Alpine passed on the first Nimh skate, but we jumped on this second version. It is the Cult shell with the toe box cut out for extra room. It has its own full soul plate and it comes stock with Ground control formula one frames. The Vicious liners are fur lined and they are wicked comfortable. The skates run about a 1/2 size small.
The laces on the front of the skate actually do something. You can feel the skate tighten by lacing them.
The buckle protector is extra beefy, so it looks like it will actually work. It of course come with vicious bearings as well. Stop by and try a pair on. You will not be disappointed.
