Hard shell boots weigh more or less the same. You can shave a few grams here and there (aluminium axles, lighter frames, wheels with less urethane), but to go considerably lighter you need carbon.

You can shave a few grams here and there (aluminium axles, lighter frames, wheels with less urethane), but to go considerably lighter you need carbon. u/miraiyuni wouldn't necessarily *need* to go with CFRP, but he would likely need to move away from a traditional hardboot. That is, a plastic freestyle/slalom boot like the [Seba Trix2](https://sgsports.shop/collections/seba-skates-1/products/seba-trix2-80) or [Seba High Light](https://sgsports.shop/collections/seba-skates-1/products/seba-high-light-80-black) (able to be bought as a boot-only option [here](https://thuroshop.com/products/seba-boot-only)) should work just as well.


miraiyuni

ohh thank you!


Mr_BLADES-HSV

HOW MUCH $$ DO YOU WANT TO PART WITH?? Adept GTB fits the bill @ $1100....But there are LOTS of other options too.


miraiyuni

AH, MAYBE AROUND $400? The boot looks like a soft boot, kinda want a hard boot.


Mr_BLADES-HSV

it is a HARD boot, but cost conscious idea is SEBA FR boot with an intuition liner. [https://thuroshop.com/products/seba-boot-only?\_pos=1&\_sid=69a0799f9&\_ss=r&variant=36989977091](https://thuroshop.com/products/seba-boot-only?_pos=1&_sid=69a0799f9&_ss=r&variant=36989977091)
