Question
What's the difference between 16K and 20K?

The stiffness is the first major difference. The 20K is pro level stiffness and the 16K is a decidedly mid-level skate. The tendon guard is cheap and flimsy on the 16K and the quarter would be much less durable. It all depends on how often you are skating and how big you are. If you're only skating once a week in a rec league, then go with the 16K. If you are playing competitively 3-4 times a week, you really should go with the 18K or 20K.

Just so you have an idea of my skating ability, I played prep school hockey growing up. After that I played 2 years of juniors. Now I work full time and play about 2-3 times per a week in a high level men's league skate.

16K - is the price friendly skate. I recently bought a pair and returned them for the 18K.

The 16k's are very nice, except I thought the tongue on them was very weak. If I got hit with a shot or chopped with a stick there would of been a good chance I would of broken my foot. However depending on your age and the competion you play against they are good skates. If I were you I would go with the 18k they are awesome.

The 20K skates are Reebok's top line skate so they are going to be the most expensive. A manufacture will give a price point to their highest skate and everything else is factored off them. The only thing they have when being compared to the 18k is they are a little stiffer, defiantly not worth a $200 jump though.

let me know if that helps

The 20K Reebok Pump skate is an upgrade from the 16k and 18K models. The 16K and the 18K are both still great skates for any level of play. The 20K is made in Canada and is lighter, more narrow and has a lighter weight Performance lite steel blade. The 20K offers more padding and support from the tongue to the boot construction. The 20k is going to be more comfortable due to the clarino moisture-wicking liner, the EPP foam in the tongue and the upgraded griptonite foot beds.
