The Reebok K skate series was designed to maximize power transmission, while providing a customized fit that enhances the skaters stride. The Dynamic Support System, or DSS, is evident throughout the series and refers to the ideal skate construction which optimizes flexibility and stiffness. Reebok uses its proprietary last, designed and engineered to provide stride-enhancing fit accuracy.
The 14K has a generous fit profile, but utilizes the Pump® technology which allows air to circulate around the ankles for great heel lock and a customized fit. The 14K is also equipped with the Skate Lock feature which allows for variability within two separate lacing zones - lower and upper. Reebok uses its Max Armour™ V construction in the quarter, which is a multi-layered package with an EPP foam core. It offers a good amount of lateral support. The flexion and spinal zones of the Dynamic Support System are also reinforced with EPP foam.
This quarter package construction makes these heat moldable, which adds to the already great amount of customization that this skate offers and means shorter break in time. The tongue is made of felt and EVA foam and has an external molded lace bite protector, designed to minimize tongue twist. The 14K has a vented fiberglass composite outsole which provides a good amount of rigidity for the boot to be mounted on.
If you're looking for a comfortable skate that is relatively lightweight, consider the 14K skates from Reebok.
