for the look of the boots themselves

I should also I guess include my skating boot now. I went from a silver star(we weren't sure as I bought used and the boot was old) to a 297,which is what I have now.. Definitely preferred my older boot as it was more supportive.

10 years ago a majority of the world class mens singles skaters used riedell 1972, maybe a bit longer then that lol. doesnt seem to be the boot of choice anymore. the silver star is a thick heavy almost ice like boot now unless u get the old ones from 90s or before i think. just get something your comfortable with.
