Default Yep

NettRacing.com/used

And I have a pair of Luigino Struts size 11 US that I will sell for $100 plus ship. They are in mint condition you would have a hard time telling that they were ever worn.
Also, Strut sizing is off by one full size so these will fit a size 10 or even a 9-12.

I bought them new and tried 3-4 times but they are not the correct last for me.

Check out NettRacing.com on struts. I bought from Richard...

Thanks for the response
Yeah, I know about that site.
Thought there might be a marketplace here too.
Pretty slim pickings on nettracing
Would really like a pair of high end boots without the price tag and don't mind if they are used

I have a very good to near mint condition used Cado Motus Pro IV 13.3" (firm), 4 x 110mm frame set I can part with for $100 plus shipping.

They have a few small flecks of paint missing on the inside graphics from outdoor skating. The outside graphics are almost flawless - see pics

What size skate boots do you need?

I have Luigino Bolt skate boots size 8 which have little use and are in good condition that I'd let go for $150

The liner is in very good condition, no wear marks or holes. I did heat mold the toes and stretch the shape to a less severe curvature to better fit my little toes. I had first tried to stretch the little toe area with a Hoke (ball and loop) boot stretcher which caused the glossy "pleather" finish to crack in the area where it was stretched. Kind of looks like scuffs only they are not scuffed.

Btw, the Cado frames were used with the Luigino Bolt skates. Both saw little use because I developed a nasty case of Peroneal Tendonitis and low cut speed skates would exacerbate the injury as the cuff edge would hit the thickened tendon with each outward push.
I am now in a "marathon boot", K2 Mod 125, and hope to get back into doing paceline speed workouts with the pack this season.

Honestly, unless you have had the boot and are replacing it, have tried the particular boot model prior, find a local seller or can meet the seller at an inline marathon, I'd advise against buying used. Most sales will be final and close fit, i.e., support is critical in a speed boot. There are too many fit areas which could be out of the wiggle room of heat molding to buy blind. Much safer bet to save money elsewhere such as on the frames, wheels and bearings. YMMV

skateNOW has a skater2skater consignment page for used goods. like most used pages, it's hit n' miss, and changes constantly.

Apart from the "buy and sell used skates" section near the bottom of the main forum list on this very website?
