The Tacks name is legendary among hockey skates. Boasting a rich history dating all the way back to 1905, we knew any new boot to bear the “Tackaberry” name would have a lot to live up to. Let us be the first to say, the CCM Tacks 5052 delivers great support, durability, and performance; ideal for the skater that demands more from a boot.
The heart and soul of the Tacks 5052 boot is CCM’s new Fiber Reinforced ATTACKFRAME™. Comprised of rigid fiber reinforcements in both the heel and eyelet facing, these attack fibers store and release energy as the player flexes forward; and when combined with CCM’s Formula T5 Core, the result is a responsive boot with explosive speed.
The new SpeedBlade 4.0 Holder design provides an additional four millimeters of height (when compared to the older E-Pro holder), which allows for a greater angle of attack and more aggressive turns. Complementing the SpeedBlade 4.0 Holder is CCM’s SpeedBlade Stainless steel runner, which provides a long lasting edge for long term performance. The holders are then riveted to a Vented Fiber Nylon Composite Outsole which helps increase torsional rigidity and maximize energy transfer.
CCM’s commitments to fit and comfort are easily seen in the new Tacks 5052 skate. The Contoured Fit profile provides a close fit in the heel and ankle with a medium width throughout the boot. A comfortable Duretex material lines the inside of the boot. Duretex is smooth to the touch, and performs impressively in terms of both durability, as well as moisture wicking properties. Add a 7mm Felt Tongue with EVA foam and external, injected lace bite protection, and you have a boot that provides lightweight performance with superior fit and comfort. The package is finished with CCM’s Fit System footbed for added comfort and support.
If you’re looking for increased stiffness and performance to help take your game to the next level, pick up the CCM Tacks 5052 today and go on the attack!

I came from a Bauer Supreme 170 to this skate. Every bit as reactive and comfortable as my old blades. These are lightweight and give you a tighter turn because of the 4mm higher holder and blade. These are very sharp looking skates and very protective as well. Slightly heavier than my old skates but not noticable at all on the ice. Their still not broken in but the fit is great, with no foot pain whatsoever. They'll only get better with more usage and I believe they will be very durable as well. Didn't get them baked because I'm old school and like to break them in gradually , I just find they fit better that way. I highly recommend them. Tried the Reebok Ribcore before these but I'm not a fan of the lace lock or pump features. I much prefer the Tack fit and responsiveness. 9 out of 10 on these blades.Review by Duch (Posted on 7/24/2016)
I've been a Tacks user for pretty much my entire life (752 Kevlars for about 10 years, 852 for about 8 years) and I have to say the new 5052's have been the best. Very light weight, were pretty easy to break in, hold a good fit throughout the game, and also have vents on the bottom that allow you to air out the skate a lot more easily.Review by Bill (Posted on 7/24/2016)
The boot is also stiff and strong. I've taken a couple of hard shots to the boot and felt pretty well protected.
The one thing to look out for is sizing. I wear a 9.5 shoe and my last pair of skates (CCM, have you) were a comfortable size 8. When I tried the size 8's in the 5052's they were GIGANTIC on me. I went down to a 7 and they fit well...so basically the sizes run a little small from my experience.
Like other commenters, I am old school and do not bake, so cannot speak to how these skates respond to that process.
Overall, great lightweight skate that had good balance, holds a good edge, and is stiff and sturdy.
Coming back to add some color to my previous review. I've had the skates for about 18 months now, and some of the leather inside the boot is coming apart, especially near the eyelets on the ankle. I skate once a week (occasionally 2 times). I've never had this problem with my previous CCM skates, not even after 8+ years.Review by Bill (Posted on 7/24/2016)
Again, love the skate, but disappointed about how easily it's starting to come apart. Not sure if I would go with CCM after this one.
