*** The SkateLog Forum Has Been Replaced by SkateDebate Dot Com ***

FROM SKATELOG FORUM HOST KATHIE FRY IN MARCH OF 2020:
This announcement is to let everyone know that after hosting the SkateLog Forum and its predecessors for nearly 20 years, I have decided it is time to permanently turn the forum over to a new owner and administrator. I cannot think of anyone more suitable to take on that role than my SkateLog forum co-host, Florida skater Jessica Wright. I am pleased to announce that Jessica has agreed to establish and host a brand new skating forum, configured like the SkateLog Forum, but with a new name and a new Web Site. This new forum is 100% owned and operated by Jessica.

NEW FORUM NAME: SkateDebate Forum
NEW WEB SITE: SkateDebate.com
NEW OWNER AND ADMINISTRATOR: Jessica Wright

And this is all you need.. BUT.. the 795.. wont even last that long... Id compare its construction to that of a slipper... its comphy but you wouldnt want to run a mile in them...

Rebels are certainly no worse than R3s or Vixens or the like. They're a leather upper which doesn't hurt their longevity.

Any boot in a derby application should be considered consumable.

And you're right, Rog, that Invader plate will live forever and will remount to another boot just fine when the time comes.
