I bought a cheap pair last month and I have tried to adjust to using them, but no matter how hard I try they are just too cheap. I have gone back to using rental skates for the time being. I have money saved up and can earn more, but just how much should I spend to get a good pair that will work well and last me? I'd rather not waste any more money on skates that are no good. I really do enjoy skating so however much money I spend, it will be worthwhile. Thanks.
