Default Thoughts on these budget skates

https://www.skatehut.co.uk/brands/ro...s_burgundy.htm

They'd be mainly used in the skatepark and possibly in the rink with artistic wheels. I can't afford Moxys or Suregrip Boardwalks but these seem like a decent budget alternative. Tbh, I'm not 100% sure I can justify buying myself another pair of skates right now any way but I've come to absolutely love vert skating and the pair of beginner skates I thought would be fine for skating around on when taking my son to the skatepark aren't going to hold up as I get more adventurous.

Vert skating at that price? Not if you value your life/health.

A hearty Hell F ing No.

if your just going to roll around I guess they would be ok, but nothing more drastic. don't know the plate, the boot is passable and probably better then rental skates anyhow. if u can afford go up a step or 2.

Having monkeyed around with trying to fix alot of older skates,
I'd say that sucks. Much better to have the "nut" on the lower
end. Meh, just an opinion ~ worth exactly what you paid for it.

think the other ones will last longer, better wheels and plates are metal... don't care for the Barbie ones, sneakers might be more comfortable at first

The plates on the first pair are aluminium, which along with the leather boot, is why I was considering them. I'd plan on changing the wheels too. Although I do tend to favour soft wheels outdoors. I'm not wild on the style of boot but I've heard and read a lot of comments saying that a heeled skate can be a lot better for some types of skating. I usually wear a flat shoed skate with a low cuff and have Riedell Vixens for indoors.

Generally speaking, you are treading in rough territory. When prices get pretty low, SOMETHING ain't kosher. The question is what?

Yeah. I think I'll either go with the Chaya ones or keep looking. The skates I'm using outdoors now were seriously cheap though. So I need to replace them asap.

Id,recommend these https://www.skatebritain.net/riedell-citizen-12-p.asp

A lot of skate for the money, and easily upgradable to a metal plate, different wheels etc.

Excellent! I have sold many of them and everyone has been happy. I skate on the melrose elite (High Top "art-like" boot) on occasion, It is a fun skate, is super comfy, and performs well.
