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.

Default K2's (or comfortable skates)

Hi guys. I'm a slalom skater, but have been looking for something completely different as far as boots go. My slalom skates punish my feet, they are REALLY hard skates.

I've been dreaming of having a skate as comfortable as my old K2 Fatty's. The Fatty's felt like a slipper, the most comfortable thing I've ever worn.

I'm finally able to make that happen, as Seba now sells a freestyle frame that will fit onto an aggressive boot. So my question is this...

Are K2 aggressive skates still as comfortable as they were in 1998? I'm looking at this pair, but I'd have to get the Seba frame, as this one is too long for slalom.

Or here's another way to put it...what is the most comfortable boot you've ever worn?

I have the midtowns and they're very reminiscent of the old fattys--if you liked those, I can't imagine you not liking these

The stock frames also aren't THAT long.. I know nothing about slalom other than putzing around with a few moves, but those 80's are about as close together as you can get. Stock frame is also rockerable, so that's cool

my TRS with Blank liners in them are also crazy comfortable, but if you want these for slalom, you're gonna want something that you don't have to worry about things like soul plate bolts rattling free on, so... I think K2 is about your only option, other than maybe like USD carbons

Thanks BTW. I got them for Christmas. I haven't skated on them yet because I also got some Freeline skates at the same time (it's like a skate board for each foot with two wheels). I'm so completely in love with the Freelines now, that my inlines have gone to the side (just for the time being...new toy). Thanks, the K2's are almost as comfortable as the old Fatty Pros.
