After an hour or so trying stuff on with the advice of the Skate Shop Owner, we spent 3 times the original cost, but ended up with much better gear.
I've been motorcycling since I was 6, and we have a saying ATGATT (All The Gear, All The Time), seems logical to apply the same discipline in skating.

Jim welcome to the boards, sorry to hear about your wife. hve fun skating with your daughter, not sure what type of skating your going to be doing but try to find smooth surfaces if your outside. enjoy
Ciao Rick
