They took a game or two to really break-in but once they did, the stop/start and change of directions were phenomenal.
The biggest draw to me about these shoes compared to the H5 is the construction. The shoes look and feel well put together with greater toe, foot, and ankle support than the H5s. The lower band to cover laces was a great idea and the top band to secure your ankle is innovative.
I look forward to Gecko further developing their broomball shoes after this product. These are my favorite shoes since the Acacia Trios.
