First Custom Boots
Finally everything to assemble my new skates with Pinnacle Tsunami boots are here.
I wanted to equipped with carbon frames but Tusa frames did not have inverntory so I bought Lugino Pilot instead. Wheels are Matter F3, bearings are standard as I don't need any particular fast bearing at this point (I will replace them with Swiss later).
I just can't wait skating with them!

Skated with socks on
First day with socks on!
The custom boots fitting is getting better and better. It was so difficult to put in my feet in the boots on the day one. Skated with no shoe lace and no socks for twice or three times - both for a short distance. The boots sometimes take a few skates to get loosened up and get the foot to sit all the way back.
They are getting better so I added shoe lace yesterday. Still no socks.
Today is the first day usign socks. I chose the thinest socks I have and they worked fine.
These boots are really great. I think I will love them a lot once they are fully customized (loosened). Frames are great, too. Actually I was going to mount carbon frames but they were not available so I chose Pilot frames as for an alternative (and temporarily) solution. It turned out to be great frames that I will probably use for long.

Where is everybody?
Skated in Central Park and found no other skaters at all.
It was very windy this morning but wind died down by noon time.
It was not too cold and enjoyed skating with my Pinnacle boots. Skaters typically sleep late so probably they come out later in the afternoon.
