My sons year ended a couple of weeks ago and he just started a spring league. As I was getting my son ready to go out on the ice today the head guy came up to me and made a comment on my sons skates. My son has a pair of mission 120's and he said that I bought him to much skate for his age (7 years old). He told me that the boot is to stiff and his ankle's won't develope as much because the boot is so stiff. Is this correct? The skates were $80 on sale so I wouldn't be out a lot of money, but I want to get some feed back before buying a different pair. Thanks in advance for any help.
