If you're looking for a quality skate but do not want to spend a king's ransom, the Graf Supra 135S Ice Skates are right up your alley. This skate is designed with the beginner player in mind. With a moderate- to deep-fitting style, the Supra 135S Ice Skates have thermolam reinforcements throughout the boot, allowing you to heat mold the skate to better form to your feet. This will eliminate the long process of breaking in skates. The Supra 135S Skates also are constructed with Molded Nylite quarters, giving you added protection along the sides of your feet. Your ankle is well protected, as the single-density foam gives you support and keeps the sting away from when pucks bounce off your ankle.
