Custom Harlick Figure Skating Boots
with CherryLoop Logo!
Well, I don’t how many people will be that interested in
our new boots, but I know I am!
I mentioned in a blog post back in November that we
dropped by the Harlick manufacturing facility for a little visit. It was an incredible visit by the way. We met Phil Kuhn, his wife Ginger, and the
rest of the small staff that is responsible for a good percentage of the skating
boots on the ice today. We already knew
Rudy quite well from our trip to the Southwest Regional Championships.
They gave us (my
wife Robin and our three figure skating daughters) a tour of the facility. You would not believe what all goes into
making a pair of Harlick Skating Boots (Quality in every pair – that is their
tagline ;)). Suffice it to say, you have
to be there to believe it. Every single
pair of boots, including stock boots are made by hand and with painstaking
detail. I can assure you, no stone goes
Phil also gave me a quick tutorial on the “correct” way
to put blades on the boots. I won’t go
into the details, but let me just tell you…there is a lot more to it than just
screwing on the blade. He also showed me
little tips and tricks to make certain every skater I fit will have the best
possible fitting boots. I watched and
participated in about 5 custom fittings, including fittings for our 3 girls.
Now we’re getting to the good part. It just happens to be time for our middle
daughter to get a new pair of boots, and so we put our money where our mouth
is. We purchased a pair of Custom
Harlick Boots. These boots have the
Double Duo Bond, White Elk Leather, with Flex Notch, 50/50 Lamb’s Wool and Foam
Rubber Tongue, Growth Insoles, Orthopedic Arch, Clarino Lining, with a standard
wax finish…AND our CherryLoop logo on the outside of each boot.
You too can have the CherryLoop logo (we’d pick up the
charge if you were interested), an initial, a little animal; etc, etc…the sky
is the limit on what Phil can put on the boot.
Here are some samples: Harlick Artistic Boot Designs.
We will be doing Harlick custom and stock fittings at the
Sooner State Games in Tulsa, OK. We are
also available for fittings by appointment, and we are happy to walk you
through the process on the phone. We absolutely
_love_ the Harlick Boots and we want you to be as happy with your boots as we
are with ours!
Here are some pictures of the infamous boots and some pics from our visit to Harlick:
