The Alkali RPD Recon Skates are a great choice for the casual or new-to-hockey player who wants a good performing, long-lasting skate. The Pro Nylon boot can be heatmolded for a custom fit while the high-wear areas are well reinforced with anti-abrasion pads. The one-piece Alkali Movement chassis is a high-end feature not typically found on the price, providing better longevity and overall performance than two-piece counterparts. 

While the Pro Nylon boot protects the sides of the feet, Alkali used an excellent foam-reinforced felt tongue to protect the top. The HD foam lace-bite guard is thermoformable, meaning it will custom mold to the top of the foot for a truly personalized fit. Alkali also perforated the tongue to promote consistent airflow, keeping feet dry and cool all game long. 

The top of the RPD Recon's boot features Comfort Edge wraps that help to prevent the sides of the quarter package from digging into the ankles during aggressive stops, starts and turns. Alkali's new and unique tendon guard promotes complete stride extension with its flexible design while the small "windows" make carrying skates a breeze.
