Default Hockey Skate Advise Specifically Mission/Tour

I've been wearing Salomon FSK D-Max for about three years and like them tremendously. My son has grown into my shoe size and has taken these over. So I am shopping for a new pair of Salomon FSK's only to find they've pulled out of the inline business. I found Powerslide Cell 2 skates on skates.com. Not in my size though US 12. So I started reading threads here to see if any other skate out there woud do. I have had a lot of trouble with hard shell skates due to the large ankle bones I have. So I generally stay to the soft boot skates. The Seba 1 highs look like what I am looking for but it is impossible to find in the US. I do not want to order from overseas or Canada due to the usual shipping problems/costs. I am considering using Hockey skates to fill that gap, but I haven't kept up W/the fit and style and whether or not they need to be baked. I cannot seem to sort out Missions website to glean any useful info. does anyone out there have any info concerning Mission/Tour skates whether they would be good for freeriding/slalom and whether they need to be baked to get a proper fit? I'm looking at the skates that fall in the 150.00 to 200.00 dollar price range meaning Tour Code Reds 198.00 and Mission Soldier 199.00/DSX 149.00. I have used Missions before and generally liked them ok but mine were the Proto VI's circa 2001. They had to be Baked.

I actually posted this twice. First in the Slalom Freestyle category. I am really just looking for reviews on the current Mission/Tour skates I named. Sorry for any confusion. I just realized I would probably get better responses on those skates here in this forum.

Thanks,
Miles
