FROM SKATELOG FORUM HOST KATHIE FRY IN MARCH OF 2020:
This announcement is to let everyone know that after hosting the SkateLog Forum and its predecessors for nearly 20 years, I have decided it is time to permanently turn the forum over to a new owner and administrator. I cannot think of anyone more suitable to take on that role than my SkateLog forum co-host, Florida skater Jessica Wright. 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.

NEW FORUM NAME: SkateDebate Forum
NEW WEB SITE: SkateDebate.com
NEW OWNER AND ADMINISTRATOR: Jessica Wright

Default customized boots

Hello everybody,
For my 1st message I'd like to know web stores who sell/create personalized artistic boots for quad skates.
Except Riedell customs, I got this place in mind : http://atocskates.com/8-skates-for-men
(but I would prefer in Europe, shipping cost + customs duty are sooo expensive !!...)
Others ?

Harlick does custom boots but are expensive and take awhile to get them and have to be broken in also..

Hi Fred. You should totally make your own custom boots! There's plenty of places online to show you how to decorate leather shoes. You can add fabric to leather using an adhesive. Mostly on youtube I see them using Mod-Podge. You can paint on them and dec them out! I did it to my old skates and they were amazing. I just painted on them using acrylics (first I used a china marker to put down the pattern, then painted them). You already know Riedell and Harlick, so that's an option too. Good luck!
