Default alkali ca7 review

just jad my first skate in them today, no bake, i skated from 12 to 830 with a break for lunch, at first i had normal break in pains with no blisters! the wheels were a bit slpppery at first but by my game at 7 they were very grippy! i love them, the chassis is phenomenal coming from the vanguard set up i like this 1000000 times more, the out sole has amazing power transfer, better than my previous rx60 skates i think. the boot could have been a touch stiffer but i still love it, the fit is perfect for me, my only complaint is lace bite, that is the only down fall i have found, and when i say lace bite i mean lace BITE they really bite but they are a great skate overall

Man that is a bummer, I was eying these for my next skate. It looked like there was metatarsal guard like the Bauers have that might have helped prevent lace bite.

I'm assuming the lace bite was too much and that is the reason for selling?

Thank you for reviewing these and posting your experiences.
