Skating in Avanta Boots? (after skating in Klingbeils?)
« on: July 15, 2015, 12:31:49 AM »
Hi:

Just wondering how skaters are liking their Avanta boots.

Curious how skaters who had Klingbeils like their Avanta boots.

My Kligbeils need to be replaced SOON and I am considering Avantas.

I don't know anyone who has them yet.

Thanks,
M.E.

Check out the reviews on their FB page.  There have been numerous problems and dissatisfied customers.

I have a friend who just received hers. The customer service was a huge issue (and that seems to be true of many that I've talked to), but she likes the boots and they seem to be working well for the limited time that she's had them. She has only recently received them and is still breaking them in, but she likes them so far.

I've been in mine for a few weeks now after being in Klingbeil for 10 years.  I LOVE THEM!  They feel amazing after they are broken in.  My Klingbeil were 10 years old and broken down.  My only issue was the ordering, time it took to get made, customer service, and delays.  I went the their shop, got fitted by Bill F., paid for it all upfront that day which was Feb 21.  I FINALLY got them about 3 months later after constantly calling, texting, and emailing them.  Bill is no longer there but Wendy has made some major improvements in the company.  They are expensive but worth it in my opinion.
