Default New Skate Day (Again and Kind'a...)

Hello all,

So I just figured out how to post pictures here on SkateLogForum a few minutes ago. First order of business was to upload a picture of my Riedell Juice skates from a post that I made on June 5, 2019. I have upgraded since then and I am selling the Juice skates to a guy at my rink.

A lot of folks at the (two) rinks I frequent wear Edea boots (Classica, Fly, and a few Jazz roller boots). After doing some research and getting opinions from those skaters I decided to get fit for a pair of Classicas. I have wide (E-EE) feet and people on the forum were talking about how Edea boots run very narrow. However, after calling the folks at SkatesUS they told me to trace my feet w/ measurements and send the tracings to them. I did so and they were confident that they could mold a boot to my specifications. I went ahead and bit the bait. I got my Classicas about a week ago and I am very pleased to say that they fit like a glove. The higher heel is definitely noticeable but I was able to adjust after a few sessions. There is literally no break in with these and the plates are super responsive. Overall, I am ecstatic with my purchase :-)

My setup is:
- Edea Classica Boots
- Roll Line Mistral Plates w/ 8mm axels
- Bones Swiss Ceramic 8mm Bearings
- 103A Bones Super Elite 62mm Wheels

@EoinCuinn,

Very nice setup!! Those are some sharp skates and the Dance plates add to the aesthetic and performance Iím sure... I was considering the Fly boots but more folks had experience with the Classicas. Plus I heard the Fly is a stiffer boot which isnít necessarily better (or worse) for rhythm skating. May be a set for me in the future though!! As for the Roller Bones 101a Whiskey Super Elite wheels, Iíve bought 4 sets of them (Roller Bones 101a/103a) in the past month or two from an online retailer. The name slips my mind but I can find the info if youíd like and pm it to you?

Take care

I'm in Australia, so postage might be a killer, but yes please send it my way.

They are an amazing setup, but I am very glad I didn't get them as my first skates. I had a Rondo Boot / variant plate first. The Flamenco is a very stiff boot, and the plate is extremely responsive, I would have struggled a lot if these had been my first professional setup. I think you made the right call with the Classica. You can always go a Fly / Flamenco later on.

Yes, yes they were.....

Worth every cent though. The responsiveness on these things when dancing is unbelievable.
