Well I finally got a good look at the new Nike skate in the USA Today
the other day. Up until  now I got just fleeting glimpses of them on
Fedorov on TV.   MY GOD ARE THEY FREAKIN' UGLY OR WHAT!!!!!!
Does anybody have a clue what Nike expects to charge people to buy
them?

I'd heard around $500 back when Feds debuted them at the All-Star game. I
wear Mega Air 90's and I used to think those were ugly until I saw those!

They are probaly going to charge quite a bit, and I've played hockey for a
while now and there is no way in hell I would where those Nike Figure Skates!

Sundin uses a pair that are entirely black except for a white swoosh
symbol on the heel. I'd consider wearing those. On the other hand I'd
have to sign the same fat contract Fedorov did to wear those grey and  
white "moon boots." But then again what goalie wears brown pads anymore?
Pretty soon they'll become commonplace. Has anyone seen the Bauer Air
90's?

I've seen the Bauer Air 90's. They don't look as bad as the Nike skates,
but then again, nothing does. It's a pity that Nike had to buy Canstar. I
was quite content to play a sport with no swooshes involved, but oh well.
All Nike equipment, except skates, are Cooper pads with a swoosh on them
along with an extra 50 or so for price. You would think Nike would at
least be original enough to come up with their own pads.

 Nike also has another skate.  Trditional black with a white swoosh on
the side.  I saw Mats Sundin wear them during pre-season, not sure if he
still does.  Personally, I think the ones that Mats has are pretty cool!

Why support an organization that relies on child labour to make its
products, sells them at *huge* profits, and conducts such negative ad
campaigns?  Nike in Atlanta was chilling.  Yah, I know this isn't the
place, but someone brought the Nike name up.  Pun intended.

I would have to agree that eventually they'll be relatively commonplace.  
Styles always change and even though some traditionalists will always
want thing to stay the same, they won't.  Not that being a traditionalist
is bad, it's just the way things are.  The skates are very different, but
I don't think they look that bad.  I would also like to note that from
what I can see around here, I think that the kids around here would all
like to have Nike skates.  I don't know if Federov's Nike skates will
ever be commonplace, but I would bet that some form of Nike skate will be
very common/popular.
