Hy everyone!

It's almost time to change my boots (Edea Chorus). Not sure about if and when it will happen :scratch2:
Anyway, I've had plenty of time to do some research and I came across a "new" brand (established in 1920 :shocked:)I had never heard about before: Wifa skates.
These boots attract me because I've got wide feet and Wifa stock boots are available in 5 widths at a more than reasonable price.

Check it out:
https://wifa.at/WIFA-Champion-Light-Adults

They're made in Austria, so my question is mainly adressed to european skaters.
Any information or review is welcome.

Thanks

Depending on your skating level you would only be able to really use two stock boots of theirs.

If you are coming out of a Chorus, have you outgrown the boot, or do you need something more advanced or is it just time for new boots (broken in)?

If you are an adult and doing doubles, Champion light is not going to be the way to go. You'd want Champion Reinforced.

I need to change my boots because they're nearly torn apart šŸ˜…
I forgot to mention that skating for me has now become a hobby.
I only jump occasionally because I have to be easy on that ,otherwise my back won't forgive me. For this reason, it took me almost three years to regain my skills.
Honestly I don't think I'll ever go beyond the easiest doubles. That's why I considered the Champion Light to be suitable.
Anyway I checked Wifa's catalogue and I must say you're right.
I'd better go with the Champion Reinforced. Based on their stiffness evaluation, which is very different from other brands, Champion Reinforced seem to be the right choice for me. I'm also on the heavier side (60kg) so the Champion Light could be too soft.
Anyway I think that Edeas are soft too, If compared to other brands.
Thanks for your help.

I agree with Ic3Rabbit due to desiring to jump doubles.

That being said I wouldn't put 60kg on the heavier side.
