I am in the process of trying to buy a pair of blades and i can not find the difference between a hard boot and a soft boot. What would you guys recommend for someone who hasn't really bladed that much before? Btw, if it helps, i am 5'10" 150 lbs

as with most options for blades, it's preference. I've skated both and decided I like soft boots better. I'm on USD carbons right now. You tell me what you want the skate too feel like and I'll go from there.
I'm a Mount Snow College Rep Again this year. ,Message Me if you want a $275 unlimited pass to Mount Snow, Big Boulder, Jack Frost, Crotched and Attitash. Its basically the best deal ever.
for those messaging me wondering what the hells going on with AppleHeadz, fret not. I've finally found a business partner and we're preparing for launch...for real this time!
I've never had a skate hurt my foot for wearing it for too long, they're not like ski boots (although those shouldn't really do that either). Doing rails and stuff is a critical part of skating but how about this; do you want them flexy or stiff? weight preference? size prefernce?
There's always trusty models to look at like:
Razors aragons 3's or 4's.
People usually always like those. They're all hardboots.
to the other kid, I love my carbons. I've got mooks on there, been skating freestyle since xsjado started. The carbon 2's look really cool, when I run through these I'll see about those.
I skated the large shelled xsjados for a bit and I liked them. They're a little big, I would get the small shell ones. But I liked them, they worked with the sneakers I was using but I would imagine they'd work better with the footwraps. The souls are huge, nice flex. Don't buy xsajdos right yet, they're releasing a new mold soon. Actually it might be awhile, not sure. Those switch frames with huge wheels would be awesome for park.
Those cults are good skate, people like them. I don't think there was a major difference between the 8 and 9 so get the 9. What frames do they come with?
