Default First aggro skates... tips on buying

Hey, I recently posted a topic "rollerblade TRS team"

I'm looking to buy my first pair of aggro skates, I will need to learn how to properly skate (stuff like backwards skating ) on them too.


I just need suggestions for different models of skate I should look at too, I'll get hte shop to order them in so I can compare with the TRS teams and see which one I like best out of the lot.

I want them to last me a long time, of course I will need to change the frames and wheels after a while but of course I want the skate to be good. I dont want it just to be good for beginners, I want it to be a really nice skate for beginners and advanced skaters alike.

Preferably a flat rocker stock set up.

As a guideline, Remz 07one cost about 200 in the UK.

Anything around the price of those remz is fine. So if they're 299 in america, something around there. I didnt get to try those on as they didnt have them in my size.

Please recommend, I'm still considering hte TRS teams btw.

I tried on Shima 7s, didnt like them as they had too many laces, took forever to put on, and were anti-rocker stock (but I can always buy 4 wheels if the best skate REALLY is an antirocker skate)

I will probably upgrade frames and wheels in june anyway.

if you prefer a flat rocker set up, you should check out the USD dominic sagona thrones.

sadly, they're white, and I know white skates would look retarded on me.

I'd get the TRS teams if I find they fit me well, as long as I would know while wearing them I'd have no regrets.

I'd rather have skates I'm comfortable that they will look good and not draw too much attention for looking weird as hell.

if you cant find a skate that you like stock, go to aggressivemall.com rollerwarehouse.com or skatepile.com and use the custom skate builder.

Just go get Gen 5's and be done with it. They're fantastic, what more could you want?

You'll learn to love the laces, they are very very good at what they do, so don't complain.
