Not even SportsAuthority.com has men’s figure skates. What the hell. *mutter*
I called the people at NewSkates.com, which is where I bought my skates, and got a return code for the skates I had and talked to the woman there who said that she probably wouldn’t bother trying to order men’s skates from them, because their men’s skates are cut in medium widths and she suspects a medium width isn’t going to be any wider than a women’s wide. She gave me another URL to try, which has proved to not have any wide men’s skates either, but it was still very nice of her!
On another note (laaa!), there will be another Chicks anthology, but they don’t take unsolicited submissions. OTOH, the editor, Esther Friesner, has been very nice in email. :)
Crap. Nowhere in the entire universe carries wide men’s skates. I want to ice skate, but I want skates that fit! I won’t *use* them if they don’t *fit*! I could order a pair of custom-made ones for like FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS, but I don’t THINK so. Gaargh!
