Has anyone had an ankle strap added to their skates? I’ve been quoted £80 to get mine done
:faint:
and was wondering if that seemed fair/normal? Maybe I should just get jam straps instead?
Anyone really love/hate/indifferent to their jam straps?

For the most part, even hand made skates are made on a productionn line of sorts. Adding customisations to them means someone taking teh parts of that boot off the production line and away from the normal manufacturing process to change/add parts. Which does tend to carry a significant customisation fee. Generally you will find if you want to add a second customisation (like a boot loop or a set back etelet or even colours) then it is cheaper after the initial charge.
