Customised Edea Ice Fly's
« on: December 24, 2016, 09:42:07 PM »
As I have mentioned on here before, I have very short and wide feet for a guy. I am also on a tight budget.  It's not easy, to find a pair of heat moldable\heat shapeable men's boots my size used, so I went to look on Ebay for a good pair of skates and found a pair of Edea Ice Fly's that fit the bill.

The Edea's were a bit too feminine, to just wear them as is, due to the bling on the sides and just being white, so I got creative and purchased some Angelus leather shoe paint and got creative. It was kind of a shame to paint them because they were in such good shape, but oh well... :0)

Thank you very much. :0) A lot of people that have seen them, seem to like them. The girl who took the pic, posted it to her Instagram. I posted a pic on my Facebook page and I was only expecting 2 or 3 people to like them, but close to a dozen people liked them. Lol

Great job! They actually look a lot like hockey skates now -- very masculine :)

They are quite different for sure. I am getting used to them nicely too. I just put JW Gold Seal blades on them about a week ago and love them!
