The 2011 Mission catalog was unveiled a few weeks ago, and the Mission Axiom T9 will take over as the top of the line skate this fall. The Axiom line will be Mission’s first entire product line released after being purchased by Bauer. The T9 skate comes in a clean black and white look, but still maintains some of the flare you would expect from a Mission product. They also feature Mission Swiss LE 608 bearings, and the brand new Rink Rat Split XXX grip wheels.
In addition to that, you’ll notice Mission has implemented a number of comfort upgrades for players to enjoy with these skates. The form fitting ankle pockets will give every player a great fit right out of the box. There’s also a great vented tongue which will help keep your feet cool, as well as protecting you from lace bite. Last but not least you’ll find a great slip-grip foot bed to keep your heel and foot from slipping around.
