Default Pinnacle Long Track Boots?

Hello everyone,

I'm looking to get custom long track boots. I am currently shopping around for boot makers.

I was wondering if Pinnacle still made custom long track boots.

I know a lot of you guys have Pinnacle inline boots. Can anyone tell me their opinion on Pinnacle long track boots?

If you haven't used Pinnacle long track boots I would love to hear your opinion on Pinnacle's inline boots.

Thanks,
Isaiah

Pinnacle inline boots are top notch and if you work with Jimmy on a custom pair of long track boots I am sure they will work well.

Haven't used, but have several teammates that run either full custom or stock boots. All of them love them, especially those on the customs.

Jimmy is great to work with and his work is top-notch.

Thumbs up

I agree with the above comments, Jimmy is great to work with and will build a great speed skating boot. I'm just an average skater and Jimmy took the time to build a semi custom boot for me. IMO Pinnacle is the best feeling boot.

As a disclaimer about why I'm not running a Pinnacle now is that my 10 year old Simmons custom still fits like a glove (for the foot) and performs very well.

If I were to purchase a new full custom now, I would go with Pinnacle for a few reasons: price (lower than Simmons, Kaiser, and Marchese), service (Jimmy is great to work with and is extremely personable and his method of fitting the boots seems to be ahead of where others are), quality (having seen some of the work that he's done and the happiness of the skaters in his product, there's no comparison).

Larry Kaufman is the most recent person that I know of that has ordered them and he's been doing well in them. I just saw on his Facebook page you're tagged in some of the photos he's in. I'd ask him.

Yes I know Larry. We've raced eachother a lot this season and he did great in the ice marathon. I'll be sure to ask him what he thinks.
