Jonas Hiller – MLX Goalie Skates
Jonas Hiller has been spotted wearing MLX skates as of late. It’s the first and only goalie skate offering we’ve seen from this company with Mario Lemieux’s involvement. We wonder if MLX is coming out with these skates or if they’re just a player’s boot wrapped in a cowling.
The player’s skates have been out for several months now and they’ve got guys like Sergei Gonchar, Daniel Alfredsson, Dustin Byfuglien and Paul Gaustad using their product right now. But for a skate with a MSRP of $799 (currently on special for $599) we don’t know if we’d want to take the gamble and shell out top of the line money for a skate we can’t even try on before buying. That being said, we did sign up to test a pair of these skates but unfortunately we were not picked. So to the guys at MLX, if you’re interested in giving us a shot, drop us a line.
