So I got to spend a good bit of time on the Trigger Jeff Dalnas Pro Boot, they are shaping up to be pretty good. Now there are some issues with them that I lightly touched on, but I will go over those in depth later on. I just wanted to give you all a little insight into how these are feeling after about a few hours in these boots.
If you are getting foot pain you may just need to struggle through it until the padding breaks in. So just stick with them. they are solid grinding skates and feel really nicely balanced. I hope that you guys have a good experience with these skates. I will post a more about them soon. - Vintage Roller (Youtube).

Jeff Dalnas Pro Boot - Initial Thoughts by Vintage Roller (Youtube)
So this skate has great promise! It took a bit to get used to them, and the break in period is gonna be a few sessions to to get the comfortable. So no lie the first 15 minutes were pretty rough, but after a break and just chilling for a few with my skates on I was able to get past the initial boot pain.
I did notice while skating these that they have the weird Frame offset like the old Remz and you get the Remz lean while standing and pushing off, but once you get used to it, then you can fix how your feet positions on grinds and jump set up.
Overall these skates for a Pro Boot seem pretty legit and even as Mid Level boot would make a good boot. But for people just starting out, I would not recommend this boot. - Vintage Roller.
