Default New Rhythm/Session Skates Day...

Hello all,

So I just figured out how to post pictures here on SkateLogForum earlier today and I wanted to share my new skates for rhythm and session. 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

Good looking set up.

How do you find the 63mm wheel. Iíve got the 57mm 101a on the skate and the 63mm arrived this week.

Thanks for the compliment! Honestly, I prefer the feel of the slightly firmer 103A wheel on the floors I frequent. I have a pair of 57mm/101A Bones Super Elite wheels and the 62mm/103A take the cake (for me). Once I get up to speed it doesn't take as much effort to keep the larger diameter wheel going and since I'm not dancing really hard they more than get the job done. I am still dialing in the plates so I might experiment with the 57mm/101A combination for feel but right now I'm good.
