Constructed using sublimated nylon, the 12K Skates are made with the intention of having a long life. You won't need to worry about going out and buying new skates in a few months. Featuring a cool, comfortable brushed nylon liner, the 12K Skates feature a 5 millimeter high-density fabrication tongue that will enhance your fit and improve your overall control. Most importantly, the tongue is very durable and can take on any punishment that a young player can dish it. The 12K Skates are stocked with Reebok Customlite R30 cowlings and a replaceable steel runner that will hold a long edge. The cowling features a lightweight, pro-profile moisture exhaust vent and butterfly toe shield for maximum comfort and protection. The trilite cutouts at the heel also help decrease overall weight to improve foot speed.
