If you think of GRAF skates as a regular family, with each member having his own unique characteristics and traits, The Elite 550 Goaler is the ideal parent: very supportive and protective, but encourages you to move in any direction you want. Built on the same foundation as our pro-level hockey skates ? fit, comfort and durability the 550 is specially designed to react to the rapid and unpredictable nature of a goalie’s movement. This is achieved by incorporating a Cobra Cowling with the hybrid nylon & PU upper for a soft, comfortable feel. The unique lateral support stiffeners enable netminders to make extreme and sudden shifts in lateral propulsion. Throw in the Thermolam heat molding construction, a GRILAMID toe cap and full outsole and you’ve got a skate with real personality.
