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 Need new skates

Hello, ok......I need new skates..... the skates i have been using, are too small and i got them second hand (unused) and they lady i purchased them bought them for roller derby......they feel clunky also

I am after skates that look like a shoe (that quad speedies seems to have) that look very light and very manoeuvrable....... but where does one get these skates???

The 2 shops I have been looking at don't seem to have them.....is there some sort of secret underground place where all you guys get your cool skates? hahaha?

Any recommendations would be good, the cheaper the better......

Many Thanks

Cheaper is probably not going to be better in this case

Can you tell us what boot, plate and wheels you have currently? Then we know what you are currently working with.

Yep - I have a Luigino F1 Boot 9/41.5 (too small), Snap 92a wheels, Pilot Plate and Abec 7 bearings - I don't know too much about cushions just yet, I think it might be the boot that is clunky?? i don't know.....

I would just go new boot and wheels. You can make that plate work fairly well.

Cool

Yeah I agree....
Hack the stop off....
Fiddle with the cushions.
Go up a notch or two in wheels...

Only atom wheels I like are fusions...ok at carra...very grippy.
Plastic hub .. Take a few points of the A scale as well.
So your lowboys may say 95 but maybe really 93...
Ask the locals what they like.
I know Tim likes the new shamans but they tend to wear fast..
